Chef is purely disgusting, food was bland and without flavor. Bartenders are purely kind and humble. But food service was bad. My Fried fish was without flavor, the bartered seemed old and horrible.

I recommend you call them directly; at 1 (787) 889-5735. They might still not have power since the passing of storm Maria.
