Midday Saturday. Old Town San Juan. We went for lunch. Small table for two outside. Great seafood menu (BTW, the menu was very simple and easy to choose from). We got conch salad and a crab stew with rice and beans, fried plantains (tostado) plus beer. The service was great, fast, easy and no headaches. Loved that place. Not too... More

This restaurant was recommended by several local folks so we went there for lunch. We were a group of six but it only took them less than 15 minutes to seat us even during their busy lunch time. The hostess and waitress were both very attentive taking our drink and food orders quickly. Sadly, we did have to wait a... More

After trying mofongo everywhere else, this was by far the best place for it. I also had the best white sangria here which included a splash of passion fruit juice that made me ask for a refill. I ordered their skirt steak "churrasco" which i highly recommend. So glad I tried this place! :)

We had the Chicken Mufongo and the Skirt Steak; unbelievable! Make a reservation, and if you are luck like us, ask for the only one table on the second floor balcony overlooking the square. Great FOOD!

This was recommended by a Puerto Rican friend and was really excellent. Nice patio area, although we chose to eat inside. Everything we had - drinks, appetizers, entrees - was excellent, and the atmosphere and service were both great.

My wife and I visited this place based on Tripadvisor reviews we had a good experience but I wouldn't say it was the best. My wife had chicken mofongo which was very good and I had shrimp mofongo which could have been better. During my 9 day stay in PR, I have had better mofongos at lower prices but I... More

The chicken eggplant was to die for. My wife and mother both had it and it was great. I had the chicken parm and it was good but even better when I dipped it in my wife's meal. Expresso was great.

You won't go wrong picking this favorite plaza spot. Good food matched with good drink and an above average wine list.
