lovely service and great food! The brunch is amazing and a great value, it has a fixed cost of about $20 and everything is fresh.

I could not tell apart the texture and flavor between the shrimp and fish; I had expected fresh seafood but what I got tasted like bland frozen... More

We had a great happy hour stop. Our bartender Onairam was the best, he knows how to make a drink. The happy hour specials were excellent variety. We will definitely go back.

Me and the wife have two favorite places in old San Juan and this is number one. Such great fresh food and amazing service. Get the fixed menu it is filling and hits all the right notes.
