“Melt in your mouth Churrasco and delicious Mofongo”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

My husband and I share the Churrasco ( cause its HUGE) and order an extra mofongo, so it's good for your wallet. The service is ALWAYS really good from start (valet parking) to finish. We have been return customers for years now. Just love it.

“Casa Dante - Great food and good value.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Churrasco was excellent. Our first encounter with mofungo (lots of fat and calories) but good taste and mouth-feel. The staff help you park at this crowed Isla Verde location. Ambiance is 'upscale luncheonette', but neat and clean.

“Great local place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

My wife and I have eaten in this restaurant many times over the past 8 years. It is a great place for Puerto Rican food. There are always local people eating there as well as tourists. One of my favorite dishes there is churrasco(skirt steak) which is a popular dish in Puerto Rico. It is as good as anyplace on the island. The staff are always friendly and helpful.

“Good local place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

The mofongo here was garlicky and delicious. I had it with chicharrones, which were also good. The sangria tasted just like fruit punch - this could be a good or bad thing depending on your tastes. Our waiter was very friendly too.
