We walked in late with no booking which wasn't an issue. Had a great starter ordered a main course and had a salad to share was a mistake the salad was a meal to its self. The staff don't speak much English which isn't an issue but it's hard to ask them about the foods. Cannot fault the food it... More

We had been to this restaurant several years ago when they served mainly tapas. It is now more a restaurant serving more meals than tapas Shame because there are no good tapas restaurants in and around Puerto Rico . We had tapas and sat at the bar and had ham, cheese and bread with a bottle of the house Rose.... More

Went on recommendations from local staff and trip advisor. Was ok. Food fine and service ok. Forgettable, not worthy of a complaint, but seek out other spots more worthy of your holiday eating €s.

A tourist restaurant that serves excellent food. The octopus stew was delicious. Reasonably priced and centrally located.

Always visit this restaurant at least once for a sit down meal and never disappointed, The steak pepitos are a nice sandwich to take away if you just want a quiet sandwich and great value.

May the god of tourism save me from ropey restaurateurs... More

Having seen this Restaurant packed solidly for several evenings and a queue waiting, we decided we ought to eat here. Never have we been so disappointed. The chips were small, a strange colour and very limp and the vegetables looked as though they had been overcooked and then some. We did not return.

The servants were very friendly and serviceminded. It is a popular restaurant in the Puerto Rico centre. The food was absolutely good and the portions large. Just try this place.
