Awaited for an hour as no reservations are accepted. Had to leave to another restaurant as the management never achieved accommodations. No service provided while waiting. We had to make our way to the bar and request / wait for drinks (30 min.).

The restaurant is small and cozy. The service and the food are great! The waiters are very helpful. Excellent lunch spot if you have more than an hour. The presentation of all meals is five star, and the best thing is that everything tastes as good as it look. Everything that I've tried has been delicious. But last visit I had a chocolate cake with nutella that was unbelievable!

Nice place for authentic Puerto Rican cuisine.

Their starter with the pigeon peas and chips are excellent! Portions are a good size and Marilyn's recommendations did not disappoint.

This place is just awesome! They serve real Puerto Rican food and their dishes are very creative. The mojitos are definitely to die for. I tried the passion fruit mojito and the guava mojito....both of them came with real fruit in them, Our bartender Carlitos was so cool. He knew a lot about liquor history anf the making of the different cocktails! The ceviche was so good!

Overall, a good meal. They weren't stingy with the sangria, although the bar was slow. We had the grilled conch salad, which was tangy and tasty; the cerdo leneo, which my husband said was smokey and yummy. Our entree was the grilled whole red snapper -- fresh, moist, and flaky, and the sauce was light and good. Seemed a little pricey ($5 for a small side salad) but a pleasant evening.
