The ambiance inside of this little quaint restaurant is very cool but that is the last good thing I can say about it. The food does taste good but the portions are microscopically tiny and way over priced. For example the Poached eggs and asparagus includes one very small quail sized egg over four asparagus strips. No toast or muffin included in the exorbitant $10 price tag. Even for my petite wife this was only an appetizer sized portion.

The poor guy sitting next to us asked for a side of toast. They forgot. When he reminded them, they finally brought it about ten minutes after he finished his meal. We waited an hour between the time we ordered and when our meals were delivered and there were only three other occupied tables in the whole place.

No apologies for the food being late. We had to keep asking for more water and coffee.

OK enough complaining ... do yourself a favor go a couple blocks down Ashford and find another place because this place just isn't worth it.

Routine/limited menu choices. Average service (which means somewhat slow when in San Juan). Wanted fish so ordered the Snapper. Large portion & It was prepared very nicely. Would go back in a pinch, but there are many better choices within the Condado area.
