Totally disappointed! Expensive and the food look like it was cook like a day before! Chicken breast very salty, the arroz congri with no flavor! A not so good sangria!

The food looked and taste like not recently prepared. The food was cold. The fry complements were grease and did not taste fresh. The texture saggy. Maybe need to order from menu cart instead of the daily menu and visit at lunch rush time.

Off the main Condado strip on Calle Loiza is this great gem of a restaurant. The food here is authentic mostly Puerto Rican but some Cuban and Dominican cooking. The seafood was fresh, the mofongos were a decent size, the appetizers were plentiful and tasted great. Our service for the area was normal but the food more then made up.... More

From the garlic shrimp and corn tamales to start, lamb shank for the entree and the flan for dessert, all were excellent! My sister and I shared all, plenty to eat! Service excellent and just steps away from our hotel, The Wind Chimes. If I go back, would do this all over again.

3 friends went here on a Monday night. we were the only customers in the restaurant. The waitress was pushy about us ordering alcohol. We went here because they had a special for Lasagna and it sounded good. It came with 2 sides for $10. The lasagna had no red sauce at all. It was 3 layers of pasta with... More

This is my favorite dish and my favorite place to eat Cuban food in PR. They serve a hearty amount of succulent food and the staff is friendly. Every time I go I feel like I'm assisting a huge family reunion.

The food was pretty good, but the portions were so big we easily could have shared and felt bad wasting so much food. We stopped in in the middle of the afternoon but barely saw our server. It was a good restaurant, but difficult to give a better rating to in comparison to others nearby that we also ate at.
