This restaurant was recommended by one of the staff at The Intercontinental. We were looking for something within walking distance. It's hidden in a little strip mall beside a souvenir shop, but don't let the outside, unassuming facade throw you off. By far the best wait staff who were eager to tell you the specialties of the day and explain... More

This place wasnt bad, but it wasnt good either. I ordered carne frita with rice and beans. Im Cuban so we take some pride in our black beans, and these were undoubtedly out of a can. The rice was sticky and old. The prices were high and I think they tried to be fancier than they had a right to... More

As an addendum to my previous review....... the food was salty. Very salty. I needed my tap water refilled a few times. The white rice and beans were what was most salty. Maybe stay away from that.

Located an easy walk from the Intercontinental Hotel this local restaurant had fantastic omelettes, pancakes and of course Bloody Mary and Mimosas! You can't beat the prices either.

The service was great. The food was mostly true Puerto Rican which I re-tried. Liked some not like some but that was to taste. With all the locals there, I figure it was a great restaurant! Easy to walk to from the Embassy Suites and other locales.

This restaurant is right across from the Hotel Intercontinental in Isla Verde. It has authentic Puerto Rican cuisine that tastes great and is very affordable.

Recommended by employee of Embassy Suited Hotel in San Juan, PR. The service was a little slow the first night (restaurant was very crowded) but the quality of the food made up for the wait. Delicious! We came back a second time during our visit.

Food was delicious and the service was great. They have PRican food and anything else you may want. It is located in a small shopping area. Could use some remodeling but the food was great and it was packed for lunch. They have a large seating area though so we did not wait.

Bad service. Bad drinks. Bad atmosphere. Terrible mofongo. Just a tourist trap I regret trying. Didn't try the breakfast so can't comment on that. But as for dinner avoid at all cost.
