This place has good Cuban food. If you like Cuban food, you will like this place. I think my bill with tip was about $20 but worth it.

Grew up in Tampa eating Cuban/Spanish cuisine. We made a lot of it a home too. I always like finding the Cuban restaurants and I wasn't disappointed. The Sangria was great as was the food. My daughter had the Lechon Asado and it was delicious....More

I've had really good Cuban food and this place was horrible. I only tried them once and might try them again bc I love Cuban food, especially in Miami. I'll see how it is my next visit.

Carmen's is an excellent place! Last time I was there I had the camarones criollo (shrimp in a spicy sauce). It was the freshest shrimp I've had in a while--absolutely delicious. I've also tried the ropa vieja and various pork dishes. The coffee is very...More
