The food is excellent. It's worth every penny. I started with the mini turnovers the dipping sauce was excellent. My main entree was the encrusted chicken plantain mango guava sauce yum yum. House drinks was equally inviting. First time in PR loved it.

Had the Chicken Plantain which was a breast wrapped in fried green plantain. The guava sauce was to die for. I even ordered it again when I went back. My friend... More

The staff was also awesome, it was beyond what anyone could have asked for as their first meal here. Our waiter was Zach, he was friendly, super helpful on choosing a... More

The food and service was so good that we decided to eat there 2 nights in a row on our 3 day holiday! The outdoor setting was perfect with the breeze and light music. It made for a very relaxed atmosphere! Some must haves are the mahi bites, trifongo and one of each of their mojito flavorsw! Reasonable prices and... More

We were there this evening and it was great from start to finish. Zachary familiarized us with the menu and with what to see and do in Puerto Rico. The food was very good and Zachary made the experience wonderful. We ate outside right next to the fountain. Definitely try this place out and ask for Zachary. :)
