The food is ok and way overpriced. The seafood rice is not what it used to be, now they make it with parboiled rice.
Tostones are good.
Mazas de puerco y congri is good
The prices here goes up every time someone in the family buys a new

Located on Pico Boulevard, El Colmao is a family owned restaurant offering authentic Cuban food. I've been going there for years and love it. The Palomilla ( breaded steak dish) is one of my favorites along with the ropa vieja. They also serve Paella but the wait for it is about 30 minutes (It's worth the wait) so be sure not to be extremely hungry if you order it. Have a jupina (pineapple soda) with your meal, and afterwards have a cortadito (cuban espresso) for a burst of energy. The portions are substantial, and the prices are reasonable.

I have paid more for Cuban food that is not this good. I will go back to try more of the menu.

I suppose this place would be a dime a dozen in Miami, but it is a find in LA. a geat place for a casual LA lunch on a day when you are

This is a Cuban Landmark. My Parents have taken me their since I was a child. The food is always fresh and the lunch specials are great! It is the best food for your money. Try the Arroz con Pollo or the Bistec Empanizado, it is all

Pros: inexpensive, secured parking, lots of food

Being Cuban, I'd say this is perhaps the best Cuban restaurant in Los Angeles for down-home "abuelita" style comida. The Wednesday special, "Pollo fricase," is worth a pilgrimage for lunch. Have a Materva with your meal, have a heated
