Best Pina Colada

They serve a pina colada inside a carved out pineapple. It was the best pina colada I ever had but it was kind of pricey. I ordered the chuletas fritas (fried pork chops) which were also very good.

Service is great but the food was not very tasteful. We ate there for breakfast and I was not impressed. But overall, they have good service.

The Latin Star came recommended by hotel staff as good local food. It was in walking distance from our hotel so we decided to give it a try. It was about 3:00p.m. There were just a few people in the restaurant at that time so we were able to get in immediately. The restaurant is small with a great outside... More

Cuban sandwiches were terrible, huge loaf like pressed somewhat bread with just meat and cheese, no mustard, no pickles, no seasoning, and no taste. The rest of my group was less than pleased, drinks of any type are all ridiculously priced and the menu is highly priced from what i saw as well. I would not recommend nor go back.

The food was mediocre. My biggest complaints: 1. Manager was rude and unprofessional. 2. They charge for water (where I'm from, water is free unless you ask for bottled water. 3. The fancy piña coladas were way too expensive ($15) and weren't worth the price. Also, gratuity is automatically added to your bill. Take your money somewhere else.

Great breakfast spot!! Wonderful cafe con leche, and the fresh pineapple is amazing. French toast was great, eggs cooked perfectly, and their hot sauce is excellent. Stop by in the evening for a great (but pricey) piña colada served in a pineapple!

The staff was rude and unpredictable. The chicken we got was green and after the food was served no one came back. We had to go up to get our check and to our surprise, the bill already added 18% gratuity. No wonder why they are bad servers.

The food tasted like it was mass produced without any care or pride. The service was slow the waiters were running frantically trying to do more than was humanly possible. It was NOT cheap nor was it good value for money . Our most disappointing meal on San Juan and the most expensive for nothing. Don't get caught by the... More

I had lunch there with my wife. They served us not only once but twice MOLDY BREAD. If you enjoy eating last night left over rice, then go for it. I was not pleased. The staff seems not too pleasent to be there. Also they are not native to the island. I would not return to this place.
