Restaurant details
Reviewed April 22, 2016

We ordered 2 beers, 1 cranberry juice, 2 orders of the mofongo with shrimp and then a side of rice (mamposteao). Total after tax was $53. We thought the food was just okay. Restaurant was clean though and the service was good.

Thank Mailoha

This place is tucked away in the outskirts of town, but it is a good respite. Upon arrival, you are immediately greeted by the sweet sound of a trio of singers, serenading diners with classic Puerto Rican love songs. The music was mesmerizing.

The appetizers came in an array of fried cheese with guava sauce, empanadas with lobster and fish fritters. A favorite dish, Mofongo (local dish with mashed fried green plantain with chicken drizzled with Creole sauce) came in a huge pilon (mortar). The Trifongo (trio of green plantain, ripe sweet plantain and cassava) is NOT to be missed.

Its claim to fame is the octopus, which came either as a salad or in garlic and oil. The fried red snapper was good. The Mamposteao rice was an excellent side dish, made with red beans and tomato sauce.

If you are in the mood for a good local experience, try this place.
