Initially we had passed right by this restaurant as it looked like the typical tourist trap but after having it recommended to us by several locals, we gave it a try the next night. We arrived for dinner around 7:30pm on a Saturday evening and it was quite busy. The wait for the table was shorter than expected and we... More

We have eaten at this restaurant numerous times and it was always pretty good! Was warned recently that the food was not as good, but I had to check for myself! The food was cold and overcooked! Our appetizers weren't edible! When you mess up alcapurrias, bacalaitos, platanos and rice and beans that's not acceptable! The waitress was not friendly... More

We dined here as it was recommended on multiple occasions by different uber drivers, and was advertised in magazine and billboards. When we arrived on a Friday night we had a short wait of maybe 25 minutes. There was a decent amount of sitting area outside. It was a very busy and big restaurant. You could tell that they do...

Touristy, down to the costumed wait staff. Often busy, but the place is big, so the wait usually short. Easy walk from the main cruise docks. Food is traditional Puerto Rican cuisine and very tasty. Best mojito s in town, if you like the taste of rum, mint, and lime. Good place for an afternoon snack and drink.

This place is overrated. We went there friday night after the Bacardi factory.... we needed food. The wasitress was polite but the guy who brought the food to the table literally dropped the food on the table. Not sure if he was having a bad day or what, but they could have let someone else bring the food out. We... More

We went to this restaurant on a recommendation of a friend and coworker who is from Puerto Rico and we were glad we did. We had to wait a while, but once sat we really enjoyed the cool vibe of the place and the food was great. The mofongo was excellent as was the skirt steak. A must go if... More
