The food here was delicious. I had an expresso and two tamales because I wasn't very hungry but I wish I could have tried more. The owner/cook/server is an extremely amiable host and provided great service. A couple of people in our party had too much to drink but he didn't hold it against us. I will definitely be going...

Nice owners and good atmosphere for casual lunch or dinner. The food is an ok nod to Miami quality Cuban food, but sometimes poor. Still better then your average sandwhich shop and good for a local lunch. Good if you want a nod to Cuban Flavors. If you want more authentic, Mimi's Mad Cuban Cafe in Simpsonville is typically a...

Our son and family live in Spartanburg and we make it a point to frequent this establishment when we come and visit. The food is absolutely delicious, especially the different types of pork and chicken. The jerk chicken is my favorite but everything is wonderful. The owner is a very friendly and makes you feel very welcome and he also... More

Went here for an authentic Cuban dinner and weren't disappointed. The owner not just cooks but serves you and is most interested in pleasing you and getting your feedback. I had the jerk chicken. It is a hot spicy dish so if you don't want it real spicy ask him. The yucca was great-I don't normally like but gave it... More

I love supporting local businesses, but our experience of going here twice has been very poor. The service is good, but the food doesn't even come close to fresh and authentic taste. The food tasted like if had been sitting all day. I hope the owners do something about this or we're never coming back. I really wanted to like... More

The quality of the food was exceptional. The plantains were some of the best I have ever had. Restaurant is well decorated. Will have to return to try additional dishes and desserts.
