This restaurant is off the beaten path but well known. The outside isn't much to look at but don't let that deter you. The food is wonderful and the portions are HUGE! This was quite possibly the cheapest meal we had while in the keys and possibly the best. Make it a point to find El Siboney on your next... More

Wow, talk about authentic Cuban food! This is the place in the heart of Key West. It seems every local we talked to recommended it and we were not disappointed! The food is fabulous, but go hungry because they give you a lot and go early because the place gets packed!!!

I had many recommend this cuban restaurant while we are in Key West. It didn't disappoint as we were seated they brought out great warm bread. Every item was great. Just a few tips. If you don't like onions you better tell them when you order. I love there onions but I know several people who don't. Several great drinks... More

One of Key West's nest values, portions large and prices very reasonable. Tucked away in a obscure and off the beaten track area that we had never been to but worth the find. Authentic We went for lunch and had the pork roast, rice and beans and of course Cuban bread. Very good. Can get crowded, we were there when... More

The place almost looks like a house from the outside, and it's not fancy outside, but oh man the food was phenomenal. If you like Cuban you have to come here. I couldn't believe how low the prices were. Don't miss this place. They also have takeout.

This restaurant was recommended by someone who frequents Key West. The restaurant was packed with a wait for a table which is usually a good sign. My husband had the yellow-tailed snapper which he loved. I had coconut shrimp which was pretty average. With that being said, I think their specialty is Cuban food so maybe I should have ordered...
