has been 30 years since El Exquisito Restaurant
was simply a cafeteria adjacent to the old Teatro
Tower and only sat 16 people. The cafeteria
was purchased by Heliodo Coro and his previous
partner, Wilfredo Perez in 1974. Together they
worked to transform the 16 person cafeteria
into a restaurant that sat 55 people. Since
that day in 1977 the quality and freshness of
our food has satisfied our client's palates.
It Is very admirable to see how one small place,

led way to our most recent addition of a new
locale with a capacity of 75 persons in an even
more welcoming environment. Following the remodeling,
the Exquisito restaurant started forming a strong
character and our clientele doubled so much
that we sometimes are not able to accommodate
all our guests.
1995, the New Times selected Exquisito Restaurant
as "The Best Cuban Food in Miami",
the same year Exito Magazine selected us as
"The Best Cuban Creole in Miami".
The following year Exito Magazine also named
us as "The Best Tamales in Miami"
and this year New Times recognized us as "The
Best Fried Pork Chunks in Miami", in their
"The Best of Miami Edition".
that is left to say is that our restaurant guarantees
our clients freshness, quality, and of good
attitude, allowing our clientele to become part
of the amazing family of the "Exquisito
