This is a neighborhood restaurant in Culver City on busy Sepulveda Blvd. It tries for a festive atmosphere with fishing nets and plastic crustaceans and photos and pictures of Cuba (but it's definitely not fancy and does not try to be more than a good...More

I love this "Corner" restaurant. The food is authentic (I'm native Cuban), and so is the kitschy vibe. I love that I can have fresh coconut water with my meal. They will stick a straw and an umbrella in a coconut on ice. The wait...More
