I have to admit I love pretty much anything fried, so its hard to decide between the tostones and the bollos here... The food in general is great though - if they have the sea bass on special, jump on it. My friends had the churrasco and loved every bite. I am not Cuban so I have to rely on what I have heard when people say its the most authentic Cuban food they have had outside of Miami. The only drawback - its a small place so it gets CRAZY some nights. They do a lot of take out business so I guess things can be hectic in the kitchen when its especially busy. I have been back a dozen times or so; my advice is go early, go often & bring cash (you dont need much - its also a fantastic bargain!)

The service was terrible and the waitresses rather inconsiderate and rude.

Due to the cramped space and crowds, they barely let you finish and ask you to leave the table! Incredible. Everything about it was average, but tolerable, but the worst were the house rules. They have wierd rules: you can make reservations only for 6 or more, and they expect everyone to arrive together. If some members of the party arrive earlier than rest, they do not allow to seat at the table, unless all arrive!! Stay away on busy weekend nights or be prepared to eat slow-cooked food at fast-food pace! We went this Saturday night, and faced the brunt of all those rules. Will not go back again in a hurry.

The food is always good, and the people re nice. They DO take credit cards. The review is out of date.
