bring seat cushions....

Ate dinner there 07/13. Saw it a couple of nights before with patrons dining so I figured must be ok. Well, I chose to eat in the air-conditioned rear section of the restaurant. The tables and chairs are old and rickety and the seat of the chairs are hard as rocks, I'm not exaggerating. After a few... read more

The place was dirty. The table was dirty, we asked to be cleaned up and they did not even understood it was dirty (with old food). The waiter brought "new" paper placematts and one had old food on it and he did jot even notice. We order an "alcapurria". amd it was horrible. We have eaten alcapurrias for more than... More

Ordered the pina colada served in a real pineapple. It was a nice idea and tasted very good. The guy makes it right at their sidewalk bar. While waiting for my order i got to see how it's made. Quite honestly the whole concept doesn't seam hygiene efficient by having it made at a make shift bar facing curbside. We... More

Don't bother, went with a group for dinner and the next morning as a couple for breakfast. Everyone commented that the food for dinner was passable and uninspiring. Gave this restaurant the benefit of doubt by going here for breakfast, but confirmed that there are better options elsewhere than at this establishment, save your money and your stomach will thank...

If you're good with splurging on a pina colada in a pineapple for $15. DO IT! It tasted wonderful and it was very fresh. The rest of the menu has good, typical Puerto Rican food but it is pricey. It is a very touristy area, but it sort of has a view of the beach so that is pretty nice!

I was tricked into paying double the cost!!! So what is the difference between empanado and empanadilla - $10 is the answer. And I had a bill of 44 and it should have only been 23!!!! When the food came, I asked the waitress if she was sure it was an empanadilla and she nodded and left. Granted I am... More

If you are staying in Condado this spot on ash ford is good for breakfast or perhaps lunch but not one of my dinner favorites. There are many better spots along Ashford nearby them also be careful in regard to payment my waitress did not count change very well 😖

We had an inexpensive breakfast here which was fine for the price --less than $50 for 6 people. Breakfast sandwiches are 3.25 to about 5 and are pretty good. Oatmeal was instant I think and not good. I liked the Western omelette at 5.95.

It's always open, so you can come in for decent Puerto Rican food anytime you want to. It's not the best food in the area, but it's pretty tasty and at great prices. Sometimes the service can be a little on the slow side, but that's pretty typical for these kinds of places on the island. Outdoor and indoor tables.
