“Must go”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

A great place to have authentic island food the kind abuela would make. Worth the visit, but the best times are on the weekend.

“Very good chicken wings”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Very good food and appetizers. I was nicely surprise when I had their chicken wings, to me the best in Boquerón.

Had dinner here one night and very generally happy.
Sangria - best in boqueron
Service was great
Kareokee was fun
The filled turnovers were great
Jambolya was good
Shrimp entree was great
Prices very reasonable

Other meals that we ordered were OK but not great (salmon)
Didn't love the mofongo (probably just us)

Nice night and atmosphere

“Best Mofongo-best price, Boqueron PR”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

This place is a gem. It offers casual atmosphere, with both indoor and outdoor tables. Located in the town of Boqueron, in Cabo Rojo, PR. It is worth driving to Boqueron. The “poblado” has a main street by the water filled with bars, stores, and restaurants. It is easy to find. D ‘Tapas is close to the draw bridge by the Marina. Every Thursday D TAPAS has Mofongo relleno for $6, half the price! What? Not a smaller version but the regular size dish. At this price, you can get any of the mofongo filled with seafood, octopus, or chicken! Only the Mofongo with Pork is not on special that day. But the regular price at $9 is great and the size of the serving is plenty big! Plus they have tacos at $1 or $2 on thursday. So good! The mofongo is cooked green plantains, mashed and seasoned filled with either seafood or chicken in a broth, or the fried pork version that comes with yummy broth on the side. The prices in this restaurant are very reasonable and the portions are big!! Last time we visited this place it was full, so we ate in another restaurant down the street at the Marina Beach club, a bit more expensive. Well, the service was bad and extremely slow, the food was not good, and they did not have any fish! It was more expensive, not a nicer location, and the food was not good! Another day, while staying at Boqueron, I heard that "El Fogon de la Curva" in Rincon had great food. We drove all the way there to eat what was possibly the worst “Mofongo con carne” and worst fried whole fish I ever had in PR. Why waste your time going anywhere else!! D’Tapas is the place to go for the best Mofongo at the best price, in a fun and casual atmosphere. And they have other great choices in the menu, and great drinks. The sangria pitcher was worth it and so good!

“Worth the drive from San Juan”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

We drove 2 1/2 hours to Boqueron from San Juan to see the sunset... which we missed, but our dinner at D'tapas made the trip worthwhile. This place may not look like much, but you will be pleasantly surprised. The sangria was AMAZING... I have never tasted sangria that good and would have happily smuggled gallons of it home, if I could have figured out how. We had the grouper and the salmon and both were absolutely delicious. The staff is very friendly and helpful, they even let me borrow a phone charger so we'd have GPS and maps for the way back to San Juan in the dark... a total lifesaver! Next time we are in San Juan, we will not hesitate to drive 2 1/2 hours again, just to have dinner at D'tapas. It was that good.
