Located on Atlantic Shores, this is a good neighborhood, local, non fancy place. The food is good. I would recommend this place if you don't want the touristy vibe.

Excellent food and service. We all had different dishes, beef, pork, and fish. Everything was tasty. They had a Peruvian beer, which I liked. Coconut Flan for dessert, delicious. We would definitely go back!

Great service from the start. Ordered the same food I had yesterday at a different restaurant and it is as if I had ordered two different items. This one was done right! If you want quality food ( both Cuban and Mexican) Come.

Food was excellent. Service was good as well and the food came out quickly. It's a little hard to find if you're using Waze, but worth it!
