This place has a good range of options of American and puerto rican food. I had stuffed chicken with rice and beans. Both were very good. Service was slow and our server barely said two words to us except to say "are you ready to order". We had to ask another waiter for our check after waiting 5 to 10... More

When in San Juan, go for the local flavor. The restaurant offers a range of Puerto Rican dishes. For example, there are numerous mofongos available. I loved yucca mofongo the best. For the less adventurous there are also meat, fish and pasta dishes. The staff is very friendly, but the service is extremely slow (especially if you come from NYC)... More

Not the worst service, not the best. Chef was very friendly and gave us great attention, but not very satisfied with the waitress. Compare prices and service to other places before deciding.

Delicious restaurant in a strip mall type shopping center. I had never had Mofongo before so I decided to be daring and try it - its mashed plaintain stuffed with meat, in my case skirt steak. It was awesome! This is where the locals go and apparently the place has been there over 20 years so they must be doing... More

This place is right by where my husband and I are staying and every weekend we go there for a hearty breakfast. I usually get the breakfast special that comes with eggs, Puerto Rican toast (which is thinner slices of bread) and hash browns. Oh man, these hash browns are delicious. They are a mix between potatoes and sweet potatoes.... More

Best Puerto Rican Food on the Island!! The place can get crowded so don't get stressed if you have a little wait, have a Piña Colada in the meantime. It is worth any wait. I've been coming here for over 20 years. Love, Love, Love it!

I am not one to give bad reviews but this place was terrible! Service was horrible, food arrived cold, we felt ignored and were all extremely disappointed.

Found this hole in the wall restaurant by a recommendation from the hotel staff. Good Puerto Rican food at reasonable prices. My conch mofongo (sp?) could have been spicier but there was abundant conch. We love finding the little places locals frequent.

Recommended by our taxi driver to get local food in isla verde. Service was good. Got the pork mofongo and seafood paella and both were authentic tasting. Prices are affordable. Would recommend.
