The outdoor bar is perfect for mojitos and sunset! Such a great atmosphere with Caribe music and dancing in the courtyard.

The food was spectacular. Plenty of selections and the servings were huge. You may want to consider sharing. Loved the locals - chickens and rooster. Waiter was very informative and attentive. If you want excellent Cuban food go to Pepe's.

Not too expensive, personnel is medium friendly. Food is okay but not more then okay. You can find definitely better places in the West Key. Very close to the pier.
