We stopped in for lunch while walking in the area and really enjoyed it. The food was tasty with very fresh ingredients and the price was reasonable.

i have ate in Little Havana in Miami and this place was just as good as any where I have ate Cuban food. Large portions, distinctive flavor, great service, and reasonable prices make this the place that you want to try. You will not be disappointed !

Heard of this place on a recommendation from the hotel where we stayed. turned out to be a great suggestion on a Saturday night as there was live cuban music which added a great flair to an already excellent evening.

Our server, Paolo, did a wonderful job of walking us through our first Cuban dining experience, as well as the right of passage that is writing your name on the walls or ceiling in the restaurant.

btw, you must try one of their signature mojitos. hmmm, hmmm, good!

We were recommended this Cuban restaurant on our arrival at Hotel Grano de Oro (see separate review) for a place to go for lunch, with a great atmosphere and popular with the locals.
Staff were very friendly and the service was good. The food was lovely, especially the mixed fish ceviche and the home made guacamole.
Mohitos were great and there was a band playing throughout which added to the occasion.
Would return if in San Jose again.

If you like authentic Cuban Food and Music this is the place! The music is excellent with people dancing all night long. The mohitos are smooth and tasty. I recommend their Shrimp, cheese taco special of the house. All the food is fresh plus the bar tenders and waitresses are excellent to make your experience even better. I look forward to coming back soon.
