Ordered out. I wanted pork chunks and these melted in my mouth. They didn't come the the hard skin but they were tasty! Arroz Morros, delish. Don't care for sweet bananas but I ate them, that means alot. Next time I'll have to sit in and really enjoy the food!

I had the roast pork dish with yellow rice, steamed veggies and plantain as my sides. The pork was tender and flavorful. I had the sangria. Carafe was $10. I was going to order the paella but they said the portion was big and I had trouble finishing the pork! Good recommendation from the waiter. Atmosphere was nice and staff... More

Fantastic restaurant which was recommended by our shuttle driver who picked us up from the airport. The service was extremely good with the staff going out of their way to be helpful. The food was amazing and so was the Mojito. It was difficult to find this restaurant but well worth it when we finally found it. The food is... More

Wanted to try something different, and we're sure happy we did! Great food, great service, good Sangria, but don't order a Mojito if you drink them often....it was below average which was disappointing! :( If you don't want Olive Garden, go to Padrino's and try their Pallella! Loved it!!!

This was our third time at this wonderful restaurant. The food is consistently good (I like the arroz con pollo), the service is excellent, the menu is varied and interesting, and the atmosphere is relaxing and friendly. Because it is located in the corner of the Fountains Shopping Center, it is not easy for first timers to locate, but don't... More

This is food like we had in Puerto Rico! Not spicy - just flavourful. We both had the churasco steak and had ordered beans but forgot they went well with rice. We asked our server and they arrived in about 5 minutes. Great service and wonderful food! It was a Friday night and they had live music, and his guitar... More

Large, family restaurant with patrons varying from high-chair age to seniors. Good food, service, and wine. Chicken livers were a nice treat! Wine drinkers: try the Ergo Rioja by the bottle (you can take home leftovers, if you have any) - it is wonderful and reasonably priced.
