Eat from the buffet. Tasty, hot, good selection and cheap. The Cuba style coffee - good and strong. Like ... went out to Salsa, broke my leg, poured some coffee on it and danced for several more hours" kind of strong.

Shrimp creole was outstanding! I wanted to lick the plate. Moros, plantains, grilled bread, and conch fritters were yummy as well!. Overall a fantastic hole-in-the wall with very reasonable prices compared to other options in the area. Super friendly service too.

We are pretty picky about our Cuban food, as my husband is Cuban American and we have experienced some of the best home made and restaurant Cuban to be found. La Niña holds their own. The service was friendly and attentive (we spoke Spanish so we didnt really get a sense of how much English is spoken....but dont fear if... More

We stopped here after a long day on the beach for our first take on Cuban food. We enjoyed the Cuban sandwich and freshly made pineapple juice and watermelon juice! Great food and great staff!

This is my kind of place. Hard working people bringing great Cuban food to Marathon. We had pork, beef, rice, plantains, tostados and beens. FANTASTIC. The coffee is the best in Marathon. Go. Go. Go.

There is no tables inside just a stand up food bar, but they do have picnic tables outside. The freshest and valued in Marathon!

This place was within walking distance of our hotel. We ate here late one night and we were not disappointed. They say if the locals eat at a place it must be good. And that was very true. We had tamales, fried plantains with shrimp, a cuban sandwich and a ham croquettes. And to top it off cafe cubano. Everything... More

Our family was on our way to Key West when we stopped at this little gem for lunch. The ladies were so nice. We ordered the Ox tail lunch plate with side tamale. It was absolutely amazing! You would not regret stopping here.
