After my friend told me how good this place was, I needed to go since I love Cuban food. I mean, I have been to Cuba 5 times and have visited so many Cuban restaurants in NYC. The service was great but the food was far from being great. The waiter, who was the bartender, was amazing, her drinks, mojitos... More

We loved this little place... It was so cool, cozy. The food was amazing but the live salsa music was the high light. Like I said, the food was amazing, the mood and service was great....

Very authentic Cuban Cuisine served by a well trained staff. Music with a live duo in the background and great drinks make this place perfect for a true Cuban culinary night out. We had a group of 6 so we were able to share many delicious plates from the appetizers through dessert. Really nice! Thank you.

It was Puerto Rican Day Weekend, but we didn't realize there would tons of events occurring right there in Spanish Harlem. We thought the big parade in a different part of the city was it. Silly us. So we were an hour late just getting around streets closings. We called to say we were delayed. The hostess was understanding and... More

Glad I read the reviews. Would have not considered it. We knew it would be loud, so took the advice to sit in the back room. We arrived at 7 and the music started about 7:30. When the music started we could hear it just fine, but until then we had a peaceful meal. The paella was...a lot...could have fed... More

Not only is the atmosphere inviting and friendly, the food is excellent. On the Friday night we ate there, after dinner the music began and one definitely feels like it could really be Cuba.
