This restaurant offers cuban and puertorican cuisine. Their employees are very friendly. My husband and I ask for the "thermidor lobster", Although is not on the menu but they can cook it for you and is delicious. Remember also the "tostones" (fried plantain) and the "mofongo" (mashed plantain).

Stopped at outlet stores in Barceloneta and had good Cuban food at great price. The best was the super steak and sweet plantain. Their deserts selection could be better.
