My wife and I heard numerous raves about this restaurant, so we were disappointed by the tasteless food. The location was great - in the heart of the action in Old Town San Juan - but that was the only impressive part. Walk two minutes further to la Madre.

Great puertorrican food! The portions are healthy and they are on the fast lane I mean the place was packed and plates were coming out left and right. Good Food large variety of choices, rice , meats salads, soups. We ate here after a tour of Old San Juan about midday and we came back to life with the food!

This place is a must!!! One of the best skirt steaks I've ever had. Ribs are to die for. Shrimp Gumbo is off the charts. Service is excellent. Just a short walk from the fort. Park at the fort for 2.00 an hour.
