    The rice and beans here are VERY disappointing. Tastes like minute rice and the beansnhave no flavor at all. MoreHispanic-American restaurant than anything else. Everything else is ok though.

    Mojito is served with a little stick of sugar cane!!

    Was very disappointed with the white rice and black beans. Being Latina I am very picky about the taste of my rice and beans. These beans were sweet and the rice had no taste, rice cooker maybe? 😝

    Place is very nice, nice atmosphere, food was excellent except the white rice is made either on a rice cooker or is like a uncle bens and beans were sweet. Not my style at all especially when ur Latin

    Ask the bartender Ed to make you a Caribbean Dream or a Mojito. Or both.
