We have visited this place many times. The food is wonderful and the people are very friendly. They have authentic food that is homemade and very tasty. I had the ox tail which the waitress recommended the last time I visited. The kids ate Cuban sandwiches that were perfectly prepared. The plantains were wonderful and I highly recommend this place

I grew up in west Tampa and this restaurant keeps up with the oldest and best Tampa hast to offer. We were supprised to find such a great authentic Cuban restaurant in Lakeland fl. Spices were right on, dinners were great, salad was more than expected. The only shortcoming was the Cuban bread served with and before the meal was not warm and not enough. Enjoy.

We are regulars at this restaurant because of the food and service! All the food is well prepared. The ropa vieja and pulled pork as well as the picadillo... is fantastic. They do not have a paella or draught beer but the bottled beers are very cold. The yucca and garlic sauce is some of the best I have ever had! The wine selection is very good. We also like the homemade flan. I highly recommend this restaurant!
