Beautiful restaurant. The bread and mango butter is addictive. It’s so good! Our entree’s were good! It’s a chain but it is really good food!

Wonderful Cuban restaurant in Tropicana's The Quarter. Nicely decorated, nice atmosphere, not too noisy. Spacious seating. On the pricey side, but reasonable for an AC restaurant.

Stopped in for a drink, decided to stay for lunch. I tried the grilled pineapple mojito and was very impressed. The crab topped guacamole with plantain chips is definitely a must try. Host, bartenders, and server were very attentive.

As a former bartender, I knew what was going on in a restaurant. I like to go into a restaurant and sit at the bar, for those reasons. We did this during the week, the services, recommendations and food were beyond expectations.

I don't believe so. The restaurant is located in The Quarter, a kind of New Orleans style indoor plaza with shops and other restaurants. I would contact the restaurant to be sure though.
