If you are looking for a great Cuban sandwich come visit this place. Make sure you ask for a mojito with your delicious sandwich and maybe some fried plantains :)

This restaurant had really good food. The wait staff were plentiful, quick and always available. One of the best mojitos we've ever had. The take up a very large section of the outside center square. Umbrellas, lights. Nice stop before airport.

We had lunch here at a sidewalk table and really enjoyed. Black bean soup and pork tamale were both good. My friend had the steak sandwich and she really enjoyed it also. Great place to eat and people watch.

We rented a car and had to paid a lot for valet parking at the hotel. I would recommend walking if you can and park in the residential neighborhood if your there for just the evening.
