Tried this location since the newer one they had in Frisco was closed down(that one was great). Ordered fried pork meat (masas) and seem to been baked and quickly fried or were left overs, but surely not fresh. My partner ordered the same

What a shame this is. Someone worked very hard to open a restaurant and use their family recipes. There are mixed reviews on Yelp and Citysearch. I dined there and planned to write about it in a newspaper for which I am the restaurant

I was excited about going to the Caribbean Cafe because of the great reviews. I took two friends with me and to my chagrin the service was mediocre, the Margaritas , though good, one of the margarita was served immediately the other two

It's a great quaint family run place. The food is authentic, I have taken a few people and everyone has loved it. We have to go at least three times a month. The staff are fantastic and make us feel like family. As a Cuban I highly recommend it, you will not be disappointed.

I went to the rest. w/ no expectations since recently went to S. FL and had great Cuban food there... the truth is that I was very surprised how good the food was.

Very tasty nothing fancy but tasty... I def. recommend this place for a taste of Cuba. Now that I finally tried it I'm coming back soon, that;s for sure!

Two weeks ago I had lunch here and asked myself why in the world I had not been here in over a year! This family owned and operated restaurant serves Cuban food cooked home style. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, and the food makes converts out of every first-timer. Maybe the best evidence of the quality of their food is the many Hispanic faces that you find here all the time, having a leisurely meal with friends and family. Don't understand what a dish is all about? Ask the staff, they will be glad to assist. I always enjoy the white rice, black or red beans, fried plantains, and fried yucca. A vegetarian, I find a variety of seafood dishes to make me happy. I definitely recommend Caribbean Cafe to anyone who enjoys tasty food served in a family atmosphere.

Hello All,

Expect to pay around $12 to $18 for almost anything at lunch except the cuban sandwich wich- as they state on the menu- is made with french bread instead. This cuban sandwich cost $7.00 just by itself. No fries, or plantains or drink is included unless you request it and you happen to be serve by one of the direct family member owners, if they are having a good day.

The tast of the food? Just ordinary rice and beans you can cook in you own house. Stakes that are hard to shew and fried plantains that you can get in any brasilian restaurant too. Ah, expect it to be cold by the time they bring it out.

The service? Unfriendly and cold. They seem very timid in there exect to let you know they wont do an exeption with you to add french fries to your sandwich.

I was just disapointed by everything. Come on, you can go to a nice place to each with $15.00 other than a "authentic cuban restaurant"

The quaint restaurant always has tasty food and friendly service. I dine here often and have never been disappointed. This is the home of the true MOJITO. The paella is a really nice seafood dish and the ropa vieja is a must try. For lunch, the sandwiches are great, and the service is fast. Prices are easy on the wallet. The owner is a really friendly Cuban lady and makes the guests always feel welcome. Finish with a great cup of cafe latte!

Went with a group of eight to try this restaurant this past weekend. Was a little concerned b/c it was pretty much empty on a Saturday night which was not a good indicator. There were only two other couples in the place at 7:45 pm. The waitress was sweet and friendly - offering many suggestions/recommendations. Since the group was ethnically diverse, she also pointed out those items that were more traditional. I went light with a Cuban sandwich, while others had the Ropas Viejas and Enchiladas Camerones (not your usual Mexican style enchilada at all!). Our plates were flying around the table as everyone was passing their dish to others to sample (yeah, we're like that). The food was very tasty and definitely a different experience for all of us. Only criticism on the food was that the Ropas Viejas could have been slow cooked a little longer to be truly melt-in-your-mouth tender. The mojitos (freshly made) and margaritas were also great. We didn't have any desserts, but did have some Cuban coffees which were as I remember them. I can't wait to go back and try some of the other dishes. All in all, I found it to be very authentic, even reminiscent of some of my mom's cooking. Definite thumbs up!

Pros: Authentic Cuban Food, helpful attentive service, good drinks, clean and well lit

Cons: Strip Mall environment, limited parking, not really close to anything else

had lunch today, decent sandwich...owner launched a tirade on us when we left because we had parked behind the restaurant. He claims we blocked the door but there was no sign, two other unblocked doors, and very limited parking in front. Won't be back. Told him while he was launching his tirade that we were paying customers assuming he was upset that we were blocking legitimate customers, but turns out he was PO'd because it was his personal parking spot.

The Caribbean Cafe was introduced to me by a coworker of mine. She raved about how great the Cuban sandwiches were and with my love of food I just had to try it. I went there with her and I have to say the Cuban sandwich tasted what one should taste like. One should be able to taste the pork on it and that I did. I then because I liked it so much brought my boyfriend there and he was taken aback on how great the food was. We even seplurged on a freshly made mojito which is concocted when it is first placed on order. The only draw back is the place is very small so if you go at lunch expect a wait and for dinner go early in the evening. I am looking forward to going back and trying the Paella which I have been told is exceptional.

Carribean Cafe is probably one of the few places in the area that serves authentic Cuban cuisine. Tucked away in a strip mall off of Beltline Rd in Carrollton, this was such a surprisingly pleasant find. I had the Ropa Vieja which was tender and flavorful. My companion ordered the picadillo plate which, unlike at Mexican restaurants, was seasoned with olives. Both entrees were great and came with a choice of either black beans with white rice, or a mixture of both. A choice of fried crunchy plantains or sweet fried plantains also came with the entree. I will definitely be back to check out other options on the menu.

I have been a couple of cuban restuarants in Dallas, not very many here. Anyways I went to this place after I found out Little Havana had been closed down. Well there is no comparison! The food is delicious... paella, cuban sandwich, ropa vieja! Wonderful Bartender! The place is so small, but nice.
