    Big Disappointment

    I hate to be the contrarian, but our experience was entirely different from others here. A friend and I like Cuban food and didn't want to spend much, so this seemed like a good bet. It was a weeknight and there were fewer than 10 patrons in the place, and it had a nice outdoor patio. I ordered the Ropa Vieja after the waitress reeled off a list of specials and talked us into some appetizers (beef empanadas) that weren't very beefy. They got my friend's order wrong and brought him the Vieja dish too, but he said never mind. This dish was served with a scoop of rice and small cup of beans, nothing special, but the Vieja tasted not only unimpressive but strange to both of us. We were more interested in conversation than feasting, so tried to make the best of it, but the overzealous staff kept interrupting, asking how everything was, could they get us some more this, that, etc. By the time we got the bill with its "extras," we realized we could have eaten elsewhere and had a much better meal for the same price or much more cheaply. Won't be going back soon.

    Best combination of both worlds....

    I was there for dinner last tuesday, great vibe, they had a Salsa night and a special prix fixe where you could get Arroz con pollo and a beer for $15, not bad at all, all my friends enjoy it, maybe the music was a bit loud but over all i felt like in Cuba.....

    This place has it all for cuban food lovers. Great atmosphere, great service and even better food! Can't wait to come back on salsa night. One of the best Cuban restaurants I've ever been too in the city.

    Great Food at a Great Price

    I've been here a couple of times, for dinner and brunch. The service is great, the food is tasty and reasonably priced, it's child-friendly, and the space is great. I love that the bar stools are drums. My kids can't get enough of the yuca fries. I'm partial to the spicy shrimp entree and the little cheesy bread nuggets. Yum. The mojitos are great, too.

    Great New Cuban place!

    Just ate there last night and had such a positive experience! The cocktails were all delicious, in particular the orange basil mojito, even though a couple of them were a bit weak in the alcohol department. That hiccup aside, the space is fantastic and the food was tasty and nicely priced. Standouts were the Piccadillo Habana, the Shrimp and Salmon Cevices, and the calamari. Even better was the passionfruit panna cotta. Will definitely be back!
