I have eaten at this family owned and operated restaurant for over 20 years. The food is always superb, the service outstanding, and the cost is unbelievably low. If you haven't tried it, you're missing one of the best restaurants in Tampa Bay.

Yes It's good, but there are plenty of Cuban style restaurants in Tampa that are good and competition is stiff! They don't really create a large separation from all the other Cuban style restaurants so in comparison they hit the average mark. We started with their Tostones that I found to be a bit over fried and dry but still... More

It is located near the Dale Mabry and Hillsborough Ave intersection. The place is small and decorated as an old 50's restaurant, but the service and the food are excellent. Food really tastes like authentic Cuban food. The Ecuadorian server is super nice. We had the whole fried red snappers which take around 1/2 hour to be ready, but it... More

Crowded most of the time but it is worth the waiting. Authentic Cuban food. Fast service and in the middle of the city.

This is a very down-to-earth family Cuban restaurant. The food was very authentic. It is very casual and small. Portions were generous and everything was very tasty. We enjoyed the Masas de Puerco, they were very well marinated and tender. Have to say that the flan was the best we have ever had in a restaurant! We will be going... More

i had the daily special which was a chicken dish and although it was tasty and spiced properly, they used French fries in the dish disguised beneath the sauce. Portions were adequate but should have provided more variety. The dish came with rice and black beans, perhaps adding fried plantains would have made me overlook the French fries.
