WONDERFUL COMBINATION

We had a similar experience as the recent reviewer "Anonymous1024"; the red heady lady who was letting folks in was rude. Really rude. She seemed way in over her head at controlling the mini mob at opening. She needs 3x5 cards to remember what to say, night after night, really. After she seated everyone, we went to the bar. She...

This place is about a block away form the famous Plazita. The food is just some of the best around there. Prices are just right. The mojitos here are just to die for. It is a small place if you go later that 8pm, plan to stay around the area, specially Thursday- Saturday.

More hype than worth in this restaurant experience. The food is less than average for the price, service is not that good either, RUDE personnel, tight quarters, very limited A/C seating capacity. Had heard much about this place. The lines are endless. Poor location. Typical tourist trap, peddled by hotel concierges. Big disappointment. Overheard waiter telling the table next to... More

Excellent food but its always packed and don't take reservations. The place is very small, as is the bar area, so you have sometimes to wait in the bar, if you can find a spot, for la long time.

Always is a extremely good experience, food and the personnel exceed the expectations. It's a Tropical Local Fine Cuisine Restaurant. One of the best in town.

Went here for dinner over memorial day weekend. It was probably the best meal I have ever had on any trip. My fiancé and I could not get over how good everything was. We had fantastic service - our server was very helpful with recommendations. I would strongly suggest asking them for what is the best appetizer/entrée when you visit... More

Small, unique eclectic food. The menu changes daily based on what is fresh. Come early or expect to wait, but they will take you cell number and you can go to the clubs on the next street and await their call.

José Enrique is a fusion puertorican restaurant. I love is food and the service is incredible. The waiter knows the terms and every item on the menu. Is a plus, because the service is key when you sell food. Thanks for make me the best "chillo frito" I ate in my life!
