    Ropa vieja was a disappointing dish. Don't get it unless you like a scoop of meat with about 3 cups of white rice.

    Authentic Cuban cuisine. The "Fidel" Cuban sandwich was excellent. Music is a bit loud for my liking, but it does match the atmosphere. Visited on a whim and it was worth it.

    DO NOT order the Chocolate Cake! For the price, it's a definite rip-off! They should be ashamed!

    Try their mojito. It's awesome. Ask to add strawberry puree, it's even better.

    Nothing very Cuban about it, unless Cuban food is supposed to be bland and boring.

    The "Hostess", Barbara, is an rude insufferable bitch an for the life of me I can't imagine why the owner wants her to be the very first person his patrons have contact with.

    Don't be in a hurry here. Slowest service in town. It took over an hour to eat when the restaurant was 1/4 full.

    Amazing food, but the place always feels understaffed. Servers are polite but frazzled. Order a simple drink if you want it quickly.

    Drinks were decent, but the service was pretty bad. Starting the introduction by outlining all of the things on the menu you don't have anymore doesn't leave a great impression.

    The Cuban sandwich is a variation on a popular classic in owner Mary Morabito's hometown of Tampa: roast pork, ham, salami, Swiss cheese, pickles, mustard and mayo on grill-pressed Cuban bread. Read more

    Food is great but the music is so loud you cant hear yourself think. When asking them to turn it down they say they cant. Wait staff look like they dont want to be here
