We went for a light dinner. It was noisy and the service was slow. My dinner was served almost cold, but after the long wait, I just wanted to get out of there. My daughter had a nice salad.

We stopped here for lunch because of the good reviews on Trip Advisor. What a mistake. I ordered a vegetable burrito and my kids got enchaladas and chicken tacos. I was told there were no veggies left (it was 1:15pm), so I changed my order to a salad. Then I was told there were veggies after all. 40 min later... More

Excellent restaurant, Andre was a superb waiter. We highly recommend it. The food was absolutely delicious! Right in the heart of old San Juan on a lovely historic street.

The restaurant staff was helpful and was able to accommodate all 20 of us. Food was good but they fell short of avacados so no guacamole etc. Overall, s great experience and good food.
