Staff tries to attract tourists, but the food is tasteless. Too bad given the nice decoration of the place.

Very much enjoyed my visits here. Great food, friendly staff and brilliant service. The grilled fish is well worth trying. Don't miss out.

Family owned and run. Try their ceviche, kabobs and filets you won't regret eating there. Try their breakfast too!

Our party of six had a very nice meal here. The wait staff was very attentive and you can pick your own fish if you like. The chef grilled the fish perfectly and right before your eyes. A nice little cafe.

We had the lobster and pork tacks. The lobster ($15usd) had great flavor but the pork tacos ($7.50usd) were pretty bland, but not terrible. We thought the service was great though, but unfortunately a drunk woman in the restaurant thought otherwise.

The restaurant looks pretty nice, with enthusiastic host. I ordered grilled snapper. When i got it, it was undercooked, after returning the dish, it was put back on the grill, and i got it back, dry and overdone.. Very poor handling as the fish was perfectly fresh, The sidedishes had also cooled down, although they had returned to the kitchen... More

We ordered 2 different mixed drinks that tasted the same and neither tasted of the rum there was supposed to be in it. We had shrimp and fish kebobs with rice and mashed potatoes which were pretty good, but you don't get a lot of food for the money (1 kebob for $7.50 US).

This place is Cuban, so it only makes sense that they would have a great Cuban sandwich. It's very good and cheap too.
