Monday night and eight of us with no reservations. I hear from the locals the key is to get there right at five when they open. We got there at six and had no problem. I suspect if it was a weekend we may not have had so much luck. The restaurant is in two connected houses with a nice... More

We went there before attending a show and the food was a highlight from that night. Paella was well done and flavorful, ropa vieja was also great. Looking forward to return.

We come here often and love it. Not Miami Cuban but close. Love the Vaca Frita and mojitos. Kind of loud but worth it!

A quaint place downtown that is a couple of converted old houses joined to make a larger place. It is well maintained and the tulips were in full bloom so a pretty sight. They have their own (metal) palm tree also. I took a group of 16 people on a Tuesday evening for an early dinner. Our server was Derek... More

This restaurant resides within two historic homes with a funky palm tree art feature. The main dining room is beyond whimsical with over-sized palm fans, and layered canvas flounces affixed to the ceiling (reminiscent of a beach cabana). The bar side has an eclectic collection of original art, and an artistic bar wall arrangement. The breezeway is clad with wood... More

Absolutely amazing cuban cuisine! Definitely on the list of recommendations for friends and family visiting Denver. The rice is delicious, and their meat is so so good! The service is great and the staff is super friendly and helpful at choosing what to eat.

Arrive early~~~it was a Friday evening~~~they open at 5:00 pm~~~as it gets very crowded very fast which added to the noise level in our area, tremendously. It was quite obvious that this is a popular place, especially on a Friday night. There are two dining areas and we were seated in the glass walled room that seemed set up for... More

We had 2 appetizers, 3 entrees, 8 drinks and 2 deserts for $171. The dinner lasted 3 hours and we were never rushed. My friends described it as "great food, great service, and great atmosphere." For friends getting together, it was wonderful. I'm not big on fries, but their Mojo fries are incredible. All of the entrees were great. The... More
