We went ziplining and it was suggested we try this place. Let me tell you the best food and drinks I had although the kiosk in Culebra gives them a good run for their money. I highly recommend this place you sit outside and the view is a natural river which you can go into, it is very rocky I went it just to absorb the beauty of it. The staff are very friendly and they have a guy singing live music. I really enjoyed this place. Also don't forget to write on their wall!!! We had a little too many pina coladas and forgot by the time we left to do that! LOL

The waiter was very kind and even escorted us from the car into the restaurant under his umbrella. Great local food and flavor!

My wife and I were in Puerto Rico for a week and of all the places we ate, this was definitely the best. The pig wings are amazing. Rafael waited on us and was very cool, outstanding service. The mixed drinks he recommended were so good and the bar tender brought me out a shot of liquor himself, the shot of rum had to be the best I've ever had. We also had the Cornish hen stuffed with yucca, and the fries as well; they were both delicious. Great view as well. We both loved it, I'd definitely recommend it, going back next time we visit for sure...

My family of four went there for dinner. We each ordered a separate dish and we all enjoyed our meal.
The appeitzer pig wings I think they're called are delicious, as well as their beef patties.
It's a nice outdoors atmosphere.
The prices are not cheap, but the service and food is good. The waitress was very attentative and the manager/ chef came to introduce himself to us at the end of the meal. And also gave us a shot of liquor which was very good.
The bill came with these cute spanish lollipops I have yet to try.
I was looking forward to their flan that everyone raved about on trip advisor, but unfortunately the passion fruit flan was not as good as I was hoping it would be.
Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.
