    Service sucks. Yuca is tasty but the banana guava ketchup is missing the bananas&guava. Had to ask for utensils for our salad. Why do I need to go to the bar to get h2o? Because our server was M.I.A.

    Skip the calamari...it's over cooked. Skip the jerk chicken sandwich...I'm not even sure what that was. Stick to the cuban sandwich if you have to go here. The waitstaff have room for improvement.

    Fun place, but dirty bathrooms! Employees should not drink while working and bartenders need to work faster and be more attentive. Don't eat while you work!
