    The chicken soup is my favourite, fresh warming broth with big pieces of chicken on the bone

    Chicken soup is to die for! Roast pork, fried plantain, Cubano sandwiches all very good. I over ordered though, portions are very big. Good value too

    The quintessential Cubano sandwich comes loaded with roast pork, sliced ham, Swiss cheese, marinade sauce, shredded lettuce, white onion, tomatoes, pickles, mayonnaise and mustard.
