We visited the Winter Park location on Aloma Ave. Decent menu selection, plenty of choices from snacks to full dinners. Well presented cafeteria style lets you see all the selections. Friendly staff and reasonable prices make this a good choice for Cuban food in the Winter Park area. The Winter Park location have both inside and outside seating.

So upset that the hunters creek location closed. I've been to many south/Central American restaurants, like black bean burger and Tropico mofongo and everything else is tasteless compared to rice and beans. I always get the stewed chicken, and plantains. When I'm feeling daring I'll get more than one type of rice and black and red beans. So flavorful. Aren't... More

Flavor was great, delicious Dominican soup for very low price! Service was excellent. We were sitting outside because we had a puppy, waiter even brought out a plastic bowl for him. Will be back!!

Wonderful food, and the service.... Astonishing.... Sandwiches are all excellent, especially the "medianoche", try it with sweet fried potatoes. And... Endless happy hour for drinks

Surprise surprise you have to wait for fresh food...who knew? Ok, the food is great. Service is very good. It's simple as the name suggests. The hot bar is very good stuff that they are constantly updating straight from the kitchen. But I don't recommend ordering a meal if everyone else in your party is ordering from the hot now... More

Typical Spanish food....free refills... On Tuesdays you pay $11.99 for two meals... Which is a great deal for families.

A big step above the usual Cuban food. Generous portions, reasonably priced, friendly staff and quick service. There are two sides to the restaurant; one a cafeteria style: order at the counter, and the other side a nicely decorated sit down dining area. My husband and I will return again when in the area.

This was our first visit and we were not disappointed! There are two parts of the restaurant - a quick service and a sit down / dining room. We chose the sit down / dining room area. We had an awesome server, Dolores, who really is an asset to the restaurant! We started with Sampler Platter - you MUST try... More

Went with family for lunch on Sunday there were 5 of us. Place was not crowded. Waitress was friendly. Floor under the table had what looked like dried soda all over it. Was sticky. Took forever for the food to come out. Food was okay. Not great but okay.
