The extensive rum selection and cocktails are the highlight, accompanied by excellent, often spicy cuisine. Get the camarones al majo with a Rum Manhattan. Definitely request the latter served up.
Good food, ambience and service. Enjoyed it. Less vegetarian dishes but enough for a group of 4. Little hard to locate as the name of the restaurant is only on a little street sign like board.
Camarones Con Mojo(appetizer) is tangy and very good. For entree the Masitas I liked, coconut crusted snapper was sweet and the mashed potato was very buttery.
The ropa vieja is amazing. Great rum cocktails. Sit at the bar area with the same menu if you don't have reservations.
Try the Cuban Cheesesteak - #kvpinmybelly - Lunch in #PaloAlto. I fell in love with tangy sofrito sauce over tri-tip, peppers and pepper-spiced cheese.
Still cranking out great food & drinks for over 10'years now. Try the Hemmingway with grapefruit (not on the menu) and the empanadas :)
Didn't order food myself, but reviews from my friends are positive. Dark and Stormy drink is great. Love the place and will go back for more.
Mojito all the way! My favorites here also include the empanadas, ropa vieja (+plantains!), and key lime tart. And another mojito.
Rum-based cocktails are the bar stars here, along with braised meat & house-made chorizo, a signature ingredient in the paella.
The bar is a cool place to hang out - the signature cocktails are unique and it's quite easy to get in without a reservation.
The Coconut snapper is to die for. Excellent food and atmosphere. But easy to miss as there are no visible signs outside
Quite delicious. Could have made a meal of the appetizers: marinated olives and cheese were so good. Empanadas tasty.
Eating at the bar is just as good and usually seats open quick. Also, probably the best way to ensure good service, too.
Careful not to wild out on the bread. The sauce is addictive and the keep bringing it. Also, get the plantain chips.
If undecided ask the staff. They know all the dishes and cocktails and will recommend you something interesting!
Good snapper and mahi-mahi, very solid selection of rums. Plenty of vegetarian options, too.
Warning: they charge for refills of soda. About $2.50 per soda. (Which would be fine... if they tell you that they charge.)
Try the mojito with Bacardi limon and plenty of fresh mint, or anything from the rum list.
Great paella.serves two people. 7 more bucks for three
If the sangria with berries, blood orange & Granny Smith apples is available, get it
Really bad Cuban food. Extremely spicy. Would not recommend if you're looking for authentic Cuban food
Oh man the Masitas dish is awesome. So good. Caramelized onions to boot, FTW!
Try the Chowder. It's got an excellent spice and it's not too heavy.
Get the fried yucca, and save room for the Key Lime Tart.
Love the key lime pie martini and the masitas are delish
Everything here is fantastic. Order whatever and get a mojito with it.
Sangria is great and all the food I've tried has been good
The appetizer with shrimp is deliriously delicious. Delieve me.
The vegetarian black bean cakes are great! Get them with a mojito.
Ummmmm if you don't order the rum punch, you're dead to me. It is epic. Epic! So perfectly strong. Do it
Be sure to make a reservation; place gets hella packed.
Paella De La Bodeguita is the must have!
The croquettes and sangria make for a very happy happy hour (sans the discount)
Not a lot of vegetarian choices or gluten free choices.
I recommend mojotos, ceviche and the empanadas. Toucan go wrong
Try the Mojito - Not too sweet :). Delicious!
Mojitos, empanadas, and chili dipping sauce - everything here is good!
Chimay on draught, and the mojitos are unbelievable.
Humidor in the back, and great mojitos and Cuba Libres.
Buy a drink at the bar then go to the Cigar Lounge in back
Great arroz con pollo. Try the platoons mazurka!
Arroz ala Cubana with ground lamb! Rocks!
Try the Coconut crusted Red Snapper. To die for!
FYI...They have Vegetarian options AND vegan options.
Bistec de palomilla at lunch is to die for!
The paella is not as good as I expected.
Braised seafood rice and lamb chop!
Order the Nacional #1. You won't regret it!
Great place with the cigar lounge, what more would you want
