Spent 20 minutes waiting for a waiter in my table. Several came to near tables and not even a good afternoon. Was waiting for somebody else and had to change the meeting location. I left and nobody noticed. Not recommend.

Great place if you're looking for seafood in Old San Juan. Price range varies, from very cheap plates/appetizers to more expensive options. Overall very satisfied with the food.

My first meal in Puerto Rico and I was not disappointed! I had the seafood gumbo with fried plantains and a crabmeat empanada. Food was so delicious! The drinks were also good I had a passion fruit margarita and a strawberry mojito, which were both...amazing! Service was great as well. Our waiter only understood a little English, but he was very attentive in taking our orders and easily accessible throughout the meal. The only thing I will say is that if you plan on sitting inside you may want to bring a light sweater they keep it pretty cold since there’s fresh fish out near the dining area.More

The food is excellent! Some favorites: the fried shrimp tacos, fried fish tacos, grilled octopus salad, the halibut in garlic sauce, & the lobster in garlic salt. The servers are very attentive.

Absolutely the best sea food we had among all restaurants! We went for two dinners. Everything was delicious. I had the 2 lbs snapper both nights with sweet plantain. My husband had the black rice and calamari one night and the snapper in coconut another...night. We also had the little taco ceviche and fried calamari for appetizers. YUM YUM YUM.More

We visited this restaurant and it was a disaster. The service was very slow and the food was salty and mediocre. I don’t come back and I don’t recommend this restaurant.

We happened upon this restaurant looking for something filling after waking up our first morning in San Juan. It definitely feels like a tourist trap restaurant, but it was super tasty and we didn’t regret going there! I ordered paella and my friend ordered some...gambos de ajillo. The service was very attentive and excellent. However, if you’re going for a traditional, authentic flavor, then I would suggest trying somewhere else. But this is family friendly-perfect if you have kids or wanting a more cost effective meal that’s still delicious with plenty of options.More
