  • Get an arnold palmer or a john daly you wont be disappointed
  • Place is very nice, nice atmosphere, food was excellent except the white rice is made either on a rice cooker or is like a uncle bens and beans were sweet. Not my style at all especially when ur Latin
  • Crazy amazing food. Chill atmosphere. Try the coconut crusted tilapia. P.S. Cuban de leche' is a little piece of heaven
  • Mojito is served with a little stick of sugar cane!!
  • Was very disappointed with the white rice and black beans. Being Latina I am very picky about the taste of my rice and beans. These beans were sweet and the rice had no taste, rice cooker maybe?
  • Great value happy hour 3:30 to 6:30
  • Mango mojito is the best drink EVER. And I don't drink.
  • Food is great. And rum. Lots of rum. Dark and Stormy is recommended!
  • Thank you to Amanda & Dominic from Zafra's for remembering my birthday and giving me this tasty piece of Tres Leches Cake.
  • Love this place... Rum heaven
  • Awesome Cuban food, drinks from the massive rum selection are amazing, The bartenders know how to make some excellent drinks!
  • The rice and beans here are VERY disappointing. Tastes like minute rice and the beansnhave no flavor at all. MoreHispanic-American restaurant than anything else. Everything else is ok though.
  • Lechon Asado!
  • Everything was fresh.. delishh
  • Is not the best mojito in the world, I had better mojitos at a bar!
  • Amazing food. The waitress overheard us saying that it was my friend's birthday so she gave us a slice of delicious tres leches cake on the house!
  • All the best rum and amazing food. A must if you love sipping on a high quality aged rum like you would a scotch.
  • Apps/Mojitos are great.... Especially the Fresh Sugar Cane
  • O.M.G. The seafood bisque. To die for.
  • Ask the bartender Ed to make you a Caribbean Dream or a Mojito. Or both.
