Don't Pepe's has proven to be the family favorite in PR. Coconut rice, yeah. Mofongo heaven. The best beans and rice. They still need a green veggie on the menu other than salad. Great ambiance. Live music and artwork make for a nice environment. They...More

The restaurant was small in size but big in taste. Staff was very friendly. Great location for us, since it was just down from our resort.

I went with my family of 12 and we had a great time! Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The Puerto Rican food was really good. I recommend it for people that want to have good seafood and a great mofongo with churrasco and lobster.

Several menu options but they aren't cheap here. Mufungo's Chicken and fish. Glad we stopped and had the experience, I can now say I have had a Mufungo. If you like Puerto Rican food hit it.

Great Puerto Rican food. The arroz con habichuelas wonderful! Amarillos were very tasty. Cozy atmosphere, but too cold inside.

Great menu & the food is very good. The portions are quite large. We went on a Sunday night (Father's Day). We were able to be seated immediately and requested the 2nd floor. It was a bit noisy and very chilly (bring a sweater!). Service...More

Yes, I am very reactive to wheat, so I have to be very careful and avoid it. For example the mofongo stuffed with fish or shrimps, etc, does not contain any gluten. Neither the arroz con gandules, the scampi chillo etc. But... More

It is about average for sit down places. Large portions so we had it for two days.

Casual! Just about any place in PR is casual! One word of warning though -- they're air conditioning upstairs is on full blast and they can't adjust it, so if you go with very little on, or your sunburned, and you are... More
