We do wish you left a bit more satisfied with the value though. With the rising costs in food right now we are making every step to ensure that our guests feel every dollar was well spent - through the flavors, the portion, the service, etc. We do hope we have the opportunity to serve you again one day and impress even more. Thank you.

Salty and mushy. Replaced it w/ a garlic chicken yellow rice and black beans better but mediocre. The drinks are food. Service so so. Been coming here for years bit wont he back

While it was busy, the server’s lack of attention hit everyone around us. I didn’t see him come back to check on any table near our section. I sat with an empty water glass for half my meal. The empanadas were delish but the pernil was dry. Had he come around, I would’ve asked for more limes and actually gotten around to eating some of it. However the portions were definitely decent. Mojitos were good but I ordered a basic mojito and the waiter took it upon himself to upcharge for a better rum than their house without telling me about the upcharge. I thought the rum he mentioned was the rum it came with? Basically, I could’ve gone to El Valle or Brisas and gotten a lunch plate, saved myself the trip downtown and money.

This "Cuban" restaurant an odd with Dominican music blaring the entire time and Mexican decorations haphazardly displayed. The empanadas were good, but the rest of the meal was just adequate. Do not plan to return. The restaurant does not give a Cuban vibe or feel at all. It seems to be an old establishment where Dominican dance music is thrown in with Mexican decorations and the majority of the Spanish food service is of Cuban origin with a bland twist.

This past week was Cinco de Mayo and that is why Corona came in and decorated. Those are certainly not normally there - just a festive week! We do hope to serve you again sometime. Thanks!

Got pretty noisy around 6 o’clock, making it hard to chat. Cocktails were absolutely delicious and most of the food was delightful. Chicken sofritos empanada was a little bland though. Definitely recommend the churros for dessert
