We stopped here yesterday morning for breakfast and the staff was courteous and friendly. This is a good place to start a busy day of walking and sightseeing. Prices are very reasonable.

Huge variety of puertorrican food in this menu. All dishes are exquisite. You'll need additional time to make a decision. They have the best rice and beans in Old San Juan, so this side is a must, also matched with a side of tostones or mofongo with the protein of your preference.

Never judge a book by its cover. Or the illustration in the tour guide. I had breakfast food here. VERY average. My 12 year old can do just as good. The best part of the dining experience was the very cute and diva-ish toddler two tables away. OMG she was very cute and is going to be a handful.

This place was great! My fiancé & I ate here while on vacation. The food was excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful. Their drinks are very reasonable & they actually put a fair amount of alcohol in it unlike most of the places in the area. The staff explained what things were on the menu & even told... More

After dropping off our bags and checking in at the cruise terminal we decided to walk to the restaurant for lunch. After a 10 minute walk we actually smelled the food before we noticed we were approaching the restaurant. The restaurant decor was nothing fancy but it was very clean. The food was priced right and we were definitely happy... More

This place was great!! It was packed, which is a great sign, and we all loved the menu choices. And did I mention the great prices? Very affordable food. But of course the reason for going is because of their food which is utterly fantastic!

This is the place to go if you're looking for traditional local food at an affordable price. The atmosphere is more like a diner/cafeteria. There's nothing modern about this place, but the food is very good. I had the Bistec de Lomillo which is topped with grilled onions. It's served with 2 sides. I chose to have it with arroz... More
