First your friend, then you are my customer!! Thiis is the owner's motto.

Very good food, outstanding service and a great ambiance. The owner plays the guitar and sings popular sons in Spanish. If you want to have a great time, you should visit el gigante dormido. Try the pasteles; these are made by the owner's mother in her home in Adjuntas.

Good food at a reasonable price. Personnel is courteous and the attentions were as expected in spite of a long wait for the food. Limited parking.

Menú is very typical but with much better taste than many others. Worth going again. Owner is usually there as host. Which makes sure all dining experience goes well. Very friendly atmosphere.

My wife and I stopped in here on our first night in Puerto Rico. The owner welcomed us at the door and gave us a night of great food, good music, excellent sangria, and most importantly a lasting memory!
