    This is a great spot for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Great food and service. The patio is a nice spot for date night or a girls brunch.

    Pork croquettas are amazing. Portions are lacking. Great atmosphere though.

  • Dëva H.

    Great little gem for dates and is very romantic. Get an outside table and sit by fireplace after dinner. Try the bourbon flight and you can't go wrong with any of the Cuban food or plantains

  • Jasmine M.

    The food is delicious! White and red sangria is great as well. You must try the avocado fries for the sauce.

    Jasmine Monroe · March 17, 2013
  • Arelys R.

    The white sangria is MUST! Their bocadito and empanadas are delicious. For the main dish go with El Puerco Primo or the Plantain Crusted Chicken. As for dessert, the banana fritters are super yummy!

    This place is awful.. and bad/slow service. As a Cuban from Cuba.. save your money and go to Felix at the Orange Circle..

  • Superb

    What a cute date spot! Love the mood created by all of the glowing candles. Try the ropa vieja or the spice-rubbed seared ahi, and pair it with a few glasses of sangria.

    Superb · July 17, 2012

    Plantain. Crusted. Chicken. Just do it.

    Bistecca de navarra - 8 oz grilled flat iron steak, topped with a Spanish red-wine reduction. Served with purple potatoe-goat cheese mashed and grilled artichoke = orgasm in mouth.
