gREAT FOR lUNCH – Very small casual setting restaurant with home made Cuban cooking and friendly service, highly recomended.
Excellent food with a family touch – The food was excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant just for the wonderful creations of Chef Fausto Alvarez. The service left a little to be desired. It was obvious that the restaurant is family owned and operated. Chaos abounded. Yet, it was still a charming place that I will visit again.
Yummy Mom and Pop's Place – Found this little hole in the wall place on Lake. It's pretty good! The service was a little slow but that's because Mom is in the kitchen cooking up a a meal for you. The food was Cuban, which is ironic because that fancy "J-Lo" restaurant is right behind it. But this restaurant had a more "home-cooking" feel. I really liked the Cuban chicken, really flavorful. And of course who doesn't love Plantains.
