Went last week. I have been here before. The good thing about this place is its consistency in the classic dishes. Had the skirt steak, medium. Always like it when my plate comes as ordered, not overcooked. Drinks are average price but good in quality. I have had also the fried chicken with home made fries, always good.

We went at lunch hour. We order steak (bistec) and fried chicken empanada with rice and beans. The steak was very dry, poor quality. The food was not good.

This place has one of the best pizza in town. And the chicharrones de pollo (fried chicken is excellent. It is kind of dark but in a good way. It is a different but nice atmosphere.

Greatest pizza on the island and rightly so since they claim it was the owner, and father of Puerto Rican (Hollywood & Broadway) actor Raúl Julia, who first introduced pizza to PR. A must visit spot!! Very low lighting so be warned folks who have light refraction issues.

This is a San Juan classic. We love the atmosphere of this Spanish Cave Decorated restaurant. The pizza and the fried chicken are great.
