I had not eaten here in about three years and was delighted to re-discover it. The dishes most of us ordered were... More

Friendly service, pleasant but empty atmosphere on a weeknight, looked clean. Food was OK, had mixed seafood dish and the sauce was a little too salty not very well seasoned.

We visited Cuba a while ago. Cuban's has way better food than we had in Cuba, plus the staff are just as welcoming and pleasant as the Cubans on the island. The art on the walls is very reminiscent of the places we visited. The paella and other seafood dishes are superb. Several of the people we've brought have enjoyed... More

I stumbled at lunchtime upon this restaurant on a side street in downtown Silver Spring and decided to give it a try. The interior is lots of fun with brightly colored walls and paintings of Cuban scenes. They've got daily lunch specials and a good selection of typical Cuban fare. I ordered the daily fish special (tilapia in a garlic... More

Thank God I had a discount because their food was definitely average. I've been to this restaurant more than twice hoping that it was just a bad day but sadly I was wrong. Their prices were also very high but the staff was excellent! The mojitos we're also good. The restaurant is set up very nicely with good ambience but... More
