Great food , amazing service, great ambiance. I was born in Cuba raised in the USA ; this place reminded me of the Cuba my mom always talked to me about so that I would not forget my roots. One of my new favorite places in Charlotte. The whole experience was perfect, the owners took the time to stop by our table and greeted us. After meeting them you can tell that they are very passionate about this place and that shows in the decor and authenticity of the food.

Great flavors!. Excellent food and atmosphere. The service was exquisite and drinks out of this world. Dont be fooled by the price, its totally worth it. I was told the menu was still being worked on to accommodate other items at a lower price so that everyone could afford the experience.

This new restaurant is an excellent representation of the authentic Cuban cuisine. Great food selection in the menu, excellent presentation on the dish, and the service is top of the line. Once inside the new restaurant, you feel that youve been transported back in time with a well thought out floor layout and design. Next time Im back in town, I will definitely pay them a visit. Thumbs way up.

I'm originally from Washington D.C. I grew up there during the 90s when culture was rich and abundantly prevalent in many parts of the district. Diversity and an appreciation of culture resonates with me to this day! To be able to experience that same feeling at El Puro was amazingly fulfilling. This place touches on every aspect of cultural diversity: authentic food, decor, music, and hospitality. This place will most definitely become a regular "experience" for us to frequent. To the owners, DON'T CHANGE A THING - por favor!

Amazing experience! This Cuban restaurant is like no other in the South Charlotte area, as a matter of fact, it's the only one of it's kind that offers the kind of experience I had. Live music? I mean come on! This restaurant is the definition of authenticity. I went through some of the reviews and read people complaining about the price vs portion. My advise is to stay and cook at home if you can't afford to eat out. Just the other day I had an $18 dollar crab cake at a different restaurant (the size of a golf ball). We have to consider that inflation is at an all time high of 6.2%, which has caused restaurant prices to increase as much as 15% on average. Not to mention the drastic wage increase restaurants had to forgo just to be able to find workers. What this family owned restaurant is doing is taking a tremendous risk in these uncertain times to introduce to you a part of their culture, to bring you something new, to make you feel alive in these stressful times. If you are looking for McDonald prices, this is not the place you should be visiting. Shoutout to the staff for making me feel welcome. I will definitely be returning with friends and family.
