A friend took me to this restaurant while I was visiting LA. She had been raving about the Masitas De Puerco ever since we started planning the trip. Not that I didn't believe her, but I was more curious than excited. But she was so...More

We were looking for a salsa club where we could also eat beforehand – unfortunately we had to leave (much to my other half's disappointment), and then return for dancing, as the menu did not cater for vegetarians. All the waiting staff seemed to speak...More

If you love salsa dancing, this is by far one of the best salsa spots in LA for advanced salsa dancers. The live bands make you feel like you are right back in Cuba dancing the night away. They offer a salsa class before the...More

I'll start with the positive: the music is out of this world and the dancing is great! The service was also good. The food, however, leaves a lot to be desired. It is not good Cuban food - just a pale and imperfect interpretation of...More

El Floridita is pretty nondescript on the outside, but the interior is roomy and well-appointed. A friend of mine from L.A. via Miami and his son took me to an early dinner around 5 pm on a Saturday, and the place was empty. Smart move...More

My family ate here in April, we were a large group and ate early so had the place to ourselves, before the dancing began. The food was delicious, especially the pork dishes and the sampler appetizer plate. I enjoyed it all! Service was very good...More

I just had the weirdest experience at El Floridita. I used to live in South Florida and I'm very familiar with Cuban food. My favorite is the Cuban white bean soup, called Caldo Gallego. I looked at the menu and thought that everything looked fairly...More

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night
