Have a business lunch here. Service is on a high level. Dishes are very tasty and look splendid. Alive music helps to dive in a necessary atmosphere and mood. It was interesting to know about salsa evenings! I’ll definitely visit this bar once more again!...More

I eat well here but it was more like homemade food, not a special "cuban" revelation. The type of places that mimic to stand out but they honestly don't. Decent place, take it for sure if you don't have any other solid options.

The place has a very good 'atmosphere'...with good food. And good service...the band that played wasn't that good, but that's ok...
