Good food, convenient location

Staying at La Concha this was and easy walk across the street for some good Mexican food. A friend and I went and enjoyed everything we ate. We both had different drinks that were all good and we asked for the "mas picante" salsa and that was delicious as well. Our server was helpful, answered... read more

Actually it was just steps away from La Concha Resort in San Juan, Puerto Rico. But was an outstanding Mexican Restaurant. Their guacamole was fresh and spicy. The salsa was fresh and just right. They had a good selection of Mexican beer. We chose pork burrito, enchiladas and tacos. All were delicious. There was no rushing here either. And though... More

The carnitas tacos and steak tacos are outstanding. The service is excellent and the margaritas are perfectly made. Live mariachi on Sundays. I go very often with my husband and every time my family visits, they request to go here.

The food was very good and the server tried his best to serve us. The owner/manager was too busy eating at his perch near the front door to process our check for us to leave and we had to sit there a full 30 minutes till he moved his fingers.

Food was traditional Mexican style, service was ok and this was the only place during our trip where the wait staff didn't speak any English which makes it difficult to order/ask questions about menu.

This was quite a find on our second trip here.Really fresh flavor and dishes we hadn't had before. We are from California which has some really good authentic Mexican food. The tangerine margaritas were delicious (rocks, not frozen) and the salsa had a great slightly sweet flavor. We had tacos barbacoa (lamb, and only for lamb lovers) and Alameres Res... More

The food here was delicious, with nice size portions. The guacamole was the only disappointment - not bad just not as good as the rest of the food here. Drinks were also really good. Atmosphere was really nice and not too crowded. We liked it so much we came back another night - high praise from us on vacation.

Good food; just 50% high in prices. Was better 10 years ago when small... Margaritas are good as well, just too expensive. See the theme?

Extremely close 30-second walk from La Concha in Condado. We ate outside which probably hampered service a little. It took a couple trips to finally get table service, refills on water were slow in coming, and it seemed like the food took a little while though the place wasn't too busy this Sunday night. A guy arrived (though he was... More
