“my favorite restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

I love this restaurant! Carli and Fausto ( the bartender) are lovely people. The cafe is very cozy and artsy. The food is excellent and the music is out out of this world,what more can one wish for?

“Absolute gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013 via mobile

This place is absolutely fantastic. White table clothes, real candle light and 12 small tables. If your looking for intimate, relaxing, and unique; look no further. Eat really good food while being serenaded by No other than Carli Muñoz (Beach Boys and other amazing artists)on the piano. Which by the way is as nice as can be. Sit back and just enjoy the moment!

“Great for the music”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

Good place to drop in. The bartender was friendly and you can't beat the music. We never arrived in time to eat, but it was a great place to end the evening.

“Love this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

Been here several times over the past 8 years - great food, unbelievable music, lovely atmosphere...never disappoints. It is always one of my highlights when I come to San Juan. If you haven't been here you are missing out. I should also mention that the staff is top notch!

“Great ambiance, great food, great music!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013 via mobile

A find in the Old City San Juan! As soon as you walk in you are enveloped in a cozy, romantic atmosphere. Wait staff is courteous without being overwhelming and they know their food! Our dinner was delicious--my risotto with squash and prawns was amazing and my husband's seafood pasta excellent. Highlights were mojitos and their delectable desert: mini donuts filled with pumpkin melted in the mouth! And, when Carli sat down at the great piano and played jazz, all worries from the everyday life disappeared! Definitely a must go!!!
