We were very disappointed that the on-menu was not representative of what is REALLY on the menu. I would estimate that only 50% of what you see on their on-line menu is on the in-house bill. A real family business. The service was OK, but nothing special. Had the sampler as an appetizer. Empanadas were quite good, but everything else was dry and wasn't packed with flavor. Pork entrees were dry and seemed overlooked. Cocktails were good as was the coffee.

While ok I was expecting food with more spice. Basic food from PR not done up in a gourmet manner. If you are ok with basic stuff and fried plantains you will enjoy this place. Nice attentive service.

The food at this restaurant is made to order, so expect to relax and enjoy Salsa Music, while you wait. It is well worth it. This is my all time favorite restaurant in the area. Friendly service in homey atmosphere.

I have been here twice and the food is pretty good. They have a nice tower of samplers to start that had many of the Cuban appetizers to try. This is really the better part of the meal. The meals are not bad. I have went with several people from work here and they really like it. Lots of seating and good for lunch.

This review would be five stars if the AMBIANCE matched the AMAZING FOOD!!
This chef owned and operated restaurant should be in in NYC-the food is that good.
It is located in Wallingford on a busy main road that should be redone for ambiance sake-try the whole snapper fish on the menu-also the chicken wrapped in a dish bacon-unlike ANYTHING you have had-
Efraim is the best-he will make whatever id not on the menu if you need a specific-EVERYTHING in fresh.
