Good Cuban food. Do a good job on authentic Tampa Cuban dishes. Very good tips veigha and Cuban pork. Like the Spanish bean soup and caldo Gallegos. 7th Ave salad great for lunch. Good as 95% of Tampa Spanish restaurants.

I had never had authentic Cuban food. This restaurant was recommended by our hotel bartender and was an absolute hit! The food, service and drinks were excellent. The atmosphere was friendly and the waitress knew the menu well. An overall great experience with delicious food!
