This little gem is well-hidden south of Market Street but is worth searching for! Cute "courtyard-style" interior and floor-to-ceiling windows make you feel like you're sitting outdoors throughout. The food was inventive & delicious and our server, Michael, was attentive but not overbearing. Definitely a fine restaurant in the midst of the schlocky, tourist-trap cheesesteak shops! Highly recommend & will definitely return! (Loved the "pineapple-guacamole!)

Good and service is absolutely delicious! The 6 of us (plus one 12-year-old kid) had a sumptuous dinner! We are definitely coming back here! Located at the heart of Olde City on Philadelphia!

One of my gavorite restauranrs in Philadelphia. Lovated in a fun, trendy part of the city. Good selection of Latin Americam cuisine, including apps, light share plates, entrees and desserts. Love the Arroz con Pollo. The Taste of Havana platter is nice. It includes a bowl of black bean aoup, a generous salad and an authentic Xubam pressed sandwich. Also food mojitos. We were seated at our table for about 15 minutes without a server coming back and the manager came to our table with a free pineapple guacamole appitizer because she noticed we had been waiting.

love this restaurant. Love the ambiance, especially in the warmer months. mango mojitos are simply amazing. there are 30 different kinds to choose from all made from sugar cane. Most bars use simple syrup which doesn't hold a candle to these mojitos. The servers, nothing but professional, the food, simple delicious. Everything is made to order. Just an exceptional place to eat and have drinks, especially any drinks made with rum.
