My wife and I stumbled across the restaurant while walking to another tucked away restaurant near by. The smell of food approaching it was delicious. We almost didn't keep our reservation for our intended restaurant it smelled so yummy. Anyway we went back another night and all courses and both dishes we had were great. Price was reasonable and a... More

Only went for key lime pie,but apparently they have excellent Cuban food.Pie was different in that it had meringue topping which doesn't sound good but was really good!

This is by far one of the best Cuban restaurants we have eaten at. El Siboney came highly recommended by the Key West locals we asked. My wife and I both had the Siboney Steak with rice and beans, plantains and fresh Cuban bread , all of which were fantastic. The service and atmosphere were both great. Also you have... More

Simple decor with limited parking. Offers take out as well as wit down meals. Traditional Cuban food offerings, most dishes with rice and black beans and sweet plantains. Ropa vieja very good. The only disappointment was the key lime pie, which was probably purchased from outside. The Cuban coffee was exceptional.

We went here on our last night in Key West. The boliche was delicious! I also had their home-made sangria, which was tasty. This is a small place, but the prices are good and the food is great!!

My introduction to Cuban food could not have been a better one. The grouper filet was grilled just right, the plantains sweet and carmelized, the yellow rice tender and even better with black beans spooned over them. And the Key Lime pie? Out of this world---creamy, tangy sweet and topped with a true meringue. This restaurant came highly recommended to... More

We ordered the 'Siboney Steak' and 'Half Grilled Garlic Chicken', both recommended by the waitress and we were not disappointed. Great food, big portions and very inexpensive compared to most restaurants in Key West. Totally worth it even if it might be bit hard to find without map or gps.

El Siboney is our top recommendation for a restaurant in Key West. The food is reasonably priced and it gives you a true Cuban food experience. The pork here is outstanding and is recommended in the platter or sandwich version. The sangria is also very good and there is a decent selection of beers in bottles. Off the beaten path... More
