We had heard this is a must-stop when visiting Little Havana, and it did not disappoint. Very casual setting, essentially a diner. The fritas were delicious, and you get them with or without onions. Servers were super friendly and the prices are reasonable. No wonder...it’s kind of a local institution — really good all the way around.More

What a wonderful find! Locally owned Cuban diner. Sat at the bar which was nice. Feel like a homey environment. Everyone seemed to know everyone. I had the ham croquettes which were fabulous! The original Frita was wonderful and the coconut flan which was perfect....10 out of 10 recommend this place!More

I loved this restaurant. Friendly, attentive waiter and typical Cuban food. We had several dishes to share and I can say that they were all to my taste. I will definitely return there on my next trip to Miami.

The classic Cuban Frita was amazing, probably the best breakfast we had in Miami! The flavours were superb, very juicy patty and the mojo sauce was just perfect! So good we came back twice!

We dined here on a recommendation from locals. The mango smoothie was delicious. The croquettes were yummy as was the empanada. My kids were not fans of the Cuban burger and my husband and I felt it was so so. I had the plantain version....Worth a try for sure. Clean restaurant and very friendly staff. The food was just not our jam.More

Stopped by here as it had been recommended to us. Travelled to Miami from the UK and this place feels like something out of a movie! (I felt like Tony Montana was going to walk through the door) Authentic Cuban food which is definitely worth...a try. Seems like a hotspot for local people too. Looked like a family run business. We tried the Cuban frita burgers and also the sweetcorn fritas which were both delicious.More

I watched the Netflix documental about StreetFood and this place appeared. It was fantastic, I ordered fried shrimps, Frita suprema with the sweet plantains separated, and i dont remember the bane of the other frita.

After reading several reviews on TripAdvisor, we decided to go there. It was excellent. The food was delicious. We had the Freitas. The servers were gracious. As an added delight we were there when the World Cup final was being shown on the tv. It...was fun and exciting. Would recommend it.More

Great food and service! My wife and I got here at about 2 pm and it was full. A kind gentleman shifted to give us room at the counter. Waited a while and we were asked for our orders. Ordered the midnight sandwich, tostenos (banana...fritters) and a Fritas with egg. The food is hearty and very tasty. I highly recommend anyone who wants to try Cuban food to visit this place.More
