If you're around the Florida Mall area this little family owned Cuban Restaurant is fantastic. The Cuban Sandwich with french fries is just delicious. The buffet is good too!!!! The customer service is great too!!! Definitely I am coming back soon.

A colleague and I came here after Havana was recommended to us. I had a Cubana and my colleague a Ropa Vieja. She polished hers off but my Cubana was a little greasy and I finished only half of it. I've given Havana a three since we seemed to have one very good meal and one not so good. I'll... More

We came here back in 2013 and had to find it again. It was a restaurant that offers "fast food" with really yummy flavor. you can choose different options for a full meal. Our 7 yr old loved the flavors too

We arrived about 15 minutes before they closed and they were more than happy to serve us. Authentic atmosphere and the service was fantastic. The server offered suggestions and we took them and were so glad we did. Everything we had was amazing!! Definitely a place I will return to if I go back to Orlando.

Waitress Lili was extremely friendly what she recommended was just the best. Lili and her manager (or owner, not sure) played with my 2 year old boy and made me feel at home. Food was the best and service as well, I just wish I live closer but this is what makes a person want to go back to a... More

This is my to go restaurant when I'm shopping at Florida mall since is across the street. Really good Cuban food, big portions, big bakery, owner is always there so you get really good service. So good they have expanded their business. Try it.

(Our server said I'd get a free dessert for a review. However, I'm writing this now that I'm back home almost a thousand miles away so you bet I'm not angling for a freebie.) This is just the 2nd Cuban restaurant I've been to so I can't say anything about authenticity. However, as far as taste goes, the food here... More
