This excellent restaurant is permanently closed. Rumors that Willo Benet, one of the best chefs in Puerto Rico will open a new restaurant elsewhere are running.

Went there for a Saint Valentines dinner and it was a good choice. The service was excellent from the beginning till the end. The food was exquisite as well as the deserts. This is a fine dinning restaurant that you must go.

Chef Wilo Benet - PR Celebrity Chef. What a great meal full of flavor. Love his Pegao Bites, Gouda Cheese Parisenne with Guava Sauce, Risotto de Gandules and Bistec Encebollado. Great for Special occasions, Family, Friends or Business.

The tasting menu was fun, beautifully presented, on time and inventive. Some were a bit too much to ask for my Boricua palate (risotto, cheese and gandules is a bit off for me) but I loved to go through the concept. My husband's beef tenderloin...More
