Hidden in a Midtown neighborhood, this low-priced Cuban restaurant is well worth seeking out.
At Las Palmeras, authentic Cuban favorites like Cuban sandwiches, black bean soup, fried plantains, tamales and rotisserie chicken are priced reasonable and served by a friendly and prompt waitstaff. We serve both lunch and dinner and all lunch specials are served with a salad or rice and beans. Located on a quiet neighborhood street in Midtown Atlanta, stop by for an authentic Cuban meal.
Tucked in the Midtown neighborhood Las Palmeras offers authentic Cuban dishes and a really great atmosphere. Look out for the Rotisserie Chicken which they only do on weekends and which sells out quickly - order early!

This is not the best Cuban food EVER. I think you'd have to go to Miami or Cuba for that. But, it is REALLY good food! The service is always good, the people are REALLY nice and the food is not as good as what I've had in Miami, but before I went there, it was a blind spot and I loved Los Palmeras. My husband and I still love this place and will go back. I don't get ropa vieja here. I'm American (strong Hispanic background, though) and my ropa vieja is ten times better. I have been very pleased with everything else on the menu, though. Try it! It's worth it and I don't think it's overpriced at all.

My husband and I were very excited to eat here after reading the other reviews. He grew up in Miami and is Cuban so we thought we had finally found a decent cuban restaurant in Atlanta. Well, we were wrong! The food was over priced, not authentic. They had fajitas on the menu - Cuban's don't eat fajitas unless they are eating at a Mexican restaurant! The plantains and yuca frita were decent and the ropa vieja wasn't the worst I have had but overall, this is not a good Cuban restaurant. Try Papi's or Coco Loco instead. We spent over $50 and only had one glass of wine between the 2 of us. We will not be going back in the future.

This mom & pop cuban restaurant is tucked away on a residential street in Midtown but well worth the adventure of finding it! The food is great and authentic. Moros (black beans and rice) are fantastic! There's even a little cuban store right next to the restaurant so you can bring a little Cuban flavor home with you.
