My two friends and I stopped in for coffee and ended up ordering salads, wine and entrees- al for about $40 total. Fresh food, deliciously prepared, although not everything on the menu was available. We took the advice of our friendly waiter on what to order and weren't disappointed. Interior looks small from street, but downstairs, there is plenty of... More

I eat well here but it was more like homemade food, not a special "cuban" revelation. The type of places that mimic to stand out but they honestly don't. Decent place, take it for sure if you don't have any other solid options.

Wow! I just popped in here to sample the late night buzz that the place was giving out when I walked past, and ended up spending 3-4 hours here. Great vibe to this place with a good selection of cocktails to sit back and enjoy when you soak in the Latin American vibes. Definitely a hidden gem on the Kyiv... More

Not the place to go for food, although they have some cuban dishes who dont look particularly appealing. I had a cubano sandwich which was okay. good draft beers, with an excellent Spanish Estrella but of course you should drink rhum. live music as of 10pm on friday and saturday, very cool ambiance and people. the place has a lot...
