We were happy to find this place. The mofongo was delicious and the fact that the owner praised his wife's cooking was a nice touch!

Best dining in the "locals" part of Luquillo! Love the family owned kitchen. You can tell the wife whom is the chef cooks from the heart and that her husband is a wonderful people pleaser. The food was so tasty and cooked perfectly. I had the red snapper with fresh garlic sauce and garlic smashed plantains and my other half... More

Luis, the owner, and the rest of the wait staff were incredibly welcoming. The food was top-notch. We had the mofongo with skirt steak and the conch in garlic sauce. The mofongo was one of the best we had (and we visited the kiosks too) and the conch was truly excellent. The food had that home-cooked feel and taste. I... More

The restaurant itself is relatively small and it apparently helps to call in advance, otherwise you might be waiting for a table or asked to come back later. The food was excellent (especially the seafood). The owner, Luis, was very personable and fun. If you're in Luquillo make it a priority to try this place.

Husband and wife team. Wife is the cook and her food is outstanding. We had the red snapper and also the shrimp in creole sauce. Very yummy. Also the gumbo was excellent. We were the only ones in the restaurant on this Wednesday early dinner. Another party of three came in as we were finishing. The owner was very talkative... More

Food and service were outstanding. I had one of the best lobster salad with tostones ever. I will definitely return there soon.

This is an out-of-the-way family run restaurant that will not disappoint you. The food is fresh and reasonabily priced. The owner serves customers and his wife is the cook. On our visit service was impecable. Food is made to order therefore there is some wait time but well worth it in my opinion. We'll be back soon!!

My husband, our 16-year old son, my 30-year old step daughter and I ate here the last Monday in December. We arrived at 8 pm and got in line behind another party of 4 who had been waiting for an hour. Apparently other restaurants were closed because it was a Monday so they got more business than normal. We also... More

Pros: Very kind owner. Speaks decent english. good food at somewhat decent prices ($13-25). Fresh fish. Cons: We had a long wait (more than 3 hours) but we were told that it was the busiest they had ever been. We had to wait in the gift shop which was pretty hot. The restaurant was clearly overwhelmed and isn't used to... More
