Reviewed 12 December 2017

We stopped in for a quick snack before going to the West Towns Chorus concert at the Tivoli. They offer a selection of soups specials, sandwiches, salads, empanadas, caribbean rice bowls, and main entrees. Their are also lunch combo specials.
Ordered the black bean soups and added some fresh onions on top. Enjoyed the pastelon which had some interesting flavors. of plantain.
You order at the counter and food is delivered to your table. It is a small cute place to eat with a view of the trains.

Food was delicious! Very intrigued by the sandwiches with plantain 'buns'. Definitely recommend. Will come again next time I'm in the area.

What a remarkable find tucked in a strip next to the DG train station and across the street from the Tivoli! We were really hungry so we ordered two main entrees...Ropa vieja (braised flank with onion, peppers and garlic in a tomato/white wine sauce) and Lechon
(slow roasted pork shoulder marinated for at least 48 hours). Each came with our choice of rice dishes and maduros (sweet fried yellow plantains). Deliciously divine! Ordered at the counter, our food was delivered quickly and with a smile!

Definitely one of the best restaurants in the area. Very friendly, family run, cozy place.
Pretty much all food from the menu is good but they have the best Cuban sandwiches hands down! Tastes best paired, of course, with side of Meduros and a side of tostones :)
Love their vegetarian jibarito as well.

Once you visit, you'll keep coming back!

Came here for lunch with a co-worker. We found the food to be hot, fresh and authentic Caribbean. Will definitely return.
