Well it has been awhile since our last visit. We happened to be in Orlando and remembered how good the food was. Very disappointed this time. The food everyone had seemed the food had been sitting in the kitchen for sometime. The chicken dish was very dry. The shrimp dish had shrimp not cleaned. The triple dish had small amounts... More

We dropped into this Cuban restaurant for a quick lunch. We were searching for quick, delicious, and not-another-chain. We were not disappointed!! The service was friendly & efficient; the restaurant, clean & appealing. But, wow - the food!! We ordered the chicken sandwich & the Midnight (Cuban, with different bread) sandwich specials. I give both sandwiches my highest rating: Crave!... More

Número uno specializes in Spanish food Cuban and Dominican to precise. The waitress are very nice they always greet you with a smile very attentive. My favorite plate is the roast pork with congri (rice mix with black beans), salad and yellow sweet fried plaintains. They prove bread and butter while you wait for your food. My order with glass...

Cuban cuisine in Orlando, the coffee is the genuine article and the staff is friendly so it makes you feel like home.

Went there for a quick lunch with a relative. The Cuban food was great and the prices really good. Good service but limited tight parking. The Cuban sandwich and plantains hit the spot. The others had roasted chicken and yellow rice, loved it.

Service is lousy and our waitress won the prize for surliness. Oh Picadillo - where was the beef? It was a salty, tomato based pool of nothing. Cold plantains, watery black beans. Appetizer of mariquitas arrived stale and cold with watered down vinegary mojo sauce. Steak dinner was 12 bucks and looked like a child's portion. Parking sucks. I grew... More

When we walked in we were greeted by a server and she assisted us to wherever we wanted to sit. The atmosphere was... More

In Orlando for a conference, not the park thing. Met up with some local friends for dinner here. Being from the Midwest, we have never had Cuban food and we jumped at the opportunity to try it. We enjoyed both our meals and we tried all the desserts in a round robin experience. Good service, flavorful food. This is definitely... More
