Hailed by our friends as an Orlando icon, we came for dinner on an uncrowded Thursday night. The service was friendly and fast. All meals were well prepared, fresh and tasty. Sangria was good.

We dropped into this Cuban restaurant for a quick lunch. We were searching for quick, delicious, and not-another-chain. We were not disappointed!! The service was friendly & efficient; the restaurant, clean & appealing. But, wow - the food!! We ordered the chicken sandwich & the Midnight (Cuban, with different bread) sandwich specials. I give both sandwiches my highest rating: Crave!... More
