When we visit, we stay near Playa Norte but always make at least one visit to La Bruja in the colonias. The food is fresh, well-prepared and inexpensive, and the owner is always friendly. In our four visits we've never had a bad meal here.

We were told by a local that interested in a restaurant with very fresh fish this was the place. We were also cautioned that it was not fancy. We are much more food centric than atmosphere focused. Not only was the fresh wonderfully prepared so were all the other appetizers and entree's that the four of us had. We brought... More

Stumbled upon this little joint when I was volunteering down the street. I have been told about this place 3xs since my last visit this past May and decided no better time to try than the convenient present. So glad I did. I had a light lunch and practically had the place to myself. I ordered the queso fundido with... More

This is one stop that everyone has to make, great service, great food, and and a nice location. Guess you can call that your entertainment as you eat. Every meal that we have ever had is really great. Great home cooked meals.

If you're in the La Gloria neighborhood, stop here for lunch or dinner. Good food, good service, good prices.

Like not good in any way. Food service decor are all lacking and that's me being nice. I can't believe the good reviews this place get. Dismal everything. Someone explain one thing they liked and why. Too many mindless reviews

Took a cab here several times and always timed it when they were closed. Gave it one last chance and they were open. Poor service and the most disappointing meal we had during our four week stay.

Chicken enchiladas, garlic fish, cold beer! Owner is super nice. As with most restaurants on the island, it does not have AC and is a small family operation so don't be in a hurry. Part of the charm.
