lovely food, well worth a visit

We ate here 3 times during our weeks holiday. The service was attentive, the atmosphere was relaxed and the food was delicious. The chips were divine, and our children thought the pizzas were the best they have ever had! We had Paella on our last night and wished we had ordered it before. All staff... read more

We like good, freshly cooked local food, well presented with pleasant but not over fussy service. This restaurant ticked every box, thank you for a very nice meal and evening in your establishment. Well worth a visit.

We visited this restaurant on the last night of our holiday, and we were definitely not disappointed. The service was excellent from the start, the waiters were prompt and professional, and they couldn't have done any more for us. The quality of the food was also superb, simple and good food well cooked. We will be back in the summer!!

Good quality food served with veg, rice & choice of Canary potatoes, jkt or Chips. Family of four & we all had a starter & main course but had no room for desert. Friends of ours were not wrong in recommending this restaurant. A little more pricey, views of a car park but lovely food & friendly waiters. Worth a... More

Excellent food and excellent service! The waiters here make it a unique personal experience and are full of energy. Extensive menu and the chef is happy to accommodate should there be something you can't find on the menu.

The food was very good, and we enjoyed the meals at this restaurant. The waiters seem to work very hard, and they tried to make my brother and his family,... More

When I questioned the waiter without even examining my plate he said it was beef steak... Now I have been a meat eater all my life but to be served up pork as steak really in... More

Traditional restaurant serving individually cooked meals. Ramon, Ernesto and Mimon made us feel really welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them even when we requested food that was not on the menu. We have been dining in this restaurant for more than 10 years and always come back for fine food whenever we visit Puerto Rico. Keep up... More
