    Get the Cubano with a side of plantains. Don't order anything else as this is a colossal amount of food for one person. There's seating out back. Be sure to take some of that habanero sauce with you.

    Amazing place - the space is fun! Get their fish taco or Cuban sandwich, then wash this down with some guacamole

    Tacos were good. Papito sandwich is one of the most unique combination of flavors I’ve experienced, highly recommend it. And you can’t go wrong with black beans and fried plantains

    Try every taco. Fish taco and carne asada tacos are the best. Don't forget to get the really fresh-tasting guacamole! Recommend sitting in the rear outdoor patio.

    What a Mexican restaurant in Cuba might feel like. Maybe the East Bay's best fish taco. Killer gauc. Can't wait to come back for the pressed sandwiches and plantains.

    Super hipster, don’t go expecting anything authentic. The flavor was great. I tried one of every taco and don’t think I can pick a favorite but the tofu was cooked perfectly for the tofu tacos.

    This place serves up an outstanding cubano sandwich. Tender meat, pressed nicely and spot on, authentic flavors.

    Fish tacos, agua frescas, fried yuca, and the cubano sandwich were all fantastic. Order at the front register (using menus in a filling thing on the wall).

    Amazing vegetarian/vegan tacos. Two slices of flavorful fried tofu topped with slaw, a medium-spicy salsa, and crema, if you want it non-vegan

    Just order the Fish tacos, the rest of them are just normal. Guac and chips are great. Very cheap. Deserves the wait for a regular Tuesday.

    Step inside - get transported to a vibrant and exciting paradise. Everything just POPS with color and the staff rocks, so tip excessively. Get extra salsa!

    Best Carnde Asadas! It has a little heat to it. Strawberry line fruit juice is phenomonal ! Black beans is so flavored!

    They can do a veggie version of the torta that come with plantains. But don't even think about it until you've tried the tacos first.

    They have the most delicious sangria here. It has, I think, a subtle honey flavor.
