I am a Cuban living in Miami and eat Cuban food everyday. I also travel often for work and have never had better Cuban food than the food I had at this restaurant in Lafayette, Louisiana! What a surprize. It felt like I was eating home cooked Cuban food my aunt Miriam made when I was a kid. Thank you... More

Used Trip Advisor to locate this place. Really enjoyed to grilled Pork sandwich. Quite tasty and came with chicken noodle soup. Probably would have stayed and had drinks but left when presented with a check. Would definitely go back.

I do not have an opportunity to eat much Cuban food but when I have the chance I always enjoy it. This is a convenient small restaurant with friendly staff and good food at reasonable prices. I keep going back and Imenjoynit every time. Definitely recommended.

This was my first taste of Cuban food. It was pretty good. I had mashed potatoes and meat pies. I really liked the meat pies, wish I'd tried the sandwich. My friend enjoyed hers and that's what they're famous for. Free soup for all.

There are several other reviews but this place is just plain awesome. Small family owned and excellent food. There is a variety of choices and a small bar. Food is excellent and it is medium priced. You definitely need to check this place out. Two thumbs up!!

Plantains were great. I had the fried chicken and soup. My wife had the Cuban Sandwich which she loved. We plan to go back to this small quaint restaurant.

We decided to try this place today. I'm new to Cuban food so we all tried something different and sampled off each other. I tell you, the food was amazing and the service was excellent.

I had such high hopes for this restaurant but was sadly disappointed. Bland food and dry fish. Had a bite of a Cuban sandwich and it was good. Service was ridiculously slow with only 1 waiter and 1 waitress for the whole restaurant. Even had to stop one of them to take the bill. Tip is already added to every... More

We had a party of 7 ranging in age from 20-82. The service was good as always, the atmosphere was excellent. Last night was the first time in many, many, visits over several years that I would say the food was not outstanding. I love Cuban food and I would rate this as one of the better Cuban restaurants in... More
