First thing you should say when you are here is 'Can I get a mojito, please?'
The paella is not as good as I expected.
Rum, chimay, mastitas
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.
Rum-based cocktails are the bar stars here, along with braised meat & house-made chorizo, a signature ingredient in the paella.
Fantastic food and cigar bar.
If undecided ask the staff. They know all the dishes and cocktails and will recommend you something interesting!
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.
Love the key lime pie martini and the masitas are delish
Sangria is great and all the food I've tried has been good
I love this place! The food is absolutely amazing. Lunch or dinner, they're great! The place is clean and lively! The atmosphere is great, warm welcoming and almost makes me forget I'm in Palo Alto!
Good snapper and mahi-mahi, very solid selection of rums. Plenty of vegetarian options, too.
The ropa vieja is amazing. Great rum cocktails. Sit at the bar area with the same menu if you don't have reservations.
House Paella is good spicy.
Paella De La Bodeguita is the must have!
Mmmm, that's all I want to say!
Pulled pork sandwich and sweet plantains
The croquettes and sangria make for a very happy happy hour (sans the discount)
The appetizer with shrimp is deliriously delicious. Delieve me.
Great paella.serves two people. 7 more bucks for three
Such a lovely place
Really bad Cuban food. Extremely spicy. Would not recommend if you're looking for authentic Cuban food
Buy a drink at the bar then go to the Cigar Lounge in back
Braised seafood rice and lamb chop!
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.
Mojito all the way! My favorites here also include the empanadas, ropa vieja (+plantains!), and key lime tart. And another mojito.
The Coconut snapper is to die for. Excellent food and atmosphere. But easy to miss as there are no visible signs outside
Get the shrimp ceviche!
Come for the food, stay for the cigars!
Warning: they charge for refills of soda. About $2.50 per soda. (Which would be fine... if they tell you that they charge.)
Order the Nacional #1. You won't regret it!
Try the Cuban Cheesesteak - #kvpinmybelly - Lunch in #PaloAlto. I fell in love with tangy sofrito sauce over tri-tip, peppers and pepper-spiced cheese.
Bistec de palomilla at lunch is to die for!
Try the Coconut crusted Red Snapper. To die for!
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.
Best Cuban place in the Palo Alto area!
Cigar bar swag!!!
Arroz ala Cubana with ground lamb! Rocks!
Really amazing food and drinks!
Get the Paella! You won't regret it!
Get the key lime tart for dessert.
Humidor in the back, and great mojitos and Cuba Libres.
Mojitos, empanadas, and chili dipping sauce - everything here is good!
They don't take ANY foreign id!! Go elsewhere...
Try the mojito with Bacardi limon and plenty of fresh mint, or anything from the rum list.
Try the Ceviche
Ropa Vieja FTW so yummy!
Try the grilled chicken breast sandwich, you won't be disappointed.
