My Father and I had several great meals here on our recent visit to Puerto Rico. It was less touristy than many of the restaurants on the main road in Condado, which we liked. Both the service and food were awesome. Portions were generous, our personal favourite was the mofongo dish which is a local specialty. It was so good... More

Took our two Year old grandtwins and they loved the fried cheese while my husband and I delighted in the churrasco skirt steak. The pinot and Cab wine by the glass was very good. Our Waiter was great and the Kids were sooo happy! Great extensive menú. We would go back: Gave it a four because it was the second... More

Our experience at this restaurant was enjoyable but I wouldn't rave about it. The food was good but not special and the portions were substantial. I was delighted that they served chimichurri sauce with our appetizers of sausages and empanadas (not what they were called on the menu). That was a treat. I had a meal that was essentially a...

For my 23rd birthday, my family and I travelled to Puerto Rico. My parents were here about seven months ago, and I heard nothing but great things about this restaurant. Naturally, I had to check it out for myself and decided to eat there for my birthday. We started off with the fried cheese, which was sinful and delicious. For... More

This restaurant was overpriced. I paid $50 for two people. The Puerto Rican sampler (an appetizer big enough to share) was all deep-fried and everything tasted as though it had been cooked in the same vegetable oil as their crab dishes, so all tasted and smelled alike. Very gross! Other dishes might be delicious, but stay away from that one.

Had dinner here last night after being out all day on a tour. The food was awesome and Jesus, our waiter, was very friendly and personable. Will have to come here again on my next trip to Puerto Rico!

great food, prices to match, waiter responsive but not hovering over us. Wish we had eaten there three times instead of only once.

Food is good, overpriced but so is everyone else in the area. Service is good with valet parking. Good place for a family dinner or lunch .

Visited on the 24th of March this restaurant. Let me start off with the fact that the restaurant was empty. The waiter spoke some english but half of us spoke spanish. The service was slow. I don't understand why? The bar was empty and the bartender was just staring around like we didn't exist. When the food arrives it was... More
