Came recommended by a local and with good reason. The two of us enjoyed a combination plate, two entree (pork with onions and a skirt steak) and they were fantastic. The Mojitos hit the spot but they go down too easy!

We have dietary restrictions so we couldn't eat any of their delicious items on the menu but we didn't want to leave Florida without having some Cuban coffee. It did not disappoint! Friendly service as well.

I wanted to try Cuban food and this jewel did not disappoint. I had the Mahi Mahi with seafood and a Mango mojito. Hmmmm...the food was to die for. The fish was tender. The plantains were succulent and the Mango mojito was refreshing. The ambience...More
