Description: Seasonal Restaurant: October 15 - Mid April Annually Romantic tropical garden cafe with lots of charm. Beautiful, spacious outdoor setting, screened in by palm trees & flowers. The gentle breeze creates a Key West feel. Where traditional Cuban staples and fresh Gulf of Mexico seafood are transformed into flavorful caribbean-style dishes with Carlos’ stamp of passion on each one of them. Breakfast 7-11 daily Start your day with the smell of fresh ground Cuban coffee laced with silky warm whole milk. Every breakfast includes fresh ingredients and authentic Cuban flavors. You’ll savor the Havana Omelette, The “Rena,” Chorizo Egg Sandwich or Steak & Eggs. Like hot sauce on your eggs? Try Carlos’ Hot Sauce and buy a bottle to take home. Lunch 11-3 daily Sandwiches are served on our pressed Cuban bread, made from scratch in our kitchen. The black beans start as dry beans and are cooked with no pork fat; the fish is caught daily from our family’s boat. Sweet Plantains or Tostones are perfect for sharing. Enjoy a mouth-watering sandwich such as Dulce’s Cuban, Grouper or Vegetarian Sandwich. Dinner 5-8 Fridays & Saturdays *Paella by Reservation Relax with soft lighting, music and savor special dinner entreés. Carlos’ creativity with spices and mixing flavors has perfected dishes such as Carlos’ Shrimp Plate, Stone Crab Enchilado, and Paella to name a few. Authentic Cuban flavor with an island flare.

Just get down here and go as many times as you can. Their food, waitstaff and setting is amazing! I wish I lived next door! Scallops, chorizo, fish, pork....every meal was delicious, flavorful and hearty. Don't forget to buy some hot sauce on the way out!

Outside garden seating with authentic Cuban food, which is owned by local Cuban family. It was a great place with very large portions. Service was friendly and very prompt. Will go back when in the area. They are no longer serving dinner only lunch and breakfast.

A delightful restaurant in Chokoloskee with a tropical seating outside in the everglades. I had the Cuban (of course) and it was delicious and large for me but my friend devoured the whole sandwich! They have various other items on the menu. It's located a few miles from Everglade City which is around an hour's drive from Marco Island.

We came here on the recommendation of our fan boat driver and I was somewhat dubious. But it was incredibly delicious and well done - our best meal of the entire trip. We ordered the grilled grouper which came with a lovely tomato and cucumber salad and excellent rice and beans. Kids got steak plates which were delicious. Fabulous fries. My cafe con leche was worth the trip on its own. A lovely setting with bouganvillea all over. Would be beautiful at night.
