Dining at this family-style cuban restaurant is an extra special dining treat. Start with the meson mojito, a signature cuban cocktail made with fresh mint and lime. The mojito recipe calls for a double shot of bacardi light rum, bitters, simple syrup, soda water, and fresh key limes! This is island food and the best of kind. We like to eat here on the patio, although a large group with a lot of kids would probably like going inside the dining room. You can order all the fancy drinks and the food menu is traditional cubano. Recipes do justice to the heritage and expect well-seasoned beef, pork, and chicken dishes. Do for sure get the black beans and try the plantains.
Go ahead and put this restaurant on your to do list when you are down here on the island. If you've never had an opportunity to eat some really good Cuban Food, you are blessed with one of the best places there is anywhere in Florida. I would recommend one of the Combination Platters so you get to taste a bit of this and a bit of that. Do not think it's just black beans and yellow rice, as the menu covers everything from chicken wings to grilled steak. Extra good is the Mahi-Mahi con salsa de camarones, as seafood is better on an island. Mahi fish is known as dolphin, which makes a nice filet. They have a really good garlic mustard sauce for dipping your fish or chicken wings into. If you are into sandwiches, go with the pan con ropa vieja, or shredded beef in tomato creole sauce, served on cuban bread.
