This is the place where the original piña colada was invented. The restaurant serves very good local cuisine with friendly service. Family owned and managed for many generations. In keeping with spanish tradition, an excellent flamenco show is featured.

Stopped for lunch on a busy Saturday and had a terrific seafood lunch with probably the best Pina Coladas we've ever had. They are fresh, big and at $7 a great price. Their apps and main courses are also good and very reasonable.

Terrific place. The Piñas Coladas are excellent as well as food quality and portions. Customer service is very good also. Adjacent there is a souvenir shop with good selection and prices.

The food was good. Some dishes were over price like the plantain canoa. We had the mofongo with fried pork and the steak fajita. Pretty good. The sangria was not worth a second glass they could do better. But the main event is the flamenco show. It was very entertaining the musicians and dancers Excellent. It make it worth going.... More

If you wouldn't know about this restaurant you would pass it as its hidden at a small plaza that's reached through an ally with some souvenir shops. The atmosphere, service, food, price, Piña Coladas, all great. We went twice during our holidays - once just to snack (try the sample platter to have a bit of a taste of everything),... More

We had very high hopes for this restaurant, considering we'd heard good things about the Piña Coladas (this is where they were invented). The drinks were great -- we each had two and both were enjoyable. The food was not nearly as good. Our appetizer -- shrimp cocktail -- was fine. But the paella was nearly inedible. We got the...

Food was pretty good. Big portions a little pricey comparably speaking to the area. They have traditional Puerto Rican food and Traditional American dishes. They try hard to please the guests.
