The food here is delicious!! Make sure and try the Chicken Monfogo. The sangria was also good. Service was excellent, prompt, and wait staff spoke great English. Within easy walking distance to Ritz Carlton.

Love the service and live music on Saturday nights. The staff is very friendly and the food presented, perhaps, the best beans and rice I have eaten in Puerto Rico. A+

If you want authentic PR food go here. The food is fresh and delicious! There were 5 or6 sangria's to choose from and the waiter (Kevin) brought us a bunch of samples to choose from. The Champagne Sangria and the Coconut Sangria were ! The Fish was super fresh! Gotta try if you go!

My point? Customer service, in addition to the... More

This restaurant was recommended by the staff at our hotel. A quick walk to look at the menu convinced us to return at dinner time. We ordered mofongo with churrasco and shrimp, and enjoyed both plates. The side of rice mampostea'o was also delicious. Prices seemed average for the Isla Verde strip. We were there on a Wednesday and it... More

The place is well located but it is kind of noisy, and the service was really bad. We kept asking for someone to bring our drinks, and ask for someone to take our order, too. They had happy hour, and music. We had to move since music was too loud or too near. Good food.

We went twice while in Puerto Rico, recommended to us by the hotel concierge at the Intercontinental. Great food, great sangria, great atmosphere. Very glad that we found this restaurant. Be sure to ask about their local specialties.

Ok, so we were confused and went to this restaurant mistaken it was another place. The staff is unprofessional (bartenders eating at the bar). The food is less than desirable and to top it off, the prices are ridiculous. I hardly cook at home and let me tell ya, I can cook a better rice and beans than this place.... More

We had a party of 5 (grandmother, parents, and 2 children) eat dinner here and have wildly different experiences. Ultimately, it just came down to what the individual ordered. We were seated right away, although the service was slow. However, the first several things which made it to the table were quite promising. The coconut mojitos, in particular, were excellent....
