I live a few minutes away from Puerto Viejo so I order once in a while when I want Spanish food. The food is always good. It depends on which app I use to order my food the delivery experience can be bad. If you...go to the restaurant just know they take cash only.More

Excellent Dominican restaurant in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. Great atmosphere and food. Recommend the Pernil & Yucca Puree. For desert, Tres leches was pretty good. Look for specials.

We had once again delicious food here, very authentic home cooking. Well served, very professional kind and welcoming staff. Mixed local crowd, laid back & great vibes. Would return anytime and highly recommend this place!

To tell you the truth, one of the best empanadas that I have ever tasted. The beef empanadas are to die for.

Visiting this place was bittersweet for me. Sweet because the food was good, in terms of flavor and the menu had a good selection of my dominican food. Bitter because everything was overpriced just because this place had the word “Bistro” in it. The decoration...are great, it makes you feel like you are really in a puerto viejo, with old furniture and decorations. The service is nice I would say. I would visit again since is close to my house. Im a little glad Dominican food is getting more “fancier”.More

The food and wine were excellent. I had a pork dish with rice and beans and salad. I’m very critical of restaurant food since I love to cook but the pork was well seasoned and tender. Also had appetizers, avocado based. They were beautifully arranged...and delicious. The service was perfect.More
