He is often disappointed with the quality... More

My boyfriend and I ate dinner here during our week in San Juan. The hostess, the sommelier, and our waitress were all friendly and attentive without being overly attentive. Our food was delicious, especially our sausage-stuffed squid appetizer. Their individual pizzas are large, with a delicious thin crust. The prices were reasonable (at least, from a New York perspective). The... More
