This was one of our favorite restaurants, I'm sad to report it has slipped dramatically.Our party of four were totally underwhelmed. My shrimp dish had no taste. In reality it tasted like boiled shrimp. My wife thought her dish was just ok, in the past...More

Stumbled on this restaurant while staying in the neighborhood. I'd never tried Cuban food before so have no comparisons but I did enjoy the experience and food. Wait staff is super friendly and service was great. Plates are large enough to share.

A tiny Cuban restaurant featuring colorful walls lined with family-like photos and tchotchkes that is always packed with patrons and abuzz with conversation, Pambiche serves traditional Cuban fare that is inventive and delicious. That may account for the perpetual lines that snake out the front...More
