Party of 8. Had reservations. Had to wait to be seated about 15 minutes. Good service after that wait. Clean. Fair prices. Had chicken sandwiches. Shrimp dish, paella ( 5 star and enough food for four). Cheese and several other appetizers. Mojitos are great. Leo runs a great business. Been there several times. He always stops to talk and makes... More

We went to this restaurant in it new location on a slow week night. The decor was impressive and the service was good. The waiter was playful and helpful. We got a number of tapas. The best were the empanadas, meatballs, and the patatas brava. The sangria was a better choice than the Mojito, which was harsh. We definitely will... More

Everything was so good, but we had awkward cultural (i guess) exchanges. When or what we were ordering. Everything came out fine. Just weird getting there. Music started at 7, nice atmosphere​.

This places has the perfect amount of tapas! There is enough that you feel full but not so much that you feel like you just had another thanksgiving dinner. I prefer the dining in the "patio" it's all around a beautiful place.

Second trip to this fine place. Be sure to get a picture of mojito's. Try some appetizers. We have tried 8 different ones on two trips. Excellent pre meal snacks. Had the Cuban sandwich, wife had a chicken on special bun and beef kabobs. Wow. All were excellently prepared. Great atmosphere. Good prices. Super service. A special plan to dine... More

As a International/Cuban Chief and Cuban Restaurant owner, from Miami, I am qualified to say that this restaurant is not preparing authentic Cuban food correctly. We found a bone piece in the Spanish tapas. Overly salted food items. Over priced, small portions. The waitress asked if everything was good, I explained I was Cuban/American/Chef of Cuban restaurant w/30 yrs. of... More

This has been one of my favorite local restaurants for a number of years. The food is very good, the servers are gracious, and the value is very good. If you're looking for a trial menu, I suggest queso fundito as an appetizer, a Media Noche sandwich, and a mojito. Just make sure that you have time to digest the... More

Wait staff was pleasant and attentive. The food was kinda bland with no real flavor. Maybe we ordered the wrong items. Will not be returning.

Us being Cubans, my husband and I had been thinking about visiting this restaurant for a while. The food was very tasty and they had vegetarians options as well, which I didn't think they had, so that was a good surprise. What we liked the most was how attentive our waitress was. I don't remember her name very well, I... More
