Today after a round of golf at Rio Mar, we visited for lunch. Ample parking in front and back. Excellent female servers continually trying to please. Ample wine selection, flavor full cuisine. Try the mofongo with fish.

Four of us ordered various versions of monfongo which was really good. One person ordered the pork chop which was so overcooked and knife couldn't get through it. The service was friendly but incredibly slow. Our meal took well over 2 hours....

We had 9 people in our party and everyone's food was great. Coconut rice was perfect. Service was good. They even moved the ac vent so we wouldn't be cold. Definitely worth a visit.

We enjoyed Don Pepe's so much, we returned and brought another couple with us. We sat outside and tried something from both restaurants, Puerto Rican and Mexican. Great value, tons of food and atmosphere!

The grouper breaded in plantain is to die for! The fried cheese with guava dip was perfectly executed. We all raved about our dishes!

Fabulous Mexican restaurant, their burritos are huge and the very best I have ever had. They must be 2-3 lbs, more than enough for two. Very friendly staff, and a fun atmosphere!
