Nice place!

Really liked it! We were concerned because of some of the negative reviews, but the food was delicious and the service was great. Try the Puerto Rico burrito...so good!

This restaurant has the potential to be really cool, but it fell short. I had a chicken burrito, like you can order at any Mexican restaurant, but I paid twice as much as usual and it wasn't satisfying. The chicken was dry and the flavors were dull. It seemed like it had been made hours ago and stuck in a... More

When walking along Isla Verde resort area, we were drawn to this place by 1) menu diversity which included not only Mexican, but PR options and burgeresmas well); 2) pricing (can't afford resort menus for entire vacation for a family of four); and 3) outdoor seating which is rare for that area, at least in our observation. Service: our waiter... More

WE enjoyed the closeness of this restaurant and the food. The servers were all over you to make your visit enjoyable but did not annoy us at all. Good food, reasonably priced. Miquel, our weightier, made me a copy of the menu so I could write this review. We ate here several times on our stay in Puerto Rica!

This place was close to our hotel, Intercontinental. The staff were very welcoming when we first walked in. Our server was Miguel and he was the best! The food was great, portions were huge and prices were VERY reasonable for this area (including kids meal). We ate outside and had a great dinner on our first night in PR. We... More

We had the Puerto Rican Margarita. Frozen no taste, on the rocks all alcohol. Try the loaded nachos!

It's not fancy, but it's not meant to be. Traditional Mexican food and a selection of "authentic" Puerto Rican fare along with traditional bar food favorites like chicken wings featured on the menu. Lots of TVs if you want to watch your favorite sports. Nice wait staff but they are a bit on the mañana time table. I'd definitely return.... More
