The food was okay. Grilled meat with large portions but nothing special flavor wise. We ordered two entrees, but I think we could have just shared one. The service was friendly and prompt.

The long awaited Bandeja Paisa was thoroughly enjoyed at this establishment. The portion is big enough for 2 with leftovers to boot. The pricing at this establishment is fantastic in comparison to the rest of the Island. I docked a point for slow, uncommunicative waitstaff.

The quantity of food and the prices paid was fantastic compare to prices on the strip. Only downside is that they do not speak much English but enough to get you food and pay bills and small conversation. I came here twice and loved it....More
