In a large plaza among a slew of shops and other restaurants, this bistro-type eatery offers tasty Cuban dishes via recipes that have been passed down over many generations. The first of this small chain opened in the 1970s in South Florida and has since spawned three more. The menu features such traditional favorites as mariquitas, empanadas, bistec de pollo, churrasco steak and ropa vieja. The menu even offers a paella dish, which is flavorful and delicious. The dining room setting is reminiscent of a cigar bar in Havana. Yellow hues, dark wood tones and a palm tree décor aid in achieving the Cuban feel. The bar can be lively at night and especially during the generous happy hour. Be sure to sample one of their mojitos with your meal.
