Plenty of Cuban inspired food for a fair price. Ordered meatballs and mashed potatoes. I didn't get the fried bananas as a side dish and I immediately regretted that decision when I saw my friend's plate.

My husband and I recently visited El Siboney again and both had the shrimp with yellow rice and black beans. This is a great value on the island and delicious Cuban style food. We love eating here because there are so many nationalities and languages represented, but everyone is there for terrific Cuban food. The staff is friendly and moves... More

Outstanding Cuban food. No waiting but don't be fooled. Friendly efficient staff. Restaurant is hidden a neighborhood so don't panic. It's worth it.

The gift store employee at the Dry Tortugas recommended this restaurant and it was so authentic and delicious. There was a small wait, but the staff was super efficient in turning tables. We had the Vaca Frita (YUM!) and the pork with tamal. Kids had cuban sandwiches. I would go back again and again. The sangria was great too!

My wife and I always search out local restaurants when we travel, and stay away from the "chains" whenever possible. El Siboney is a family owned place serving really good Cuban food along with other choices for those who prefer burgers and the like. Prices are very reasonable, as evidenced that lots of locals eat here. We ate there two... More

Very busy. Plan on waiting outside during peak hours. True authentic cuban food at very modest prices. No fancy atmosphere, plastic cups, but great food.

Get here by 5:30pm, or be ready to wait in line, BUT it is so worth the wait. Food and service are excellent. Hidden away from Duvall street, this joint is a great find

I asked the waitress what to eat, so she took care me. Yellow Rice, Black beans, Plantains and steak. Fabulous. Large portion, tasted like really good home cooking. Something you would happily go back again and again for. The restaurant is simple, and the staff helpful. It was packed, which is always a good sign. Not only the quality of... More
