Poor service. Don’t go if you want a quick dinner. Super crowded, popular eatery. Mofongo was excellent, but my son got the beef tenderloin and it was as hard as a rock.

I love this restaurant but for some reason, maybe it was a Holiday, it was so full, and service was very slow. There were not enough employees. The Mofongo was smaller than other times, thanks it was good. Prices are still OK. Watch out for...More

Extremely busy dinner and beyond; great local cuisine, cool beer, and free wi-fi. A cheap escape of more expensive locales in the same area serving the same dishes.

The place open at 2 am. The sercice was good and very fast. You can select a lot of Puertorrican food and sea plates. I recommend the Mached Plaintain with fish. The price was good so I fully recommend this place in San Juan.

The most noisy restaurant ever. To make things worst every kind of meat delivered to the table was chewy and cheap. The bathrooms are a nightmare. Overall service is terrible. Expensive for the low quality you receive. Not a redeeming factor for this place.
