A friend of my sons recommended this place when we asked for good Cuban food. I was impressed. Food was flavorful and restaurant was very clean. We did have language barrier issues but we got what we ordered and left totally satisfied! Will go again...More

This place is obviously a neighborhood fixture. Huge drive-through and walk-up lines, and lots of seating. Won the annual croquetas contest. Great lamb chops and pot roast. Wish we had time to try more on the menu!

I absolutely love Islas Canarias. One of the most delicious and authentic Cuban restaurants that I have ever eaten at. Hands down best croquetas in Miami and I love their fried malanga. Delicious! Great times with great people and it is well worth the wait!

Islas Canarias is a great restaurant for fresh and authentic Spanish food. Excellent service and the restaurant is always open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They have best coquetas in town. Strongly recommended for families or any occasion, including business luncheons; reasonable prices.
