We were a group of 14 and they managed to get our orders promptly and without any mistakes. Every single one of us loved his order. Our server Hector was amazing and even gave us tips on what to see and visit

The food and service were good. The Churrasco was really good while the Mofongo was lacking flavor. Unfortunately, the ambiance is lacking in an area that is heavy with tourists. It would be great to see them open the place up!

Had dinner here tonight since it was very close to our hotel and was underwhelmed. The food wasn’t per se bad it just wasn’t great. This is a mediocre restaurant on an island with a lot better choices. I would definitely skip it.
