The 90 Miles Story

The Gonzalez family came from Cuba on June 13, 1980 on a shrimp boat from the Mariel Harbor Cuba. After 15 hours in a stormy black sea they finally reached Key West, only 90 Miles from their beloved Cuba.

They immediately started working towards their American dream. Their dedication has given them the opportunity to be able to share their essence of Cuban culture and authentic Cuban cuisine right from their kitchen table to you.

They hope that at the end of your visit they have made a cultural impact on you that will make you come back to share it with family and friends.
