We had the red snapper with coconut rice and garlic sauce. It was amazing (wife approved!). My son had the baby skirt steak with fries and garlic butter. Delicious and addictive. Service was fantastic. Word of warning: the mojitos are dangerously smooth.

Well known area restaurant frequented by visitors and locals alike. Rice with steak was delicious as was the seafood mofungo. Both pork dishes ordered were overcooked and dry. Fun stop, would revisit, just no pork.

Food was not bad but could be overrated.. Service was terrible but it was definitely a homestyle laid back environment.. Would come back for the fried red snapper

We had so much fun eating chicken and crab mofomgos for the first time! Waiter spoke broken English and so charming! Just minutes from Gran Melia Resort and love music made our evening complete!
