Our work team of 4 went here for dinner and really enjoyed our meals. Two went with the small plate options and two of us did the large plates. The ropa viejo and the puerco asado were both very good large plates and the sides...More

This place is a gem. I have been there for brunch, lunch and dinner and each time it was a fantastic experience. Get the mussels and sangria and you won’t be disappointed.

We've eaten lunch here a few times and the food is great every time. Authentic Cuban food. Great service. Small, intimate place. Convenient location on Main Street near Moody Street. One of our favorites.

I love this boutique restaurant right in the heart of Waltham. The food is great and the venue is cozy and chic. Be sure to make a reservation, even for lunch, they are usually packed solid.

One of the very few restaurants in the Boston area offering authentic Cuban cuisine. For lunch, a great selection of sandwiches, soups and salads. At dinnertime with the most succulent Cuban meals!
