"Rico like always"

It is our 11th visit to this place and they still have the touch. They do magic with the plantain. The service still awesome, the area has a gorgeous view and the weather is always perfect. The praise is great and the portion of the food is super. They are excellent.

The plantain sandwiches are just great. Prices and service are very good. The restaurant is a bit hidden; however, I like to explore! Definitely recommend visiting if you are in the west side of the Island.

We went here while visiting Rincon. The drive was interesting...definetely up a cliff. Our GPS did work at getting us there but we got lost on the way back. It's very cute, the staff doesn't speak English but enough that she could recommend the most popular dishes. We had mofongo and a chicken sandwich. It was really cool to eat... More

Well everything here is made of plantains. They will cook anything in between, over or even under. Dessert is made of platano too. Real nice view front here. Easy access just drive to Aguada and fallow the signs. Lovely place.

After a 3-hour drive and getting lost in Aguada, you would expect a well kept restaurant. It has lost the grace it once had. The food remains good and original. They added some yuca (cassava) items to their menu. I tried the Yuca Parmesana and it was good. Too bad the place does not feels as clean and as memorable... More

The food is really good and cheap. The only think I didnt like was the cheese that they use for the mofongos. Is really bad quality, so if you will order mofongo, try to select normal mofongo, not with cheese. The service is good.

I love the food, the service and the atmosphere. I use to go once a month but since I relocated to USA, I go every time I visit the Island. They are down to earth very humble. I did a project about their business when I was in college and they donated the food. Thank you, I’ll never forget that.
