After walking through Old San Juan all day, we needed a place to rest and have mojitos. This place was perfect. First of all, the service was great and the bartender Chris was a perfect host to talk about the local spots for tourists to go. The mojitos were divine, as were the shrimp taquitos. Literally stumbled upon this place... More

We shared a nice salad and a flat bread. Both were very good, but the best part of the meal was the churros with chocolate and ice cream for dessert.

My fiance and I stopped here when our cruise ship came into port, so that we could fuel up for an aimless walk around beautiful old San Juan.

Great food, classy atmosphere. The Chori Sliders were to die for, and the Rose Sangria was perfect on a warm evening. Close to the water and the shopping in Old San Juan.

This is a nice little restaurant with a limited menu. The food is good without any pretension. The service is friendly and efficient, plus the desserts were well executed!

TIP: don't forget to make a reservation, busy place!! Great place for an out door dinner, wonderful food, drinks, service and atmosphere. Strongly recommend the paella which feeds two comfortably and churros for desert.

Great location for a breeze and people watching. The staff were wonderful and very friendly. Food was "good." Nothing memorable, but solid lunch fare.
