La Familia serves traditional Puerto Rican specialties like mofongo as well as pizza. The chicken mofongo was one of the best we had in Puerto Rico. Visited after a suggestion from Tanama River Adventures. Definitely stop here for lunch if you are in the area for an adventure trip.

So, so good. I had the langosta Mofongo and my wife had the red snapper. It was a great meal. Excellent staff!

We tried the lobster pizza there and it was excellent. Restaurant was clean, service was good and prices were reasonable.

You want pizza in the mountains? This is definitely the place to visit. Great for families with kids. But not only pizza is served here... Great mofongos are prepared here! Delicious, fun and great food.

The Chunky, Garlicky mofongo was awesome. I liked it better than the creamier versions we had eaten in San Juan. The portions were very large. For lunch we ended up just ordering 2 main dishes for the 4 of us. They were also very fairly priced.

One of the best mofongos I taste it. It was served with a "wood cup" and not that dry (like some places). They claim use fresh platano and in a traditional way (not mixing with rice and beans). Unfortunately they dont serve alcoholic beverage, but they have other sort of drink that worth try, like the coconut juice. Waiter was... More

This is a casual spot located off a winding road near Bailey Zip Line Adventures in Utuado. The staff is very friendly, food is reasonably priced and they serve generous portions. The mofongo is huge! Non-alcoholic drinks only but the pina colada was tasty. Great place for lunch.

We stopped for lunch because we were hungry. We were warmly greeted. Plenty of tables and several fans to make a cooling breeze. Menu had great selections. We opted for a poquito size pizza. It was plenty for the two of us. The pizza was a delightful thin crust. The toppings and sauce were delicious. The restaurant is close to... More
