    The portion size for food isn't worth the price.

    Veggie plate is vegan / vegetarian and includes black beans, rice, sweet plantains, fried yuca, tomato, and avocado. It's heaven. The air conditioning is pretty stellar as well.

    Super cute neighborhood spot for Cuban food. The vibe is very Miami and the cubano is great, especially if you're hungover.

    The breakfast sandwich is a unique gem in a city full of excellent breakfast sandwiches. Churros and beef empanadas are top notch. Hard to go wrong here, really.

    The chorizo served here is housemade by the owner, Ricardo, based on the version he used to bring back from his family in Spain.

    Yummy! And a beautiful place too. They could work their design of the menu by that's just me!

    NOT CHEAP, I repeat, not cheap. But if you can swing it: grilled shrimp and grilled cheese sandwiches are where it's at. Sangria did not have alcohol in it.

    The food is cheap and good. What's not cheap...sparkling water.

    The food is delicious but their wine serving is only a sip.

    Seafood risotto was delicious but too small to share. We happily ordered a carafe of the Malbec. A typical bottle is 4.5 glasses, but the carafe is closer to 5.5. Shrimp entree is super garlic-y.

    We have recently moved to a much larger location nearby, with more seats and a larger kitchen... which means much more delicious Cuban Comfort Food. Visit our mini-Havana!!

    They're moving to a new location on 1/25/15 I think. I walked by and the sign said Greene and Bedford. I love the cortaditos and the ropa vieja.

    Get the roast pork with rice beans and to stones, and then a nice Cuban coffee to seal the meal. My fiancé is Cuban and loves this place to get his fix of Cuban food

    “Pilar” was the name of the boat Hemingway owned while in Havana – and it just so happens the boat was built in Brooklyn (c. 1936). Check out the daily specials.
