Having no cuban restaurants back home I wanted to take advantage of it here while visiting Hollywood, FL. I had the shrimp enchilados with the black bean rice and steamed vegetables. Just the right amount of food. We also had a mixed appetizer, the Combinación Cubana that had Plantain Chips, Picadillo Empanadas, Yucca Croquettes, Ham Croquettes, and Tamal Cubano. The... More

We went with a party of 8 and thoroughly enjoyed it. Empanadas were amazing as an appetizer. Steak and fish were great. Best dish was chicken and rice dish that looked like lasagna. Very nice people.

The margaritas were delicious, appropriate strength of liquor in it and equally delicious. The food was great. Do get fried plantains. Service was excellent.

Walked over from the Diplomat - nice walk and well worth it. We had croquettes, Cuban sandwich, black beans and Moros. Everything was excellent! Great prices too. Hope to go again. At least I know where to go next time I stay here.

We decided to try Cuban food while visiting Hollywood. Nice restaurant with good service. Prices were reasonable. My fiance really liked the skirt steak. The empanadas needed some kind of sauce. My friend serves them with a homemade salsa. The yuca was kind of gummy. I like that it is a family owned business rather than a chain.

Pleasant staff. Tasty mojitos! Simple and authentic Cuban food. Bustling room filled with nice mix of locals and visitors. Could be a bit cleaner though...

Took my aunts here from New York because they wanted authentic Cuban food. We ordered their pork special which is good, and a Cuban sandwich which is average. The sangria in a pitcher is worth the price though. It's ok to try but definitely won't come back.
