    You must go here if on your next trip to South Beach. This is the place for authentic Cuban food at a great price! One of the waiters, a local, at Michael's Genuine Food & Drink, was super helpful and recommended this over other expensive authentic Cuban options. He told us that it's basically all the same food, so go to the place that's less expensive.

    Our experience here was great. The food was delicious, and the was super friendly.

    Awesome cheap and authentic Cuban eats! We were bummed they ran out of their oxtail, one of their most popular dishes, but really enjoyed their ropa vieja. Very tender beef in a delicious sauce that tasted so good on top of rice. Sweet plantains are yummy. Get a glass of sangria to wash it all down, and try to save room for their desserts. Service is friendly and quick!

    **TWO WORDS: ROPA VIEJA**

    We walked far for this place.

    But oh so worth it.

    A diner-ish unassuming restaurant with an authentic feel of Cuban workers, Cuban pastries, and vintage Cuban dark wood decor.

    We sat at the bar.

    ORDERED:

    *ROPA VIEJA - Tender, flavorful, and tasted well with the rice and plantains.

    *GLASS OF SANGRIA - Delicious! Not too sweet and not too strong. Floating fruits and good red wine.

    Heard the oxtail was also amazing.

    A MUST-STOP for those visiting SoBe.

    RECOMMEND.

    Cheap and delicious Cuban joint in the heart of Miami Beach. It's not Abuela's house, but then again nowhere is. Puerto Sagua serves up some of the best Cuban food in Miami, and no visit to Miami is complete without a taste of the Cuban pride: arroz con frijoles, platanito maduro, and of course, lechon!

    Small Cuban spot right in the center of South beach. Huge menu that ranges from Cuban sandwiches and burgers to oxtail stew (which I recommend).

    Take a luncheonette/diner and swap out the menu for authentic Cuban cuisine. You have Puerto Sagua. There, you'll find mix of tourists and frequent locals all enjoying tasty Cuban fare prepared with gusto. That means large portions served with a smile. You'll wish it wasn't so filling so you could enjoy more- easy to do with pretty reasonable prices.

    Puerto Sagua offers delicious affordable Cuban food in the South Beach Area. Some friends and I decided to stop by while visiting Maimi a couple weeks ago. We were very happy with our experience.

    Service:

    The service was decent. Our party of 7 was quickly seated upon arrival on a Monday night. Orders were taken and food arrived in a timely manner. No complaints about service.

    Food:

    The food was quite tasty. We ordered some potato balls as a appetizer. I also had the Cuban sandwich and the ropa vieja. The ropa vieja is served with some rice, beans and plantains. Delicious! I love sweet plantains.

    For what I can remember the food we delicious. However, at this point I had quite a bit to drink at our Hotel's free happy hour. Everything seems to taste better when you are buzzed.

    I wouldn't mind trying Puerto Sagua again if I'm ever in the area.

    this place has been here forever - great traditional Cuban food without having to leave SoBe. Location is also great. Love to eat her after a lazy day on the beach.

    We were on a hunt for authentic cuban food and that's what we got. This is a small little joint, nothing fancy, quick and dirty if you will. But DELICIOUS! We tried an empanada and croquette to start. It was a good attempt at the empanada but the chicken inside was super dry. The croquette was pretty standard but yummy.

    The following entrees I highly recommend:
    The Ropa Vieja - Shredded beef with rice and plantains on the side. Beef was really tender and the juice/sauce it was swimming in was sooo flavorful. I would have been happy with just rice and the juice alone.
    Pepper Steak - Beef slices with peppers in a more citrus-ey sauce. This came with rice and beans. Another yummy treat in the mouth.

    My friend had the Tamale - came with rice and beans. He didn't look as pleased as the rest of us with our food, but he still completely cleaned his plate.

    We INHALED our food. If I'm ever back in Florida, i will definitely return.

    Inexpensive, traditional Cuban fare. Nothing fantastic, but great value. Has been in Miami Beach forever - frequented by locals.
