    The Best Cafe con Leche you will find

    Floriditas food is OK. It is not the best or the worst. If you are in the mood for some spanish food and cant get to Malecon then i suppose you can stop here. I dont reccomend it as your first choice though. The service is good. The atmosphere is nice. The taste and quality of the not the best, its as if something is missing. All that said their cafe con leche is the best I have ever had.

    Value in volume

    The old timers know to order off of the daily special, which are invariably yummy and economical. In terms of the food itself - this place is brimming with volume, but with how little they charge, the food is not always 5 star. However, I think their soups are fantastic. With the amount of food you get, you are set for 2 meals with a Special dishes that runs way < $10. By the way, I heard horror stories of some very hard pancakes so stay away from them. PS: they also have very delicious oatmeals, not at all like the Quaker type.

    I've never really been to a Cuban restaurant that I didn't like but this was the first! I went there for take out. I ordered the Pollo Floridata with white rice and black beans. The chicken was dry and the black beans were just okay. I also order the Croquetas De Pollo but they gave me the Croquetas De Jamon. I didn't find out until I was home and bit into it. I ended up having to throw it out because I don't eat pork. The service was slow and the food was overpriced.

    Uptowns little secret.

    I have been going for 12years and food is great. You can order the lunch special at anytime of the day. The food is dominican and owned by dominicans. The closest it comes to cuban food is a cuban hero. The help are really nice but they do deal with language barrier. The place has a strong local following but soon it will change since more money and gringos are move in. So expect higher prices and smaller portions.

    What a surprise

    Went on a Saturday and the atmosphere is like a diner. The service is a bit slow but so what, you are there to eat not to run a marathon. The food is excellent. I ordered shrimp and yellow rice and had to take half of it home. Talk about "Bang for your buck", this is it. Will definitely return. Try the mojitos, they sure are good

    Great Food, Poor Service :(

    I love this place. Like the previous reviewer, I also get the beef stew and it is AMAZING! Not to mention the fact that it comes on a plate the size of texas. Unfortunately, however, the service always seems to be a little off. On a recent outing, we went during a fairly unbusy night and had an annoying service experience. Our waitress was nice, but whenshe brought my dish out she told my boyfriend his dish was unavailable and then walked away without giving him a chance to order something else. She also seemed to be in such a rush that she gave us double of things we only wanted 1 of. Worse, was listening to people in neighboring tables complain about her too. We asked for our left over food to-go and when I opened the containers up the next day, I discovered that she actually gave us someone else's food.

    Absolutely Outstanding!!

    I went here entirely because I was in the mood for Cuban food and none of my friends knew anything about Cuban cuisine so I thought I would introduce them, and all I have to say is WOW! Our service was very slow but it didnt really bother us because we got plenty of time to wallow in our post-meal splendor. I ordered th Carne Guisada (a traditional cuban beef stew) and it was probably the best Ive ever had it. A friend of mine had the Ropa Vieja which was also outstanding. I suggest the Pork Chop as well. If you want something lighter the Cuban Tamales off of their specials menu are great. Im a college student and Im excited to know that I can find affordable and authentic Cuban food not to far from campus. I will definately be back very soon.
