Ordered a rib eye & T- bone...sad, truly sad...thin cuts with no flavor...couldn't even get the fries right...not the place for a steak!!!

Obviously its a little difficult to find...but we found it. Once you arrive the setting is awesome.
The service was a little slow. Most dishes come 'family' style. Apparently everything was tasty b/c the to go box was small!
I had the ribs and some steak...both were good.
Overall it was a good experience and I would return. I would also try their location in San Juan (skip Raices...see other review...)

It's a restaurant too far away. Expensive compare to plate. A plate of $74.99 a lot of meet ( ribs, chicken, sirloin, churrasco ) may be to 5 persons with very few additions, with only 4 plantains for one person ( tostones) , very small fries ( for one person) and a service of rice to one person too. The drinks are separately. We paid $113.00 to our party of 5 and we finished with hungry. A separately of plain rice ( a service is for one person ) was $5.00 additional and a service of plantains for one person $3.00 additional. not recommended.

We did not come across this restaurant on our first two visits as it a bit further down the road from many of the top listed hotels. While they sell some dishes for one, the menu is designed for group sharing. The two of us had a tasty meal of steak, paella and plaintains with plenty leftover to box up and take with us. I would definitely recommend this location if you are not concerned with "ambiance." The atmosphere remind me of a stateside family steakhouse with bigger portions. I would definitely visit again.
