First dinner in Puerto Rico and was not disappointed. The staff was extremely nice. Complimentary bread and butter. I ordered the chicken with garlic sauce and it was good. I'm giving it a 4 star because the chicken was kind of chewy. My boyfriend got the breaded chicken and it was fine. Also the rice and beans tasted amazing along... More

Arrived last week for dinner. The atmosphere was lovely as there was live music. The staff was excellent and we had a great time. We ordered the cheese empanadas which had very little cheese in them. Basically had no taste. The ham croquettes were a little tastier but very mushy. The steak mofongo which is my favorite dish, but this... More

This isn't a fine dining establishment, but the restaurant has a lovely design. The food and service were excellent. If you want Puerto Rican specialties, I recommend this place.

Worth the time if you are looking for authentic Cuban and Puerto Rican. Upscale casual dining. Try something different from their menu other than your standard order.

I'll start with the good. The Ropa Vieja was delicious. The skirt steak was cooked perfectly and melted in my mouth. The service was awful. We waited for 35 minutes for food and drinks. We were with kids, small children which made it extra difficult to wait. It was more frustrating to watch the owner sit and watch us from... More

We have been coming to Puerto Rico for a few years now. We try to get here at least once a year as it is an easy flight from NY. We consider ourselves "food people" and enjoy a good meal. Well, this is one of the places that we come back to again and again...and they did not disappoint! Two... More
