“Nice quick place to eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Mexican to Tex-Mex. Reasonable options and a good margarita. Close to the hotel and convention center, which rates it slightly higher than it might otherwise. Sweet view of the water and Bellagio-style fountains.

“Bad food, bad management, greedy waiter.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012 via mobile

Ordered a burrito, it arrived cold. It was sent back and apparently they put the entire burrito with it' lettuce and tomato in the microwave. It was soggy and disgusting. Then waiter decided to add his own tip on the bill and I had to ask him to take it off. No apology from waiter or management. Worst experience in puerto rico.

“Horrible Staff”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

8 of us tried to order takeout here. We heard them in Spanish talking down on us (we were a mix of Asian nationalities). We kept hearing them making ethnic references to us to the kitchen staff and after 20 minutes of waiting, was told that they could not serve us. I can't believe the ridiculousness of any establishment like this that would do that.

Boycott this restaurant. Do yourself a favor and ask your taxi driver where he likes to eat. The local places are absolutely awesome in San Juan.

“Good food, average service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

The mojitos were the bomb. The food was tasty and well priced. The service could improve in terms of hospitality and speed.

“Very close to Sheraton”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

The Ficus bar/club is right outside the frontdoor of the Sheraton Convention Center Hotel. Great sampler platter. The mojitos were the best in Puerto Rico.
