Food was amazing. Made a reservation we didn't have to wait. Highly recommend it. The atmosphere was good. Loved that they played music throughout dinner. The food came out quick and hot. Dessert was delicious.

Went for half price Cuban Sandwich day. Who can resist that. The sandwiches were pretty good but nothing special. Same with the empanadas. The Mojitos and lemonade were really good. Service was excellent. A bit touristy.

Food might be good but never go there just for drinks. They're overpriced and the staff isn't very friendly. The only big plus is that they have a huge selection of rum.

Large menu and nice variety of Cuban tapas and other items. Started with mojitos...how can you do Cuban without Mojitos? Empanadas and traditional Cuban sandwich were outstanding. Black bean soup was mediocre, but that was the only thing we did not enjoy. Service good. It...More

Definetly, they are huge portions. Usually, if I go with a friend we order a couple of appetizers to share and one main dish.

I can only say that the night I was there they had a live band. I think it was a Friday night. I'm sure you could call them and ask.
