I love it. Waiters are dressed to the nines. Starches are lip-smacking rice, black beans, plantains and yucca. Meats are sauced with garlic, onion and butter as they should be. Yet somehow, it tastes tired. Maybe it's boring. Maybe I'm jaded as an Angeleno and I need some bells and whistles to make me believe that the Cuban food I'm eating is actually better than I think it is. It may be, 'cus I don't really know Cuban culture beyond their awesome contribution to jazz.
The cuabn cuisine at this place is tasty and authentic. The prices are good and the staff is super friendly. My only gripe is that the parking at this place is VERY poorly laid out. I have seen an accident and more than a couple of dinged up car door in my travels to Versailles.
Great food guys, but gotta work on the parking lot.
When my girlfriend and I saw how packed the place was, we figured it must be good. However, we were very disappointed. The only friendly service we got was when the bus boy seated us. After that, our waiter was grumpy, disinterested in helping answer our questions about the menu, and he mumbled. I ordered a dinner special- fajitas, which was absolutely bland. They removed all flavor possible from the dish....I don't know how they did that. My gf got some pork chop dish with thei...view morer famous sauce on it, but the pork was over cooked and tough, and the citrus sauce on the pork over powered the famous butter garlic sauce (which just tastes like garlic butter....I don't see what the big deal is). The only things that were good were the beans, rice, fried plabtains, and iced tea. But, those items are not enough to make me go back their again.view less
This place sucks! I have been going to this place since i was a kid and i cant believe it has changed so much. You can tell they are using cheaper products cause thier chciken doesnt taste the same and I know for a fact thier servers pick their customers. They fight over the white people and sit them in the front of the restauratn and everyone else in the back. Next time you go in....chech that out its sad. \r
The servers are unattentive and rude. I will never be coming back
Whenever we are in the area, we like to come for Cuban food here.
I always love to order the ropa vieja with the platanos (shredded beef w/plantains).
My husband loves to order the Camarones al Ajillo (Shrimp In Garlic Sauce) very, very delicious. ...view more
You might also get lucky and catch a celebrity here as this is a local favorite.view less
We always order and share #20. I don't remember the name but it is somewhat resembling beef stew meaty dish with red bell peppers and tomatoes - with rice, black beans, and plantains. Consistent good quality. Not too spicy, not fried, very soft, easy on my stomach. They bring it almost immediately. Good espresso.
Although, we noticed if we choose other seats than suggested, it takes much much longer to get your order.
THis all takes place during the day time, morning, lunch hours,...view more so I don't know, maybe it is different at nights.view less
Been to both the Venice Blvd and La Cienaga locations to try the ""Famous Chicken"" dish. My GF got a small steak. We were both un-impressed. My chicken was dry. Her steak was below average. The high scores from other reviewers make me wonder what they ate that I didn't.
this used to be one of my favorite places. i went at least twice a month. i went last night and instead of chicken i got bones fat and skin as if the chicken was torn off. i told my waiter and he was very nice but when he brought the manager, the MANAGER ACCUSED ME of eating it all and trying to get a free meal! after yelling at me for 5 minutes he finally gave me the meal for free. we gave the waiter a 20 percent tip because it wasn't hiw fault but needless to say i'm not going back.
I was raised on Cuban food and have heard everyone in LA swear by it. I finally got to try it out myself and the food was just horrific. I got a Cuban sandwich, which must be the easiest thing on the menu to cook, and it came out so cold that the meat was cold and the cheese wasn't even melted. Normally, the sandwich is grilled. It seemed like it was nuked in a microwave. I'm never going back again.
