While definitely more expensive than other nearby restaurants, it's also a lot cleaner, nicer, with great service. The food is good, not great. The appetizers were altogether better than the entrees. The empanada de carne (beef empanada) was very good: not oily, robust, flavorful filling, perfect exterior. The sauce that came with it was also very good. The tamalito de Olga was good, very good corn flavor, inconsistent distribution of meat (there's very little meat, it's mostly the corn). We also enjoyed the plantain chips that are free on the table with the cilantro mayonnaise. The star of the evening was the yuca relleno. WHOA. Would go back just for that. A whipped yuca encompasses a finely ground beef filling, with a light fried exterior. Covered in a cilantro, mustard, mayo dressing. It's great. The arroz con pollo is solid, strong tomato paste flavor and tender chicken (good mix of dark and white meat). Finely sliced peppers are fantastic in it, served with some delicious maduros. The lechon asado is mediocre and we wouldn't order it again. The moro (rice & beans) was good, with nice cumin. The puerco (pork) itself was fairly dry and while it shredded easily it wasn't tender, it was also not salty enough. The staff were fantastic.

I loved this place. Im visiting from florida and was very pleased with the food as well as the service. The food was very good and the servers were very attentive as well. The sangria was awesome as well.😊 It was a bit pricey for the location its in but very well worth it in the end. 👌

BEST CUBAN FOOD IN NY. This place is incredible--great atmosphere (low key, yet nice. often has live music), wonderful service (attentive and NICE staff), and unbeatable food. Every time I come here, I love it more and more. Items to order: Beef empanadas, ham croquetas, chorizo, paella a la valenciana (it's HUGE), sweet plantains, flan, tres leches. Mojitos are made fresh and fruit flavored ones are made with real, fresh fruit.

Tired of fancy ultra popular and packed nyc brunch hangouts, my husband and I stumbled upon this gem in spanish harlem. Brings back memories of miami's little havana restaurants. Amazing coffee coffee and pastries. The omelette with plantains and mozzarella was absolutely perfect. Service prompt and pleasant. Place is very clean. Highly recommended !

Very cute, good value, nice band on the Sunday night we were there. Great cuban sandwich and plantains, wonderfully warm host. Maybe not the finest quality streak but more than good.

the food is delicious, but price for being in harlem, so i would recommend to get a coupon. The fish is really tasty and recommendable. The happy hour is really good for groups. They have live salsa music playing amazingly but very loud
