2014-01-01 15:33:33 Very nicely decorated. Excellent bar with many Martini's and Caribbean style drinks. Went with my wife and another couple. The Paella was excellent and can serve 2 people (they will split it if you ask). The Island Jerk Pork loin was good but I think there are better items on the menu that I will try the next time. The Plantain Chips with a Corn Salsa were an excellent starter (the only bad thing was they were all eaten in about 2 minutes). —scotthendler
2014-01-26 14:58:15 My second visit, this time with a party of six. Service was very pleasant and accommodating. One member of our party was vegetarian, and the waiter checked with the kitchen and came back with some creative "off menu" options for her. Everyone at the table enjoyed their cocktails, appetizers, and meals. Prices are not cheap but you get a good portion. They seem to be off to a good start, highly recommended, hope they continue to do well. —DottieHoffmann

2016-10-10 15:12:00 I'm a fan. It's a nice change of pace and I quite like the food and drinks. I don't know why their portions are so big! You'd think they could cut costs and make the prices a little cheaper by doing so. The Cuban sandwich itself is literally two meals. —DE
