Our waiter, Gilberto, was on top of everything and made fantastic recommendations. The only reason I gave... read more

The restaurant was right across from our hotel and right in the middle of where all the action is. So the restaurant has a great margarita list and they are definitely worth having!!! The shredded chicken was phenomenal in all aspects but the best part was the salsa that you have to ask for its not the one they bring... More

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 questions, brought us everything we... 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
