What a wounderful Night!! – I just had dinner with some friends on a very busy Saturday night, the food was delicious! I had the Chicken Breast (it was very juicy and full of flavor), my friends had the Palomilla Steak and Lechon Asado (pork) and they were very happy. The service was surprisingly fast and efficient and the MOJITOS were the best that I've had in LA. What impressed us the most was the atmosphere in this place, everyone seemed like they were having a great time. This restaurant is more than just about food. As for my friends and I, we will for sure come back again and again. Awesome place...............
YUCK – I came back from Florida just itching for a great cuban restaurant in the valley. I looked up cuban on the internet and came across this place, which was very close to my home. I was quite excited to go. We ordered an appetizer that never came- Croquetas de Jamon (ham croquettes), and I didn't realize this until after we had our meals which were so awful, I couldn't bother with trying the appetizer. The server was more interested in his buddies working with him than his only two customers that night. I ordered Pierna Asada (pork marinated in cuban spices) and my boyfriend ordered the Bisteck de Palomilla (top sirloin with cuban seasonings). Both our meals were so garlic laden, we couldn't eat them, and we like garlic! I ordered a side of black beans which also took forever to come. Again, the flavor was off. Either Florida Cuban food is competely different than Los Angeles Cuban food, or this place was AWFUL. I haven't wanted Cuban since. It left a very bad taste in my mouth- and makes me sick just thinking about eating it.
sluggish monday with pretty good food – Hey there folks--Just grabbed dinner with three friends on a Monday night. We were the only people in the joint and the waiter had really beedy eyes with a rotund belly under his black vest. The sangria was tasty as was the food. the ropa vieja is a bit better at versailles, but overall it ranks as one of the better Cuban joints around. I've been to most and I would feel pretty rightcheous recommending this to a stranger. Alrato agente
Wonderful for the whole family, great food – This little restaurants is one of our local favorites. We love the Cuban food (better than Versailles), and the funky, fun atmosphere. For many holidays there is live music. When you go on a crowded night, the small waitstaff can be a little overwhelmed, but our service has always been excellent nonetheless. They are helpful, charming, knowlegeable, and very kind, especially to our babies. The food is just delicous and worth going back for again and again, even if it is a little pricey for our budget. If you want local color and delicious food, don't pass up this great small restaurant.
excellent service and music – I am really happy to live close to Guantanamera because is like to be in my house in Cuba with my grandma, the service is great is like to be in a Ranchon in Santiago de Cuba, the food is excellent due to is real cuban food like homemade, i love the enviroment there, is amazing everybody dancing and you can felt the happiness in the air. I will come back with my friends
great service and food – last week i went to this restaurant with my friends and was a nice expirience, all the staff is extremely friendy, the food is excellent and the enviroment is great, because is a classic family ambience, is the best cuban restaurant that i visited, i'll recomend Guantanamera to all mi friends and co workers
Extremely bad customer service – I and my boyfriend came in, the lady had a very irritated and unfriendly expression on her face. We had to wait for 30 minutes for our food. The food is OK. If you need something, you need to wait forever for a waiter to come up to you. I tried saying "excuse me..", raised my hand, coughed, said umm-ummmm couple of times.
If I were to compare service at Denny's and at this place, I would go with Denny's.
Food is average - Service? – The food was average tasting (nothing to write home about) for some reason we had the worst service from all food servers and table busers, the appetizers literally came 1 minute before our meal approx 30 minutes after we ordered them and our glasses of water ran empty and stayed that way until we left.
The Ropa viejo was a bit chewy and the picadillo habenera could be compared to the meat of a sloppy joe, I was tempted to ask for a whole bolio to create my own manwhich.
If you go to meet friends and have drinks at the bar - this would definitely be a 3rd or 4th option.
pretty tasty – i have never been to cuba so i will not say if this restaurant is authentic or not, but it is the tastiest cuban restaurant i have been to in southern california. i had the pierna asada and it was delish! my husband ordered the picadillo a la habeanera and it was just ok. the staff was friendly and the overall interior of the restaurant was average, but the food was the highlight for me. if you want an evening of tasty cuban food that won't pinch your pocketbook i would recommend guantanamera.
The best cuban food in SC – The minute you walk through the doors of this restaurant is like walking into Cuba, they have the frendliest staff I have ever seen. They are very knowlegeable about the menu since they are almost all cubans... down to their accent. The food is excelent, the best black beans I have had. I had the "fricase de pollo"... it was delicious. The prices are very good also. The band that was playing plus the hole atmosphere was making the hole evening seem like I had just traveled to Cuba. We are definitely going back.
