This was actually my first time here and I was truly grateful for the great service we received! We came here for my Mom's 62 ND Birthday and I have to say the people here went above and beyond. The owner even added my mother's picture to the menu. It was def a great touch to add to her birthday celebration. The apps were delicious and a big portion as well. The food was good and the music was awesome! We will definitely be coming here again! Great atmosphere ?
I love Cuban food, however I haven?t been able to find a place in norther NJ that I can honestly say the food is amazing. We decided to come here after so many great reviews. The place is clean and the music is amazing. Sadly the food wasn?t as expected, I couldn?t tell you the exact spices they use to season their beef, only that whatever they used gave the meat a not so pleasant taste. It just lacked of that Latin flavor. The rice tasted like box rice, not a fan of box rice. It is not all bad, I did enjoy their Yuca fries, well seasoned and not soaked in oil. Sadly I don?t think I will be returning, but hope to find another Cuban place around this area.
We love this spot. Great empanadas and sandwiches. We do takeout from here a few times a month. Some feedback: We find that entree food is super salty. Wish they would tone that down, I?ve asked and it still comes way too salty for me. I like and use salt, it is not me and my husband, sister and brother-in-law agree. it?s delicious otherwise, please fix ?.
I ate here many times and this place never disappoints! I have also brought here many friends and family and everyone loves it.
Such a classy place! I made reservations for a party of 8 for my moms 74th birthday. I was contacted by EJ and he asked for a picture of my mom which he printed on our menus. She was pleasantly surprised and would not stop talking about the amazing experience she was provided by EJ and staff. The food was very delicious. We ordered empanadas, ham croquettes and guac as appetizers which where delish!! The entrees where several to name however super tasty and large portions. I highly recommend this restaurant and we will be back!
Walking into a small restaurant second guessing because there were only 3 parties sitting decided to give it a chance and let me tell you something. BEST AUTHENTIC FLAVOR IVE HAD IN A LONG TIME. Everything from the ceviche, to the empanadas, to the trifongo, ropa vieja all the way down to the black beans. INCREDIBLE!! 10 out of 10.
Had a great time with friends here. The food was delicious and the server was great. The music was lovely. It is a very small restaurant, but definitely cozy. Would recommend if your looking for great Cuban cuisine. It's also BYOB. Whatever you order you must try the empanadas. They were absolutely delicious! Do not leave here without eating at least 1. They are $3.50 a piece, but so worth it. They are good size portion too. I had the chicken empanadas, but they have so many options for fillings. So take your time and choose one or two! The empanadas come with a delicious side sauce made of cilantro. I know right! I am not a huge fan of cilantro in general, but Believe me it was delicious, just try it. Also those fries in the pic are yuca fries ?!
Wow!!!!!! Is all I can say this was my 1st time visiting the restaurant it was clean , nice decor , staff was extremely courteous and polite . Linda was our server she was attentive and presentable . The food was delicious and presentation was outstanding . Would definitely go back ..
