We first tried this restaurant when our son was a student at Rice and have been returning ever since. The food is always well prepared and we especially enjoy the Cuban specialties---masitas and ropa vieja are not to be missed, and if you have any room left for dessert, the flan is delicious. On our last visit we met the owner, Peter, who ably helped us select a nice Spanish wine to accompany our meal, then continued to check on us throughout dinner to make sure things were wonderful. Niki, our server, was delightful as well, and we felt like close friends rather than occasional visitors. Food is moderately expensive but fairly priced, and the wine list is balanced to provide options at all price points. Great job, Peter and staff, we'll be back often!
