We loved the authentic Puerto Rican food. We ordered the stuffed avocado with shrimp (the shrimp the avocado was fresh and tasty )We enjoyed the virgin pina colada , was delicious I would recommend getting the Chilean salad and rice n beans as sides . The fried plantains ( non sweet ones ) were good .Good experience !!

We were recommended this restaurant by a store clerk in St. Thomas who used to work in San Juan. He said this is where he went after work. The restaurant is very small, only 5 tables, and it was fantastic. The food was divine, the prices fantastic. The pineapple in the pina colada was so fresh that we almost didn't think there was any alcohol in it (there was plenty). If you are on a cruise and tired of Margaritaville and Senor Frogs, come to this perfect hole in the wall.

This little restaurant is tucked inside a small shop. We were seated quickly and shown to a tiny hidden dining area. Friendly service and good prices.
We had piña coladas, avocado filled steak/spices and a baked beef empanada. Everything was delicious.
Highly recommend if you want to try a mix of Puerto Rican food.

I must admit this is one of our first stops in Puerto RIco when there- it is not touristy at any end- had the shrimp stuffed avocado with sweet plaintains which is my favorite with a mango drink - there were others in the restaurant that were restless with the service and were offensive to the waiter- realize you are on island time - sit back and enjoy another mojito and the a/c- the food is worth the wait! looking forward to the next time!!
