We visited here as part of a food tour, and were impressed. I particularly enjoyed the alcapurias and fresh ceviche. They also had some homemade salsa that went well with the dishes as well. The atmosphere was very homey and they had local items for...purchase as well. I would definitely return to eat here again.More

Hernan was specially kind and knowledgeable about the menu. They have a great family environment in the...middle of Old San Juan! Great coffe and "flan" a typical dessert is very nice! Enjoy!More

Good, healthy food. Decent drinks. Friendly service. Central location. The rest of the review is written to comply with an inconvenient requirement to have a min 100 words reviews, which makes no sense.

One of the few places that was open during Covid, I live in PR so I know what great local food tastes like and this place was fantastic! We arrived right before the kitchen was closing and they graciously accommodated us. Our server Esteban was...so hospitable and the lamb chops I ordered were fantastic - very fresh! Interior of the restaurant was so charming. There’s a reason this place has so many good reviews - do your self a favor and eat here, you won’t be disappointed!More

Very good local Latin food. We ordered mofongo, empanadas and the avocado with chicken. Everything was delicious. We also enjoyed their homemade sangria and mojitos. The atmosphere was charming and cozy and the service was phenomenal. We will certainly return during our next trip to...Old San Juan. Thank you for your hospitality.More
