Loved the cheese balls and the sea food, like always had to get me some empanadillas. The service was good and the waiter was friendly.

Each time I visit the Island I take a day to travel all the way across the Island to have their Pastelillos de Langosta (Lobster Turnovers). They are THAT GOOD!

From the appetizers to the meal, hats off!! The service was exceptional, surullitos were very crispy, that's how I like it, the trunk fish I ordered was superb and the flan delicious!

I had few appetizers that where good in size but not with full local flavor like I was expecting. I know my criollo seasoning and vibrant flavor but the octopus that we order was blend and not yummy. Aranitas looks like the where smash in our basket and where real messy. The best of our meal was the beer. Real... More

My family and I visited this restaurant because we were looking for a non-fast food easy lunch. Service was slow, chapin turnovers are ok and beer was cold.

Their seafood is very good and fresh. I had mofongo with seafood and it was the best ever. The service was great and the price is not too bad. Everything tasted so delicious.

I didn't see others receiving the same attention which would have annoyed me if it happened to me...everyone has the potential to be a repeat... More

We've visited this place for over 10 years; its a good family establishment, consistent in their offerings and atmosphere. The prices are very reasonable for the size of their portions; my all time favorite is their "conch salad / ensalada de carrucho" the kids always enjoy the "empanadillas de Chapin" the octopus is awesome as well.. The only downside is... More
