We had a fabulously fun girls night out here. Definitely got very happy with the Mojito. Food was good too. Just avoid the crab cake. I got the worst hive because of it.

I agree with several of the other reviewers, the food here is good (not fabulous, but tasty -- I had the skirt steak and empanadas) and the drinks are yummy.

It's a fun experience and good place to meet friends.

After hearing the hype on this restaurant, I decided to go with some of my friends for lunch. Turned out to be so-so at best. I had the cuban sandwich and the pork was really fatty. I've heard the mojitos are amazing, but from my personal experience I would not go for the food.

If you are looking for Latin food, you can try Palo Alto Sol across the street, which is much superior.

This is another great restaurant that you can find on California Avenue in Palo Alto. We usually go there for evening meals. During the day California can be very hard to find a parking space. I know, I have done my share of circling around. This food here is wonderful.

The food at La Bodeguita is good, not spectacular, but good. I highly recommend trying the specials, but that is because their basic menu items rarely change and I've gotten bored of them. Portions aren't overwhelming like at other restaurants. The best feature of the restaurant is the drinks, in particular the mojito and the Hemingway. They also have a humidor in the back where you can purchase and smoke cigars (but you won't smell any smoke in the restaurant or bar.)

This is a really fun place with a great bar. I recommend ordering the skirt steak it is delicious. This has a cuban menu with lots to choose from and a fun place to go with a group.

No wonder Hemingway liked Cuba so much. This place is absolutely delicious and worth working your way down the entire menu, starting with apps, moving on to an entree, then enjoying coffee or wine with your dessert.

Try to stick with the Cuban offerings (i.e., don't order the black bean burger you can get just about anywhere in California). Eat the plaintains! Just don't call them bananas.

The oyster shooters and crispy little croquetas are good ways to start, but don't let them distract you from ordering a mojito. Mmmmm, mojitos. They have a decent beer list as well. No matter the drink, it will help wash down your spicy pork masitas or ropa vieja.

It can be cold (okay, freezing) if you are seated near the windows at the front of the restaurant, so try to sit near the back if you're going during the fall, winter or spring months.
