We had the Palomilla steak which was excellent, my wife had the steak sandwich and my son got milanesa steak tenders which were great also. It is a very small and cozy place.

My husband comes here on every trip for a cup of Cuban coffee. We haven't tried the food yet, but I bet it's authentic and tasty. The workers are nice.

This is a little hole in the wall restaurant and don't expect speed as they do one order at a time but what you get is well worth the wait. very friendly staff and great food

I haven't had legit Cuban fare since leaving Miami. The Cuban sandwich was on point! The tostones were fresh and crisp. The plantains were heaven. But...my golden find, was Materva to drink. Can't wait to go back! The staff was fabulous as well!
