Great food! Ordered the ropa vieja with rice and black beans. The food came out fast and hot. Other folks ordered salmon. They provide warm garlic bread before your dinner comes out. Wait staff was friend and efficient. They also have a separate room from the dining area for music and more socializing. Good food.

We had really not considered going to this restaurant, but decided to try it after it was recommended by multiple local people. The food lived up to our expectations and the service was phenomenal. Lots of explanation about the food with recommendations on what to try, the food tasted great. Definitely would go here again.

Picked the restaurant due to its proximity to our hotel and were fairly impressed with the options. The property is a bit stark, a bit of a franchise feel, but the food was tasty and fresh.

Nice and quaint place with traditional Puerto Rican and Cuban cuisine. The prices are affordable, the facility is clean and nicely decorated. You will feel comfortable even if you are a visiting tourist. There is no concern for a language barrier, the staff is fluent in English and Spanish.

This a nice place to have a romantic dinner or just to visit with friends. Great atmosphere and even better servers/wait staff. The food was excellent as well! I got the seafood mofungo and the octopus on it was amazing! Perfectly cooked!

The food was average, the service non-existent. Our waiter was not very friendly, the place was busy and he seemed overwhelmed.
