Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 March 2018

We had an OK breakfast and their coffee (cafe con leche) is quite good.

It was Friday and one of their specials on that day of the week is Oxtails. We had an order of this as take out for later that day. It came with two sides. We had the plantains and black beans with white rice. The oxtails and the sides were very delicious.

If you are expecting 5 star restaurant treatment, pass this place by. It is a very small establishment eating off of paper plates. But the food is very well prepared with generous portions. The Cuban sandwiches are wonderful! (There are a couple/few varieties) Every time I visit Marathon, La Nina is on my agenda.

Stopped in for late lunch. Had the Cuban pork with black beans and plantains. Melt in your mouth tender with a nice crunch. The flavors were great, especially the black beans. We got more to go for a quick dinner! The staff is friendly and were chatting with their regulars. Loved the colorful interior. A tiny spot that packs real quality into every moment and bite.

Ordered two Cuban sandwiches $17 & change
Brought them home and in one alone were three different
inedible translucent ‘chunks’ then towards the end was a
rubbery piece of leather/skin/tongue that couldn’t be chewed
Don’t waste your money - horrible food

Loved this place. Cuban sandwiches are huge, could have shared. Large glass of fresh juice for only $2.50!
