This is our favorite lunch place . (We haven't had dinner here yet). It has the best relaxed atmosphere and a beautiful setting. Great staff and wonderful food! We love eating there every year.

Visited this restaurant for lunch right after opening for the day. Sat on their big marquesina, with nice breeze to off set the heat of the middle of the day in PR. Waitress was friendly, patient, and our food was cooked fresh to order. The menu consists of many authentic items and complete meals and deserts. It sure was hard to limit my choices! It tasted great and home cooked. The grounds and restaurant were very well kept.

Food was excellent and they helped us choose a great meal. We were vegetarian and they were very helpful. Authentic food with great options.

The Tres Leches cake was to die for. Quite with good ambience. Pina Colada was also excellent!!

We ventured here on the Trip Advisor recommendations and weren't disappointed. It took us a few tries to find it. Our google maps took us to a neighborhood the first time we tried to go. The restaurant is actually behind Advanced Auto Parts, off of HWY 3, near Walmart. However, it is on it's one garden and felt quiet and isolated on the patio.

The service was amazing, especially Magdahlia and Alex. Magdahlia recommended most of our dishes, took care of the kids meals, and we were amazed by the food. The Grouper Filet in Garlic sauce was melt in your mouth fresh, divinely flavored and the side of rice and beans and plantains were terrifically seasoned. Alex kept our drinks refreshed and taught us some spanish!

The mojitos were some the best we've ever had and the chocolate cake for dessert was rich, moist, and decadent. This restaurant is everthing the reviews have stated it to be. Much less expensive than any of the mediocre food at the El Conquistador.

Wonderful menu with a variety of home style Cuban and Puerto Rican food. We loved talking to the owner and chef who delighted us with stories about how this wonderful restaurant came to be. We had a wonderful entrees of shrimp with rice and grouper. My husband said the grouper was the best he every had. The mojitos had an ample quantity of mint and really hit the spot. The cost of an appetizer, the entrees and cocktails was really affordable.
As other reviewers noted, it's hard to find but it's worth the effort!
