Lovely dining experience. So many excellent choices! I'll have to go back again. Great service too.

Amazing experience from the professional mixology staff (thanks Alex) to the incredible presentation and flavors of Traditional Cuban dishes. We strongly recommend and will be back often. Recommendation... Try everything!

Great local food, awesome, friendly staff. Casual but high quality. Big portions for tapas. Will have to go back to try everything that looked amazing. The bad news is that you can't choose wrong.

An authentically Cuban night out. Everything up and down the menu seemed like an effort to make the best, modern version of a classic dish. Not every plate was a success but tapas means there's always another course coming. Service was good if a bit hectic for so early in the evening. The decor is comfortable but not truly unique. I liked this restaurant a lot and if it weren't in competition with so many great tapas in Durham right now it would be 5 stars.

The food is amazing and the cocktails are unique and fun. The waiter staff really understand the menu and the culture behind the dishes and they just add to the overall experience. If you haven't been it is a must for a true downtown Durham experience. Just don't be in a hurry, the concept is multiple courses and a leisure dinner to visit with your friends and share authentic Cuban food cuisine.

Friendly staff. Pleasant atmosphere. The food was good but did not quite meet expectations. I may have chosen poorly. Definitely worth another try.

Came with my partner for dinner and was excited to try a new, highly rated place. Left disappointed, mad, and hungry. Cocktails were very good. Food was okay, but nothing fantastic. One of the dishes came out with half of the food missing. When I addressed this, the waiter told me I must be mistaken and that the vegetables must be “mixed in.” They weren’t, the kitchen realized this and corrected the mistake, but at this point I was mad and had lost my appetite. Overall, I paid way too much for mediocre food (that I didn’t eat) and to have my intelligence insulted. There are too many places in the Triangle area like COPA that are actually worth the money for me to ever come back.

Freshest, tastiest salad I've ever had - seriously. All the rest of the fare was delicious as well, and served in an interesting way. For example, platanos rellenos are usually cups made of plantain, fried, and when they're solid, filled with the meat. But here, the filling is surrounded by the plantain, which looks to have been fried while the plantain was still uncooked, and so it reached out with lovely web-like structures. The visual appeal was almost as impressive as the taste itself. But the taste of this and all the other fare, was by far the MVP of the night. I would love to return!!
