“Good meal-this is where the locals go”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Place was filled with families. Quite a few "happy birthday" sing alongs. Our meals consisted of breaded grouper, Garlic and butter Mahi Mahi and steak. All came with veggies,bread and the BEST red beans and rice. This was the most enjoyable meal we had in the Dorado area.

“Needs an update.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

The food is good but overpriced. The menu and saloon need an update. Service is average. Easy to get location. It is more a classy "fonda" than a restaurant.

“Seafood with PR flair”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013 via mobile

A must-try restaurant if you are staying in Dorado. Don't miss the seafood asopao and the mofongo., as well as the moist and totally yummy tres leches cake.

“Never had fresher fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

Wow! The grouper we had last night was amazing. So fresh, tender and tasty. Glad that we ordered the sauces on the side as they may have overpowered the fish. We had the mahi nuggets and they were great as well. Very reasonably priced. And the deserts were also great. The three milk calk was so tender and moist and we loved the coconut custard as well. All in all, muy muy bueno. Excellente!

“A Hidden Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

This was an unexpected gem away from the resorts that you need to find. It is by the public beach and I believe it is a local favorite. The service was a little slow, but the food was delicious and plentiful. The shrimp, rice and beans were so tasty. It is a bit pricy for where it is located, but I would definitely go back.
