Tried it for lunch...their first day. Unorganized, but trying hard. Food was pretty good, and very reasonably priced. I had the beef picadillo, yellow rice, and a few maduros (which they substituted happily for the beans). Flan was good. The owners are incredibly earnest and enthusiastic - they were walking around soliciting comments and suggestions. Good music playing. I think they'll do well. They have a mojito bar which is opening in the back tonight - they'll have several kinds of mojitos, cuba libres, and other stuff...I'll definitely go back for lunch again and again. They're making what looks like real cafe con leche, too, and they're open at breakfast time...
