BUSINESS IS NOW CLOSED

The owner has closed the business after 3 years. He plans on opening in another location-soon to be announced. Revolution Pizza opened a few doors away, with New York City pizza, open at nights.

It was closed both times we went there. After reading the reviews on Tripadvisor, yelp and google reviews, we were so excited to go there, and we went by there on two separate occasion and were disappointed it was closed both on both occasions.

We went to Vejigante as a lunch stop on a tour of the rainforest and it was the highlight of the day. I would recommend the trio mofongo, also try the ribs and pork fried cubes. The people were friendly and the food was excellent. Do yourself a favor and try Vejigante!

Despite the simple nature of the resto, the food is great! We had lots of veggie options to choose from which was refreshing in luqillo....mixed mofongo is great!

My wife and our stayed at the El Conquistador Hotel for our Honeymoon. We hiked in El Yungue during the day and stopped off at Lugillo beach that night. We had oysters in the parking lot and then walked the beach for a bit. Beach wasnt what I had been lead to believe from other reviews but this restaurant made... More

Very nice meal; well prepared food. Shrimp mofongo was good. My family also enjoyed the barbecued shrimp. Service was friendly and prompt.

We had a late lunch here after visiting the beach in Luquillo. The food was affordable and delicious. The server was a little slow to refilling our drinks and getting us our bill. Otherwise, I loved the restaurant's food, location and affordable prices. I would definitely consider visiting again. I had the shrimp mofongo, coco frio to drink and flan... More

The food was very tasty but I probably won't go back because they were way too slow. I know things in Puerto Rico are at a slower pace than back home. This isn't my first trip here but this place made slow look fast. I was falling asleep waiting for him to take our money for the check and bring... More

Scrumptious mofongo, cold sangría and an unusual vegetarian option were enjoyed by all. The mofongo was seasoned to perfection. The churrasco and chicken fillings were reportedly very good, a 4 on a 0-5 scale (we are demanding foodies). My food presentation was superb, almost artistic. I ordered the braised eggplant piccata. My only suggestion to them would be to marinate... More
