Luis is terrific, felt at home in this spotless place from the moment we entered. Service was attentive and prompt. We shared a small but nice octopus salad. I had snapper with garlic sauce which was fantastic. My tostones were perfect. My husbands seafood mofongo was loaded with shellfish, generous portion. The sauce in his mofongo was sweeter than I...

Great local food that's nice and fresh! Can't beat it!! If you don't want to wat at a food chainbon route 3 this is not far off the highway and has easy access back onto the highway. The owners are a husband and wife team and are friendly and informative about local events and culture.

Luis, the owner was excellent. The food was very good, the Arepas OMG! Great!. We were a big group (17). Basically filled up half of the restaurant. Luis was very accommodating and he helped us divide our bill by family head (4 in total). At the end of the meal he already knew our names. His wife is the cook,... More

The food was not bad we had the mofango seafood the sauce was a little too sweet and over powered the dish, my husband and the garlic snapper that was very good, the service was ok but then they got very busy, so maybe that's the reason the bill was 150.00 dollars for 4 people with 1 bottle of wine...

What a wonderful hidden gem of a restaurant! We had no trouble finding it because we used the GPS on my phone, but it can be a bit difficult. We came because it was recommended by a Puerto Rican woman who works in my building. It looks like the owner of a souvenir shop decided to throw a few tables... More

We had a bit of a challenge locating the restaurant, and circled the block a few times before we hit the jackpot. A little unnerved by having to ring a buzzer to get in, but our concerns were unfounded. Wonderful owner and son were in the front of the house in this small establishment, and they were warm, friendly and... More

Ordered a cajun red snapper. Fish was from frozen but home made Caribbean cajun sauce was to die for, mildly sweet and spicy. Just fantastic. Home made flan for desert was the best I've ever eaten!

Highly rated and lives up to its reviews. Run by a couple and their son this is a gem of a restaurant and is a true local experience. The red snapper with creole sauce was amazing. The owner ended up giving my girlfriend a coquí necklace as it was her birthday! Would go back in a heartbeat.

Delicious red snapper in creole sauce, although the sauce was a thick tomato and not what I would call Creole. Owner waited on us and was warm and friendly. We would go back gladly.
