We had a great time at this restaurant. the food was great and the service was awesome. The owner met us personally and even played the guitar and sang to our daughter. Everyone there was very nice and it was a nice dinner after a long day. Would recommend.

it is a place of Puerto Rican food, the atmosphere is not good in terms of decor, they have live music on weekends, the owner serves you personally but the food was what I was, is not the best, I do not think again!

My mother-in-law is from PR, so I was hoping the food would be as good as I had read. Well, it was exceptional....and the owner, Mr.... More

Words can not describe the service my family received. The food, music, staff etc etc. We went from a sad emotional moment to a indescribable happiness. Thank You so much Edwin for taking our pain away.

As a couple from NC, we loved this taste of Puerto Rico. Its a cozy, romantic, authentic spot. The owner sat down with us, talked us through the menu and aided our selection. Live music added verve to the small house environment. A few couples got up and danced as part of their dinner, and the restaurant owner jumped in... More
