Love the good here! I tried a couple of things here and I must say everything is really good! It's a little crowded due to the restaurant being so popular yet a little small but it's worth the wait! The churrasco is very good and the Chillo al ajillo as well! Staff is very friendly when you sit down, although... More

This place is the closest to authentic mofongo (off of the island of Puerto Rico) that I have found in the USA. Very good.. Nice atmosphere, albeit it's rather small.. Not anything fancy, but classy in a basic way.. Nice occasional visit, since I'm a local..

Just came back from a vacay to PR and am already missing it. My sweet husband surprised me one evening after work with food from this restaurant so we could recreate, relive and redo PR to prolong our vacay with one more night. Great food, close to authentic. It's quite a drive from where we live, but worth the trip.... More

Food was delicious. Service was friendly and helpful. Had shrimp in creole sauce and it was great. Wish it was closer to tourist area. Had tembleque and it was delish. Will gladly return.

As a 100% disabled veteran, I will NOT be spending my money there unless they do something DRASTIC to make up their blatant disregard for disability laws toward the individual whose civil right were abused. The woman with the service dog who was thrown out should have called police to acquaint the restaurateurs with the law. But then again, who... More

I went to Guavate with my family to celebrate my grandfather's birthday. We are Puerto Rican so we had very high standards for our food, which were met. I ordered shrimp mofongo with bacalaoitos & maduros and everything was delicious. However, our waiter was simply rude and arrogant & treated us as if we were a burden.

We came here with my daughter who relocated from NYC on May 27, 2014. She had previously been there and wanted us to try it. The service was fast and courteous. The food was excellent. I grew up in the Bronx and my friends were Puerto Ricans and their mothers' cooked this food EVERYDAY and I was there eating it.... More

This place was recommended by several people so we finally drove to check it out! WOW! Clean, polite, well paced, fresh and the staff was awesome! Even without all of those qualities the food stands alone. I was truly impressed.

I went to Guavate with my friends on a friday at 6pm. We waited an hour to find a table after complaining many times because they won't assign a table unless the whole party is there (there was only missing one person of my group). The place is very small. Food was not what I expected. It was greasy and... More
