Loved this place. The service was like none other. The owner/Chef was on Iron Chef so that is why we wanted to try it. Our waiter was friendly and had great recommendations. My son wanted a chicken ceasar salad however, the waiter was like do you like meat? You should try the pork chop. If you don't like it I... More

Delicious! Mojitos and mofongo. Amazing. The waitstaff is willing to explain food and suggest best dishes. Will definitely go back. The seafood mofongo is amazing and the churrasco comes in big portions.

cute atmosphere inside and out, and although the plates were truly unique, the food was good but not fantastic like we had hoped. For appetizers we sampled their take on tuna tacos and crab cakes wrapped in plantains- nice presentation and pretty tasty. For an entrée we split their paella, which was quite unique because instead of seafood it was... More

If you love pork bellies, you gotta try these. Sliced and fried and served with some kind of nectar of the gods. Just a few blocks West of La Concha along the Condado strip, this is an excellent restaurant. My dorado was a tad overcooked, but not missing any flavor. My wife had a skirt steak that was amazing. And... More

Ate dinner here on July 5 and the place was very busy at 8:30. We were promptly seated, and greeted by a wonderful waiter. I wish I could remember his name, but he was working all 3 floors, yet still took the time to explain each menu item to us. Started off with some good cocktails. This waiter brought us... More

We couldn't get a table in the dining room so we were seated at the bar. We had just landed and we were starving so we sat at the bar. And we discovered an amazing bartender Jenai! She made us fall in love with the place. She was excellent. My advice is to skip sitting at a table if Jenai... More

Up scale restaurant, with good service, gourmet dinner, nice view to the lagoon, romantic, with $8 valet parking. The bar is very good, the piña colada is excellent, I asked for gourmet fish, very good. The only strange thing was that they put our check after asking us if we wanted something else but we didn´t ask for the check.... More

We very much enjoyed our meal here. The fried coconut was delicious and the Tuna was cooked perfectly with a great seasoning. Relaxed and elegant atmosphere. The menu was in spanish and our server was very helpful in helping us translate. (Spanish 101 does not get you very far!) Every meal we had was incredible. My daughter had the paella... More
