“This is always our first stop”
Reviewed April 11, 2014 via mobile

We love to vacation in Hot springs and every trip includes at least one meal here. Ask for the back patio area, if you didn't know it was there it would likely escape your experience.

“Good CUBAN food & beverages”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

Loved the tilapia and chicken dishes prepared with mojo (garlic) and Cuban spices. Good "top tier" margaritas but the Cuban Mojitos are even better.

The flaming cheese dip was a real let down. The cheese is really good, but there was almost NO chorizo sausage or green onion - and the cheese was NEVER melted so we had to literally cut it with knife and fork from the very first bite.

Definitely save room for the Rum Cake. It's kind of like a bundt cake but with lots of rum and pecans.

Would definitely recommend because it's different from the usual "south of the border" food. Be adventuresome and order something besides a burrito. Go with the waiter's recommendation.

“Awesome Food”
Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

The food was delicious! We loved the corn and black bean dip. The service was awesome! We ate upstairs in the 20' and 30's. The drinks were good too! The special margarita was so refreshing!

“Unexpected”
Reviewed April 2, 2014 via mobile

Was recommended to us by a staff member at Quapaw Bathhouse and sounded interesting so we went. Dined upstairs which is decorated to be speakeasy-like.

We wife and I were excited to be able to sit down and enjoy some South American food, however, the menu seemed rather limited in variety and choice-there are a lot of dishes that seemed to be the same with a slight variation.

Ultimately we found dishes to eat and the food itself was quite good! Definitely a nice little spot right off Bathhouse Row! Also, their salsa is terrific and is corn and black bean based which was unique.
