Sangria to Flan ~ Delicious!

Our party of four was greeted and seated within minutes. Our server was outstanding: He was very attentive, answered all questions, and offered recommendations. I read other reviews that negatively commented on the staff. While I did see a hostess that might warrant those comments, that did not... read more

Too expensive, price is not worth the food. The food is ok, just not worth what they charge for it. Paid $17 for one piece of chicken breast filet and sauce. The fried plantain I ordered was 5 small bites. I would not waste my money here.

Had great Puertorrican food, the Navideño plate: pastel, arroz con gandules and pernil for $12. Food was amazing and good quality for the price. BEWARE of ordering desserts!!!! I was charged over $5 dollars for a piece of boxed tembleque, worst one I have ever had, and cost almost half of what I payed for my dinner.

I was craving guineos en escabeche, quesitos, empañándolas, etc. The food was excellent and their service as well. We'll be back when we move to Florida!!

I took my wife, 2 kids, uncle and aunt and we enjoyed this restaurant very much. Everyone loved the food especially my wife's uncle who could not stop talking about the mofongo y el caldido de pollo. The server Lynette was fantastic. We live in S.C but will be back to eat here on every visit.

I asked my hotel where to find a good Puerto Rican place for dinner. The girl at the front desk, Puerto Rican by the way, said there were none. I googled it and BAM, Guavate, I drove about 8 miles but it sure was worth it, the staff was great and the food was authentic and great. I actually can't... More

I'm currently in business in the Orlando area and decided to reunite with some family members. I was really excited to hear that Orlando had a Puerto Rican restaurant! What a disappointment! I couldn't wait to get to my hotel room to write the review. First of all, their staff is rude, plain and simple. Not an ounce of professionalism.... More

We went with our inlaws who are from Puerto Rico and loved our meal. It is a small place so get there early as they do not take reservations. The food is amazing- it impressed mom and dad, which says a lot. The service if friendly and quick. Only complaint was the toilet in the ladies room was not working... More

This place is awesome, Puerto Rican food at it's best! In my opinion. The restaurant is small, very clean & ambience is nice. They play old Spanish Music which keeps it very authentic not loud, so you can speak to the person sitting with you. I had Mofongo Brujo - green plantains ripe plantains and cassava stuffed with pork My... More
