This is a Spanish cuban food restaurant serving a huge plate of delicious food. They play music as you eat. You can choose outdoor seating or sit inside. Food, service and vibe is always great!

We enjoyed our dinner here and our waiter Andy was extremely attentive. We started with plantain chips and mojo sauce, which I've had at Estefan's Miami restaurant. It's highly addictive - you could eat it all night! They make a few flavored mojitos, which were...More
