We loved our experience here! We started with "chorizos al vino" which is a type of Spanish sausage in a nicely seasoned wine sauce and tamales. Our entree was "rabo de vaca" that is a cow's tail with peppers and onions. This was my first time tasting this dish, and I loved the flavorful and tender meat. The side item of tostones were crispy and delicious. We ordered "mojitos" that were perfectly made and listened to beautiful live music while watching some people at our nearby table dancing to "El Cantinero". Overall, it was an amazing experience and I as I write the memory of "Cantinero deme un trago, dos tragos, tres tragos y coloque esas canciones que ahogan las penas..." and the delicious food comes to mind. Great memories!

After living in Miami for almost 30 years, I'm always looking for good Cuban food. This is definitely the place!! Some of the best food I've had. We had the pork and congri with plantains and it was out of this world. Highly recommend!

Packed on a Saturday night. Best mojitos since I was in Havana while we waited for a table. Delicious dinner, wine, live band, surprise singer, and patrons dancing. Such an enjoyable night. Can't wait to go back.

On a cold, New York evening, this place was wall-to-wall people at 8:00 p.m. A GREAT fibe. The food was amazing and the live music transports you to Havana!
