The menu is small, but the food was delicious, and the owner came out and talked with us for a while, then he and a woman who also worked there sang us a couple of songs. They're good musicians and good hosts!

Never thought we’d eat Cuban food in Alaska, but we visited onto this place after reading the Trip Advisor reviews. The food was delicious. I had the Cuban pork and my husband had the Cuban style salmon, and both were excellent! Antonio, the owner, is...More
