This is real Cuban. The exquisite decor of the restaurant is not reflected in the prices. I had the Pollo Asada. It is a whole chicken leg with thigh. It is roasted with Cuban spices. This, along with most dishes, comes with 3 sides. I...More

We came in to a very aggressive waiter pushing a number of specials and combos, but we opted for the lunch buffet and it was quite good. A lot of options, good salads and soups, well-done sides like garlic-and-butter boiled yucca, and a variety of...More

Came recommended by a local and with good reason. The two of us enjoyed a combination plate, two entree (pork with onions and a skirt steak) and they were fantastic. The Mojitos hit the spot but they go down too easy!
