Ate here whilst working in PR, the restaurant is tucked away down the side of Hard Rock. Loads of really nice menu choices including vegetarian options. Unexpectedly good food and the service times were good despite most being made up fresh.

Thanks for your review! We are glad you liked it! I have to clarify that having no liquor service is temporary. We are working in the renewal of the licence and we will be serving liquor soon.

I am unsure if meat is halal. It is within walking distance from Condado Hilton. It is directly across from Marriott Stellaris in Condado. You won't be disappointed!
