My wife and I stopped in for dinner, we were seated promptly by a very attentive wait staff. All the Puerto Rican staples were on the menu many with a twist. The plantain crusted Mahi Mahi with mango chutney was a nice change from fried or baked. Plates were warm and removed quickly when we were done. I would visit... More

This place is relatively small, so you may have to wait a few minutes for a table, but it's definitely worth it. The pork mofongo and grouper were delicious, and the whole red snapper was fresh and cooked to perfection. The service was also much better than other restaurants in the area, and their operation was obviously well organized.

My wife and I had dinner here the other night and had an experience that was worthy of sharing. We had an amazing server (Cesar) and the food was spot on. I strongly recommend the plantain chips with chicken, Steak Empanadas, and the Churrasco. Great portions and very authentic local cuisine.

Great, warm, inviting ambient, with a brief story of Desecheo island (for those curious enough). You can stay inside the restaurant or on their front balcony to enjoy puertorrican weather. Great food and excellent service. Affordable prices and lot of food for your money. Best and freshest "tostones" ever tasted on a puertorrican restaurant (I'm puertorrican with lot of experience...
