This lovely little restaurant's French Provincial decor belies its status as one of Puerto Rico's only vegetarian restaurants. Lovely service, a very well priced menu, the only downside is that they do not take reservations. However, get there when they open at 6 and you are pretty well guaranteed a table in this tiny place overlooking La Principessa Promenade.

Such a charming and eclectic decor, which completely sets the stage for the uniquely wonderful menu. The menu does not have a large listing, but after listening to the well described and detailed version of each dish, it was hard to make a choice! We started with the swordfish appetizer, he had octopus and I had the fish entree and... More

We were there last night, after reading all the reviews at tripadvisor we were excited of going there. The place looks amazing! Our experience with food and service was bad. Amongst other small things: They forgot to ask what we wanted to drink, we had to wait for wine whilst the appetizer was getting cold for 10 minutes. Before we... More

The ratatouille was the best I have ever had! My favorite meal ever! I would go back to Puerto Rico just to eat there again! I love that it is all organic, farm to table, I loved the ambience of the little restaurant. While the menu is not large, everything on it was fabulous! The chefs are truly inspired! Could... More

The food was scrumptious. We shared multiple dishes between the four of us and each one was superb. Our favorites included the beet salad and the purple cow desert. We also tried the cocktails. They were very refreshing. The decor is unique. The service excellent.

We started by choosing one of the tempting and unusual drinks which are made with fresh juices and herbs, intended to whet the appetite and prepare one's pallet for the meal (the drinks can be ordered with or without alcohol- we opted for the alcoholic version). The appetizer of octopus served with a delicious sauce totally exceeded our expectations. We... More

OK. So we could not find a menu online. We just saw the great reviews. So we went. We got there and it was absolutely beautiful inside. Tin ceilings, chandeliers and soft romantic music. Kind of like French Country decor mixed with Art Noveau. Charlie was our server and he was so amazing. He has a true love of what... More

We went here for my husband's 60th birthday dinner with our adult kids and it was fabulous. The menu was so full of delicious options that it was hard to choose but everything, and I mean from cocktails to dessert was just wonderfully prepared and beautifully presented. The atmosphere is just delightful, bohemian decor, and they don't care how long... More
