This restaurant & bar has a great atmosphere and is in a good location in old San Juan. It's a little small, and the service can be slow, especially around busy times, but the food and drinks are good and at a reasonable price.

Great local and African-inspired home-made (!) dishes. We loved the fried corn fritters and empanadas. A fun lunch stop, with an eclectic menu and tasty drinks. The high ceilings and multiple fans made for a cool location, even on a hot day.
