“Fantastic”

A great cuban restaurant. If you only speak english you will be in the minority. This place attracts cuban speakers. The food is plentiful, fresh, and the best cuban you will find on the west coast. I would recommend the pork either in a sandwich or as a main entree. My wife stated the black beans and rice were the best she ever had. Portions are large. Cuban bread is exactly as it should be crusty and light.

This is another great Cuban restaurant. I've found that Cuban places are best known for breakfast ... Three eggs, bacon, toast and coffee for under $6 ... make the coffee "cafe con leche"

hours are 07:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Mon thru Fri ... not open on weekends
take-out orders by phone 239-561-1737

We went there twice and found them closed. First time was our fault for not realizing they are closed on Sundays, but the second time we went in the middle of posted open hours. We were looking forward to trying this restaurant, but are not going to drive 30 minutes to chance them being closed again.

We have been going here through a couple of name changes. The food has remained very good as well as the service. Not a big menu, but we go especially when they have specials we like (keep a menu home). This is a very small place that does a good take out business too.

Finally got around to trying this great little place just around the corner from the house.
They are on Metro, and only open until 4:00 M-F. But if you like Cuban food and have a free lunch break, get your buns over there.
My wife had the Media Noche (a Cuban Sandwich on sweet bread), and I had Vacas Fritas with sweet plantains and black beans. They were both excellent and we had to push ourselves to finish them.
The service was also first rate.
We plan on making this a once a week lunch place.
