    Exquisito is conveniently located across the street from Azucar Ice Cream Company, a perfect afternoon involving tostones at Exquisito and then sweet plantain ice cream at Azucar.

    Where you can taste the purest Cuban coffee at it's best. Highly recommended. It's located in Little Havana along the highway. You don't want to miss their cuban coffee.

    Genuinely great place, super friendly and local, a real gem within little Havana. Try the Cubano. I look back on this place with fond memories.

    We had the pork and skirt steak all really good with sides of beans and rice, plantain and yukka . Worth a visit - better than expected!

    If you come on a Tuesday, be sure to try the Tamal special. It's in soup form which is a little different from how most people eat them, but it is just as delicious.

    later in the day or evening, order the vaca frita, and ask for a side of malanga, a type of root vegetable, served with mojo, a tangy uber-garlicky sauce.

    The food here was Exquise ! 👌🏻 The meat was dry but it's a matter of taste so not judging it. I would definitely recommend !

    We tried the medianoche sandwich which was good, and some appetizers with minced meat that were not very tasty. Needed to add lots of salt & pepper to make it interesting.

    They have an award-winning breakfast but don’t let that make you overlook their “tostones”, “crema de malanga” or “bistec de palomilla”.

    I was told this was a typical cuban place. It's simple but I don't think I ordered the right things, I need to go back. Churros were good

    We have tried Vaca Frita ($10.50) and Lechon Asado (9.95). Meat was not very good – dried and not very tasty. The only thing we enjoyed was Maduros. I do not recommend the restaurant.

    Don't order skirt steak it's a weird cut of meat. Very tough and has no flavor. It not really authentic Cuban food, more of a tourist trap. If you don't speak Spanish you won't get good service.

    The waitress was rude and told us that unless we eat there, we cannot have only coffee. Take it to go or go somewhere else. The place was empty at the time.
