The upstairs is nice and the ocean view is amazing. The staff is friendly. The food was delicious. The first impression when you come up to the place is shady and somewhat disappointing.

My wife and I stopped in for as light dinner, we had had a large lunch and wanted only sandwiches. We were here on 2/5/14 and were the only customers. The hamburger was more like meatloaf and the cuban sandwich was mostly pork. If this is true Cuban cusine, then everyone in Miami has it wrong. Was ok, but there... More

Well, after walking directly onto their back deck (which is literally on the water), the waitress greeted me with a menu and a warm smile. After scanning the menu for a few minutes and realizing that the offerings were much like many other restaurants in the... More

The service was very slow and the poor waitress who was alone, kept forgetting to bring our drinks. The food was a huge disappointment. I ordered... More

Great location, right on the water, very attentive owners. Cuban food but also local flavors. Very clean. Open late. Food will take a while because they make from scratch the moment you order. Love! Will be back today for breakfast too.
