An anchor restaurant of Cuban food that has been in Tampa for over 30 years. The food has consistently been fantastic since I had my first meal there over 30 years ago and today the same quality still exists at very reasonable price. It's rare you get the combination of quality and quantity but you will find it here! Way too many items to detail from the menu but you really can't go wrong with their chicken and yellow rice or pork. Service is usually average to good and they are quick to serve you so lunch is never a problem.

Their banquet services were lacking. They were not set up on time. The room was musty and awfully hot. They just could not cool the room and the guests were very uncomfortable. The food was only so,so. We were disappointed.

Horrible service, we ordered our food and waited for it for about a half hour as they had other people coming in and out with theirs. All we ordered was 3 sandwiches, empanadas, a deviled crab (which we never got because another guy got his order before us) and some eclairs which were stale. The kids at the cash register didn't know what they were doing and almost charged a man 160 dollars for a sandwich. Only good thing about this place is their empanadas, food wasn't great at all. I don't recommend this place unless you want your day to be ruined.

Went here because we were tired of Publix after they got rid of ther Cuban press and we're looking for a real Cuban sandwich. This place was one of the few restaurants open on Mother's Day afternoon and it had promising reviews. I am beyond satisfied with the sandwich I got here. We were the only people eating the sandwiches but they were delicious and everyone else's food looked quite appealing as well. The bread they served, both for the table and for the sandwiches is made at their bakery across the parking lot! So fresh and you could taste the difference from chain places! We ended up getting the Cuban expresso (much better than the crap Starbucks serves), yellow rice and black beans (at the waitresses suggestion) and then two Cuban sandwiches. The meat was beyond generous and the toppings fresh and delicious. If I hadn't filled up on the beans and rice, I would have loved to try the desserts. Will definitely be going back. Long story short: very authentic and delicious Cuban food :)

Enjoy the free crispy Cuban bread and food is good. Not many places I would go back to in Tampa but this is one where I will keep going back. Also, place is very busy but they are pretty big and work fast.

Roast pork was flavorful. Arroz moro was a big serving. A really good dine-in place. Will definitely be back.

I used to visit this place often more then five years ago when I live in Tampa. I recently went back there to dine and it has definitely lost its luster. Food was less then average and the service was undesirable. Order a fish plate and it looked like the vegetables where serve right from a can. I am not going back. There are better places right down the street.

Excelente service. The food was great and it was a lot of food for the price we paid. I totally recommend it.
