Ernesto & Fidel is a wonderful restaurant. We had a group of over 20 people and they were so accommodating to make sure that everything was flawless and food was provided in a timely manner. The staff is the most friendly and amazing group of individuals you'll ever meet and they really seem like they care about your experience. 5... More

From the first big welcome as we approached the cafe to the authentic Latin Saturday nite live guitar music/singing, our visit was a joy. The ambiance in dining on the outdoor porch overlooking the marina and eating such delicious Latin food is wonderful!

Wonderful good, very friendly staff, excellent entertainment. We had three different dishes and they were all good. One person in our party was vegan and they made a wonderful salad for her and were wiling to alter other dishes to her liking. The owner plays the guitar along with another fellow and they were quite enjoyable to listen to.

Hard to find on GPS but trust your map as you turn east into what looks like a resort parking lot. Inside you will find parking, a nice grocery store and several restaurants. The one we choose was because of the name however it is name only; neither Ernst nor Fidel were ever there! We missed out on the fantastic... More
