Summary

Gloria Estefan and her husband-producer, Emilio, created this large restaurant that marries salsa music with Cuban cuisine. Any number of mom-and-pop Cuban restaurants in the area do a better and more consistent job with this wonderful cuisine, so if you’ve never had Cuban food, try it somewhere else. Come here to have a drink with an umbrella in it and listen to music. Upbeat but noisy.

Setting and Atmosphere

This multilevel restaurant features an airy environment with a tropical theme built around a three-story pine­ apple. Other touches include a banana-leaf roof, banana-leaf ceiling fans, and palm tree–shaped columns. Hand-painted murals and mosaics lend an artistic air, and an open wraparound porch provides pleasant outdoor dining.

House Specialties

Arroz con pollo (chicken with rice), camarones al ajillo (shrimp in garlic sauce), ropa vieja (shredded beef in tomato sauce), and churrasco (grilled skirt steak).
