This black and white picture was taken of the front of the restaurant around the time of opening in 1998. As you can see the character of the restaurant has remained exactly the same as the initial founder intended, and the aesthetics were improved, not changed. After over 1/4 million dollars of investments, everything is the same, just better!
The restaurant is now owned by two best friends who stepped in to invest and save the restaurant at a time when it was near closing. Today it is an anchor experience of Northern New Jersey, and has over 500 Five Star Ratings online.
If you have been here before, don’t hesitate to come again, we have preserved every detail from the initial founders vision.
“I’ll have the usual”
“What’s the special tonight?”
Main Dining room – a cozy seating area for 30 to 40 guests and frequently the unofficial dance floor for a special celebratory dance for 2. Decorated with rich fabrics, a hint of classic Havana and all of the rustic beauty of a place where you can fall in love again, or laugh about everything.
Romantic Hideaway – a dim lit soft intimate room that seats 6 to 12 guests depending on configuration. Decorated with mirrors, outfitted with candles and a combination of long bench chairs and wooden single seats, this areas is perfect for the private party that wants to be exclusive, but not tucked too far away from the action in the main dining room.
Cliffside Patio – an open airy Napa like patio that seats 15 to 25 depending on configuration. Open in the summer covered in soft night-lights, greenery, flowers and a waterfall. Glass covered in the winter, heated and glowing under the summer lights that mask the cold of the winter while reminding you of “that warm summer night” you were here last year.
