“Asked a local and you'll find the great places!”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Asked a local where he likes to lunch and he pointed us to this place. I had to clean down my own table but the food was delicious and the prices were even better! Had the octupus salad with fried plantains and my hubby had chicken. Both great!

“wonderful food and service!”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

I ordered the camarones mofongo relleno (shrimp mofongo) with sweet plantain!!! Oh my goodness was it amazing! I loved the service and the food, they had a very clean atmosphere and very lovely wait staff. the pina colada was also very delicious!

“Good mofongo”
Reviewed May 2, 2012 via mobile

We arrived in ponce at 2, a little late for lunch traffic and too early to check into hotel. We waited 20 minutes for our good. They didn't understand our broken Spanish and it was hard getting coffee with ice. Communication dilemma - no big deal.

The plates of food were so big, hard to finish. But we did and then didn't need dinner. Simple good, if this is going to be your only mofongo go elsewhere. No charm unless you like cafeterias.

It has air conditioning, clean bathrooms and was adequate for our needs. Most locals eat next door but we wanted AC.

“Authentic Authenitic Authentic”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

Our guide asked us what we wanted to eat and we said authentic food. He brought us here. Excellent Ponce food popular with locals. Under $22 for three people.

“Not horrible, but you can skip this one.”
Reviewed April 24, 2012

Food was average, service was a little slow. As others have said, dining here takes much longer than you would expect, so don't visit if you are in a rush.
