Hands down may be the best roasted Cuban pork i have had. Tostones were fantastic and they make great Cuban style mojitos!

We have been to KW 15 times and seek out the best Cuban food we can find. If you want a real home cooked, authentic cuban meal, this is the place. We are repeat customers. Hidden down a little alley, it's a well kept secret that I probably shouldn't share. While all the other restaurants on Duval had a waiting... More

My friend and I were walking down Duval Street when we noticed this tiny restaurants yellow awning sticking out from this alleyway. We decided to take a look since we were both curious, and hungry. We walk around a man selling Cuban cigars in the alleyway and soon come into the dining area of an outdoor restaurant. Juan Loves Lucy... More

Had a great dinner here, loved the vaca frita and house made sangria! Wait staff very friendly and prompt. Taking home a bottle of Castro's Breath hot sauce (spicy but not too hot with a long finish!). Don't walk past this hidden gem off Duval!

we went to this restaurant on St Patrick day.It looked romantic from the street so we decided to try.Service was done by a very rude person.Food was to spiced.Pork meat greasy.We were not even served water.At the end an 18% gratuity was added to our check.For us this was a nonsense for such a bad service.

We found the restaurant coincidentally- it's in the back within a patio at duval street! We were the only ones at that time and didnt know what to expect. They served very good mojito as well as typical "latin/cuban" food - black beans, rice, yuca, platanos with different kinds of meat! We had beef stew as well as the catch... More

We were drawn down a mysterious alley to this intimate place with rough hewn logs and a cabana type atmosphere. We were the only ones there for awhile, but service seemed to be somewhat of an imposition, although it was an odd time of the afternoon. We ordered beers and the combination appetizer. The beers were deliciously cold and the... More

While in Key West if you you're tired of the more commercial "front row" eateries, try this little out of the way (literally back ally) joint that has a limited but delicious selections from South of the Border, and I mean 90 miles to the South. Also, if you just drop in for a cool drink don't leave without trying... More

Average Cuban food. I ordered a glass of wine and it was a huge full glass, but was warm. The waitress took it off our bill when she asked why I didn't drink it and I told her. Restaurant was outdoors in back area of shops. Was clean and service was good, but food wasn't great. It was highly recommended... More
