“New Gem in Dorado”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

This is a newly opened restaurant in Dorado. If you like open aired, regional cuisine, no nonsense good food, you have to give this a try. Servers are very courteous and the manager is very attending. It is one of the best mofongo I had. For those rabbit and gizzard lovers. This is definitely the place to go. I wish, though, that they have coffee on the menu. Dr. C

“Good, authentic”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

If its your first time in Puerto-Rico, this would be a good place to have a dinner. The restaurant is small; decor is interesting, authentic. Food and drinks were good, but some of the meals are very greasy, so be careful what you order. The portions are big, so you don't really need appetizer and a main course - it will be a lot. Plus, they have a "passion colada". Honestly, it's a very heavy drink - not because of the alcohol (there is none in it, at least there wasn't in mine), but because of the calories. After one glass you don't feel like eating. Service was very pleasant, but slow.

“Average Place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

Went with the recommendations of TA and wanted to try the new place, but something missing here! Food was not our cup of tea, guess they are just not for us. Too greasy and too salty. Most items on the menu are not the kind of food we eat. Service is a bit zombie like, the quietness made it even more eerie.
Overall, there are better places in town. Check the menu first.

“You have to go there...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

I haven't been in the Island for a while, and wanted to experience myself what was the big fuss about this place in Dorado. To tell you the truth, I was a little skeptic since personally I am not a big fan of "conejo" but once you get there you get so involved that you forget about it! Great taste, even better presentation, this is definitely a 5 star experience that everybody needs to be a part of. Staff was absolutely wonderful! Will come back on my next visit.
