Delicious food, good service, not touristy, and really cheap! I had baked fish, kids meals were good size and very cheap $3.95-4.95...might come back again before we leave!

went for lunch recently, walking on the street with plans to go to the beach afterwords. after dealing with the fort knox sign in procedure to get permitted to go to the restaurant discovered that you cannot enter off of or from the beach unless you live in the condo building. making it more interesting you must also sign OUT of the building after you eat and cannot go from the restaurant to the beach. now the nearest beach entry point is several blocks away. Based on the whole beach access issue i will not be going back. there are options for good food north and close to several beach access points. The food was average. They seem to have a lot of local business from the building or those living next door and a lot of construction workers who are working on the building. I could see the ocean above the construction fences, but this place hardly has a beachy feeling. If there was a beach access point next to this building i would probably feel differently, but the food wasnt good enough to make up for lack of access. maybe rename it Exclusive Collins Avenue Cafe it's more accurate for those who dont live in the building.

Nice little place in the Arlen Beach condos. Try the churrasco steak first it's cooked perfect. All the Cuban dishes a very good. Price is right and if you have them validate your parking ticket you save about the cost of one entree! That's a good deal.

We came here on our first day in Miami as the Cafe is right next to the Pavilion they served great food at very good pricing for a cafe inside a well maitained hotel.My husband fell in love with their Cuban sandwiches and this brought us back two more times.Thier fish /chips and coleslaw was so good too.

My sister and her husband own an apartment in this building and so they eat here very often. I came for a visit and we had dinner twice and both meals were very good. Very authentic Cuban cuisine and nice portions you can share. We had tamales for lunch and they were delicious. For dinner we had the arroz con pollo and my own mother couldn't have done better. The price were very reasonable. I would give this place five well deserved stars and recommend it highly.
