I do love this restaurant because has the capability to serve as a fine dining place but also a casual foe drinks, pizzetas and tapas.

Third time around, and wanted just good wine, appetizers and pizzetas. Love the four cheese and the one with mushrooms, jam and truffles oil.

Good wine selection.

Recommended!!!

Valet parking, great ambiance, good service, great food and superb key lime pie. Cane to this place very skeptical, because heard different stories and experiences about it. We had “croquetas de bacalao” for appetizer and a glass of “Tempranillo” wine. They both were delicious. Then I followed it with a salmon which was very good and seasoned perfectly. To top it all, the lemon key pie was great. One of the best I had tried lately.

Hi Isoto620,

We're happy you took the chance of visiting us despite the stories & experiences. Our croquettes are very requested by our patrons on our daily specials, so we do offer them quite regularly. Our desserts are all prepared on the house, from the famous key lime pie to our ice creams (we also sell them to-go on pints).

We take much pride in our service & food standards... So, thanks for sharing your experience with the world.


Hope to see you again in the near future!

We ate here with old friends who moved to San Juan 30 years ago. The food was awesome (large portions) and the live music in the bar area gave a nice Caribbean vibe. Our party got beef and seafood. Everyone was happy. The wine list is well priced and well stocked.

I used to visit this restaurant twice a month, very sad it star to decline, I bring a top client and the fish was gummy, the service was terrible. No way I will return. Too sad.

Hello Leo V,

I would like to apologize for your recent experience with us. Definitely, this is not the type of service we provide our guests and the way we want to be remembered. We take great pride on our service and food standards.

I only hope you can give us another chance in the near future, but once again we apologize for this quite unusual experience.

Please contact me directly to accommodate your next visit.
