    Personally think it's a terrible restaurant. Food tasted like iron, service was terrible.

    The Rio Cristal steak is the best dish, it comes with a mountain of French fries on top of it.

    Best Cuban cuisine in Miami. The Bistec Empanizado de Res with rice, beans and plantains is the stuff that Miami nights and Cuban dreams are made of. Have an Ironbeer too & check out the French fries!

    The bistec empanizado is a popular dish, and everyone likes the homemade french fries. They make their own flan, so make sure you save some room. Their portions are large, saving room is hard. Read more

    A bit pricier for a hole in the wall, but authentic delicious Cuban food. I'm convinced their flan is made by Jesus.
