I found this restaurant after reading reviews on trip advisor. We were looking for something delicious in Isla Verde that we could walk to from the Intercontinental Hotel. This one was rated #1 in the area and was super close---a short walk on the beach and we were there in less than 10 minutes. It was amazing!
We shared the popcorn soup. It was like nothing I've experienced before and just delicious. Rich, creamy, unique, hot and cold. I can't put in words why it was so good, but definitely you should order it! It's $9 and appetizer portion. It is so rich, it is a great thing to share so you don't fill up too much to enjoy the other amazing food there is to experience!
I had arroz con pollo. It was couscous perfectly flavored with bone in chicken with an amazing flavor! Served with a plantain based wafers and avocado slices. What a great combination! It was so good! It was $19. My husband ordered the snapper which was also delicious!
We were stuffed by the time we finished the entrees, but the chef is so amazing we had to experience his dessert creations! It was our last day in Puerto Rico after all. So we shared the doughnuts served with tiramisu cream to dip them in with Nutella power. Wow. Somehow being full we managed to eat every bite of that wonderful dessert.
I was so impressed! I don't think you can go wrong with anything on the menu. The menu is short, but each item on it is probably amazing!
We went for a late dinner at 9:30pm, so we didn't have any wait and there were about 7 other groups eating at that time. I am sure if you go at prime dinner time you will have to wait to get in, so consider reservations or going late like we did. There isn't a good waiting area and the hotel lobby is tiny too.
The ambiance is wonderful. It is very tiny, well decorated, modern, and cozy. Romantic even.
The service was great. They were all polite, classy, and helpful. The chef was visible and talked to serveral of the tables, although not ours. I wish he would have so I could tell him how impressed I was.
I'm telling you, you will enjoy going here! It is wonderful.
