Order the ropa vieja mofongo. It was delicious. We also had the churassco but nowhere near as good or juicy as the ropa vieja.

Food was pretty good but being only one of two couples in the entire restaurant, you would think they customer service would have been spot on. Drinks went unfilled, food took longer than expected and the waiter made us feel like we were bothering him for asking for a to go box and the check.

Our first night in Puerto Rico and I wanted some mofongo. This place was recommended by the concierge so we had to try it. The rope vieja mofongo was amazing. I had never had mofongo before...but I am glad I have now. It has to be one of my favorite dishes, especially with rope vieja in it. There was chicken... More

This restaurant was walking distance from our hotel and recommended by several people. The food was delicious! It doesn't look like much from the outside but it is very nice inside.

Great traditional Puerto Rican food! The Relleno de Ropa Vieja is delicious! If you like mofongo, you'll love this place!

My wife and I came and ordered the Red Snapper and Black bean risotto with filet mignon on tips. Both were great! The service was fast and good as well. Nice part is it was within walking distance of beach and our hotel. After dinner, we walked the beach back to our hotel.

We went there at the last minute and it was a great experience. They were able to seat a group of 9 and everyone was satisfied with their meals. The food arrived fast and the taste and service were excellent. They do not have parking available and the closest one is very expensive..

Thank Sara T
