Overpriced good food

The food here is good, but it is overpriced. I ordered a dish and wanted the side to be their specialty "arroz mamposteao". They charged me $4 extra for that. My wife and I were so excited that they offered a plantain soup, only to discover it was likely a green plantain, savory soup, similar to... read more

Went here to celebrate my friends birthday. The place is really fancy inside. The tables, tablecloths and utilery but the food is nothing out of this world for the price.

Very cozy yet elegant. The mahi mahi was extremely fresh and mofongo de yuca incredible. Super affordable for the quality of food. Example $15 for the plate I had. Flan de almendra (almond) super creamy and not too sweet. I'm definitely coming back on my next trip!! Have recommended it to everyone!! Pic of the flan

A nicely decorated restaurant with Puerto Rican flavors and dishes, famous for its "mamposteao" rice; which is rice cooked with red beans and very lightly toasted in a skillet. From the outside you probably would not think to enter, but once inside, its simple modern decor will sooth you. Good portions, flavors, though service is a bit informal, but it... More

I enjoyed my dinner at this quiet place. I had the steak with onions and salad. I preceded my entree with their chicken soup which was a bit on the salty side but still a nice start to a good meal.. The food was well prepared and very flavorful. The sangria was refreshing and the service was very good. The... More
