Good Cuban food. Big portions and reasonable price (I would even say low for Key West). What more can you ask? It's slightly out of the way from the strip, but definitely worth the 10 min walk if you want good inexpensive food.

I walked in for lunch 10/24/2017 and ate at the little lunch counter rather than the dining room. I'd been here once about 10 years ago and remembered it as being good and it is something of an institution in Key West. It's in a...More

I had planned on the pork with black beans and rice, typical Cuban food. After looking at their menu, I decided on the grilled Grouper. The Grouper was seasoned and grilled, it was so delicious. You need for sauces or anything to enhance the taste....More

Our group of 14 thoroughly enjoyed the food and service. The birthday celebration with singing and band was excellent too. I enjoyed the conch chowder and ropa vieja. Excellent!

This place is off the beaten path and a real gem. We were there for the Food Tour and a few from our group went back for lunch the next day.

El Siboney is recommended by locals. Described as best place for Cuban food. So we went there for dinner. Very busy place, good service and food, however I found my steak a little dry. Would go back to try something else.

We were told about this place by a friend and then the hotel clerk. The food was excellent and the service was as well. We both ordered a sandwich and rice and beans and it was too much food. The roast beef was our favorite.

It is tradition for us to go here every visit to Key West. The place is in a residential neighborhood. Although I've never been to Cuba, I believe this is real Cuban food. Delicious! The cuisine is way different than anywhere else and that is...More
