Get here by 5:30pm, or be ready to wait in line, BUT it is so worth the wait. Food and service are excellent. Hidden away from Duvall street, this joint is a great find

I asked the waitress what to eat, so she took care me. Yellow Rice, Black beans, Plantains and steak. Fabulous. Large portion, tasted like really good home cooking. Something you would happily go back again and again for. The restaurant is simple, and the staff helpful. It was packed, which is always a good sign. Not only the quality of... More

This visit was even better than we remembered from 9 years ago! Our dinner included perfect medium rare skirt steak, grilled shrimp, plantains, yellow rice and black beans - wonderful! With Sangria and Flan for dessert, and friendly service, El Siboney is a great restaurant for couples and families...anyone who enjoys excellent food and value!

We love this restaurant, the food and the service has always been great! The location is off the beaten path and you actually have locals eating at this location. The Cuban bread is terrific.

Working off TA ratings, we walked here from Southern Point. Buried in a residential neighborhood and frequented by neighbors. No reservations and the place was packed. Dining room is sort of hidden from the entrance so don't be off put. Food was like home cooking. Nothing fancy just great food at a wonderful price. Sangria was too good.

The casual atmosphere and delicious Cuban cuisine made this a great break from the awesome seafood we had been enjoying. From the looks of it, a lot of locals like this place, too! The service was fine, but more helpful and friendlier service would have made this a 5.

This was our first stop on a food tour and we were served Cuban pork, rice and beans, Cuban bread and Cuban coffee. SOOO GOOD, we would have stopped here again for another meal on our vacation but ran out of time.

Every “conch” we asked said this was the best place to go for great, “tipico” Cuban food at very reasonable prices. Their Picadillo with Rice and Beans and Sweet Plantains was excellent. They also had Hatuey Beer, a Cuban favorite, although theirs came out of South Carolina. Although El Sibonny is a bit off the beaten path, it’s well worth... More

My Wife and I eat at El Siboney every visit to Key West ! And usually twice in the week we are visiting. I get the El Siboney steak, it is never disappointing. The seafood is good too with the Spanish flare.

Fast, friendly service with a delicious product. A nice break from the bustle of Duvall street. I sat by the door and saw everyone welcomed quickly and with a smile. Take it out, eat it in, just don't miss this wonderful culinary experience for dynamite Cuban food!!
