    Took an hour to get an appetizer and an entree. The restaurant was not packed. The worse is having to wait that long and the server didn't not even check in with us. The guava cheesecake was not good

    The BEST Cuban sandwich, pernil, flan, the croquettes are to die for and the breakfast empanadas (with chorizo) is my all time favorite!!!

    Not worth the wait. Reserved table sat there for 45 minutes while a massive line formed. Hostess can’t run the front door and the food took forever.
