4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Great service, good value for money, very busy which is a good sign, food was really good apart from the steak being a tad over done. Sauces to accompany the steaks were very nice and great size. Squid was fresh, tasty and cooked well. Overall great experience, would of gladly given it a 4.5 but not possible 😔

We visited this restaurant with our son, his wife and our 16 month old granddaughter, after reading the tripadvisor reviews, we wished we'd found it sooner ( We visited it on the last two days of our holiday ). The staff are really friendly and really great with our granddaughter and the food was great. My husband and son had... More

This place had been recommended to us and we really fancied some traditional paella. Can honestly say it was gorgeous. You have to order for a min of 2 people as it's cooked in a large pan, and there is plenty of food. We had the mixed paella and it had plenty of chicken, meat and fish, plus muscles and... More

A must go to eat in Puerto Rico, great service, yummy food and a good atmosphere. Very welcoming as you get to the restaurant and you are well looked after. We had a pizza and escalopes for mains and i would highly recommend both. Lovely place to go for a meal, also very reasonably priced.

We were undecided between this restaurant and the steak house next door, but were swayed by the host at the door quoting the good reviews on TripAdvisor. Unfortunately our experience was not that great. The restaurant was busy but it took a while for a waiter to take our drinks order. More time passed and I had to catch a... More

We came here on the 4th night of our holiday, having eaten in a couple of restaurants in the Commercial Centre and one on the sea front, we found this place to be entirely different class. Made to feel very welcome immediately, this place is a restaurant to please people, not just to make money off tourists. Excellently cooked food,... More

We eat two pieces of pizza for the lunch. Pizzas was very large and very much fillets. Usually many places pizzas are small but this pizza was very good.

We ate on Friday 16th September just the 2 of us. Restaurant was very nice and initially the staff seemed attentive. Menu good and reasonably priced. After we ordered our food the service levels went downhill. This is an average restsurant trying to be upmarket. Next door is the Cosi Come Sei restsurant which is different class. Overall our food... More

We had this restaurant recommended to us by one of the other guests in our accommodation and looking back on their advice it was a god send. This restaurant is fantastic and if you are going to Puerto Rico then definitely experience it for yourself. The staff are really friendly, attentive without being over-bearing, the quality of the food it... More
