“Great little restaurant in Luquillo”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

We found this restaurant recommendation on trip advisor and we literally stumbled upon it one night, it's a little hard to find, located in the back of a souvenir shop off a side street in Luquillo. The owner greeted us and was so friendly, his wife is the cook and she CAN cook! We had a delicious appetizer sampler. We tried the Red Snapper in the Creole Sauce, the Shrimp Mofongo and the Churrasco. Everything was delicious and the creole sauce was so different. We enjoyed our meal and the service, even the homemade rum shooter after dinner with the owner! We will recommend this restaurant to friends visiting the area.

“A hidden gem... Great Food & Service!”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

Even though we live in Puerto Rico, I had not heard of this Restaurant before. I checked Trip Advisor for a Restuarant in the Luquillo/Rio Grande area to go with my family while we were on vacation and this Restaurant was a good option because of the reviews it had. And, boy it did live up to the reviews it has. The service provided by Luis was amazing. We called before to ask for directions and to ask if reservations were needed because we had a 7 person group that included 3 childrens. When we arrived they were expecting us with the table ready. The place is a little small but very cozy. The food for the children came out quickly and before the adults food which allowed for them to eat before and be calm. The food was amazing with great flavor and well cooked. I will surely go back there and recommend it to any person looking for a Restaurant in Luquillo.

“Good service!”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

Very unusual, small restaurant but big with flavor. Loved the service. Even though it was a lil hard to find, we called for directions and found it fast after talking with them. Overall it was a good experience. Would definitely go again.

“Authentic & delicious”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

Luis and Maria have a lovely small Puerto Rican restaurant reasonably priced. Clean as my own home. A bit tricky to find but well worth it. Lobster gumbo loaded with lobster. Everything prepared quickly, served nicely. Great piña coladas. We returned 3 times. Best food & value in area.

“Great food, warm welcome.”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

As described by other patrons, the food was very good. This was our first experience with local cuisine and my first taste of shrimp mofongo. We were the first customers for lunch. Luis was welcoming and happy to offer tips for local sights. My entire family enjoyed the meal very much. The experience was a very nice introduction to the community.
