This is our "go to" Cuban restaurant in Cape Coral. The food is very good and the prices are excellent. They have weekly specials and their cocktails are 2 for 1. I'm not sure if that is all day or only certain hours. We had...More

I ordered the large Cuban sandwich but I was dissatisfied. It lacked in meat and was mostly bread. My wife had the skirt steak which she enjoyed. Probably won’t go back.

My roasted pork was very flavorful, tender, and juicy, but it was lukewarm when it arrived. My husband ordered the shredded pork, and the flavor was good but it was very dry. My son loved his tilapia, and the rice and beans were very good....More
