A staple for many years in the area, serving Cuban food a bit on the moderate to pricey side. Food was very good, service friendly and attentive. Full bar. Parking in lot next to restaurant.

This place was once a gem. It's hit the skids. Poor food, reheated rice, cold beans. Poor and careless service. I would give it one star, but I once loved this place and hope that they return to their former performance.

Decent food and good atmosphere, but priced too high given the fact that it is located on top of a grocery store in Union City, NJ.

This place is going down hill! We have been coming here for years but tonight was surely our last visits. The waiters are extremely sneaky raising the prices on the bill from what is stated on the menu with hopes things won't be caught. Truly...More

The food didn't seem the same as my prior visit. Actually my wife got sick afterwards. Maybe it was just that night, but probably won't be coming back anytime soon.
