    Cash-only. No-frills. This South Beach staple dishes out the best cubanos in town. Grab one from the take-out window and head back to the beach. Read more

    This place is fantastic. Order a Cubans and an empanadas with plantains and black beans on the side. Flan and a 90cent espresso for dessert.

    Tried getting one of the daily specials. Took multiple people to figure out they were out. Ordered something else and ended up with the wrong food. Maybe good for breakfast but I'm unimpressed.

    This is one of my favorite places to eat in Miami. Empanadas - could eat them forever. Arroz con frijoles - coming right up. Lechon, the list just goes on.

    Las Olas es básicamente un landmark en Miami. Los sándwiches son muy buenos y el 'iced cuban coffee' es genial, y yo no tomó café. La mejor relación valor-precio de la ciudad.

    Excelente opción, rica comida. Paciencia por que no hay mucho donde sentarse. Pedí un sandwich Cubano y café con leche.

    Cubano sandwich is fantastic. Watch them slather it with butter and throw it on the plancha. Longest 5 minutes of your life.

    Small deli-like place with 5 tables. No visible menu and the staff mostly speak Spanish. They don't take credit cards either. Thankfully, breakfast here is fantastic. Get the scrambled eggs with ham.

    Sanduíche e café com leite deliciosos. Um sanduíche é o suficiente para duas pessoas com pouca fome. Viemos tomar café da manhã tarde e eles já estavam com o servindo almoço que parece ser delicioso

    Went to puerto saga and tropical beach cafe and this place is the only legit place. Order the media noche which is a Cuban with sweeter bread. Don't be afraid to fight for the register!

    so busy here that it's rude. by the time I pay, my meal is cold and the staff can't handle the customers. The sound of people screaming over each other is crazy. Don't waste your money or your time.

    The empanadas, both carne & pollo, are amazing. The cafe con leche & cortadito's are some of the best coffee I've ever had.

    Local-style informal Cuban restaurant with the best homemade dishes, made daily. The menu always changes, but the delicious flavors do not. Try the sugarcane juice.
