Family run restaurant in Bayamon, very close to "Parque de las Ciencias" and the Shopping Malls. They have the typical Christmas menu available every day. Besides, they offer daily specials and other choices. You need a car from San Juan Tourist Area. Tasty food at reasonable prices. Catering available on request.

Excellent service, the food is very tasteful. I live in Bayamon and is one of my favorite place. On social occasions celebrate outside of the restaurant with music and cultural events

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.
