I went today with friends and family. Tasted the ribs, fried pork, sausage, arroz mamposteao was one of the best I tasted, piña colada and a vanilla custard. It was a family place. The service was also excellent. Keep it going.

the charm! This was our second visit because my husband insisted. The beer was cold, the food hot and delicious and the service quick and courteous. This time around we sat inside because it was breezy ( er...cold for us Puertorricans) so the food stayed warm for longer and we enjoyed it better than the first time. The familion is... More

This restaurant is located in Barranquitas, a town that is in the country side of the island about 1hr 15 min from San Juan. Barranquitas is well known to be one of the coldest places on the island during this time of year and that was the first thing we noticed getting out of the car. So bring something to... More

Two hours wait for very basic food with lot of excuses and no apology ??Horrible and Unaceptable Simply bad planning, bad staffing, extremely loud music( mostly from Colombian cumbias or vallenatos instead of traditional local )place have a privileged great view and might be a hot spot for only drinking purposes but the restaurant was awful.

Good food, hefty portions. We had the 'medio familion', which includes the rice of the day cooked over a wood stove and we can select 3 out of 4 types of meat, servings good for up to 4 people. The service was quick and courteous and even though it was a long trek from the metro area (about 1.5 hours),... More

This is a rustic and charming restaurant with local food an extensive liquor bar and service that goes by far and beyond. We decided we wanted to skip the usual suspects and go to a smaller place and this was it. The atmosphere it's what the doctor ordered. Nice and cool breezes, a wood house with an extensive balcony and... More
