Huge portions, bring your appetite or share. Make sure you order sweet plantain, delicious! My group shared with each other, and everything was amazing. Vegetarian black beans a plus. Happy hour drinks are two for one.

It is a modest restaurant with delicious tasting Cuban food. The prices are moderate and their service was very personable. Our young waiter Alejandro made some delicious Mojitos for our wives and he consistently came around to ensure that we were ok with everything!

We visited yesterday. I ordered seafood casserole. It was a big portion but the taste was good! The service was good as well. But I wondered about the restroom. It was clean. I probably went to the kid toilet...!? One of inside doors was tiny... just my curious....

The food was good. The service was ok, the waiter seemed overwhelmed at times. The Milanese was good. The boiled yuca was great. The flan tasted old, but was not terrible.

Tamale Cubanos are delicious. The staff is friendly. The dining room is suffering from a identity crisis. I could not focus on my meal because there is music playing in the bar and live music in the dining room. Listening to both is weird. It ruined my meal and atmosphere. Pick one or the other. Thank goodness for the staff.

I have been coming to Don Arturo's for thirty years. It is always excellent food and service. I recommend Masa de Puerco, yuca, moros. Don't miss out on the Cuban coffee called colada.

Good food. Tasted the tamale and steak. Service was good. Rice and beans were good and the fried tostones were really good.

Really want to try this place. We heard great things.. Got all the way there but never got the chance. Why does it close so early..? 9:30pm is a very weird time.

I was in Ft Lauderdale for a night with the family. I was looking for a place to eat some Cuban food. I didn't feel like driving down to Miami and was told about this place. We went on a Wednesday evening for an early dinner. The place wasn't crowded and we sat right away. We were waited on right... More
