Excellent food and great ambience.

The service and food were spectacular here. Of course we were a week beyond Easter so there really were not many people in the restaurant. It is a quaint space with beautiful local artwork all over.

Great place for gourmet Puerto Rican cuisine. Love the decor and Spanish flare. Good wall of wines, but beware, reds are not temp-controlled. Try the rice dishes where they excel as well as mofongo and tostones on the side. Start with Black bean soup and end with Flan, and you will be very happy.

Fascinated with the food and great wine in this restaurant. Variety of wines is awesome. I tried a fish named Capitan which I recommend.

We ordered chicken stew, chicken and rice, croquetas, and plantain soup. All dishes tasted amazing...and this comment is from a Puerto Rican. The staff were very nice and the art beautiful.

My boyfriend and I had dinner here Sunday night. Everything was amazing. Service was great. They even made me a banana drink that was not on the menu. I had the filet with wine sauce and my bf had the pork chops. The rice and beans are a must. We had shrimp cocktail and croquettes for an appetizer. We even... More

Other than the charming ambience, there is not much to like here. It's one of the priciest restaurants in the area but the food was subpar. What really bugged us was the service. We walked in and stood waiting for about 15 minutes for anybody to greet us. Then they only had two waiters in the entire restaurant that would... More

From the minute you walk into this old fashion homey entree way, and the smells hit you, you know are in the right place. With a ambiance that is sadly no longer found too often any more, you are taken in with friendly service, and a traditional Puerto Rican menu. The grilled Pork chops were wonderful, the lobster sweet, the... More

Lovely homey atmosphere with local art on the walls. Menu that had it all from meat to fresh fish of the day. My grouper was perfect as was my husbands pork chop. Shrimp cocktail started the meal and chorizo in wine. Vanillabflan was the perfect ending. If in Dorado it's a must go!
