A friend told us that we needed to go here, and it lived up to the reputation. Everything was delicious, but the deboned yellowtail and filete empanado were the stars. The wait is legendarily long, but we solved that by snagging seats at the bar--which...More

This is one of those restaurants where hype and marketing trump good, old fashioned quality and good service. Yes, the food, which is a fusion of typical "criollo" Puerto Rican food with a modern touch, is very good. However, I have been here twice and...More

If you are in San Juan, don't miss this restaurant. It is great food and very friendly staff. BE prepared to wait a while though. There is limited seating and lots of people go there. There is a market on the next block and bars...More

Moderate pricing. Dinner for two with appetizer and drink about 100. You could bring the bill down by not ordering appetizer.
