This place was great, it was late about 9:00pm and the DJ was doing a good job of keeping us entertained (american, latin, pop), with a bit of karaoke mixed in, performed by the staff. We sat at the hightop tables, asked lour waitress for some drink suggestions and off we were. She was great and suggested drinks that were... More

My wife ordered beans and rice and thought she would receive re-fried pinto beans and Spanish rice, because this restaurant claims to serve Mexican Food. What she got was not what she expected. The portion of rice was about the size of a small ice cream scoop. In a small condiment cup there were about 7 black beans and gravy.... More

After a long series of flights and after a day of sun, my friend and I asked the front desk and valet of the Sheraton where a good little place was to eat and close. Well it could not be any closer unless it was right inside of the hotel. They both stated it was an outdoor restaurant like it... More

We recently stayed in San Juan and visited Ficus Mexican Bar & Grill. It is located just a stones throw from the convention center. The entrance confused us because it was clogged up with trash and cases of beverages, but we eventually realized it was the primary entrance (strange). The restaurant is completely outdoors but almost all of the tables... More

I came here for lunch with my coworker during our break from a convention. We had to sit at the bar because the server wouldn't go by our table to take our order or give us menus. When we finally placed our order we waited for 40 minutes only to be told that it was going to take another 20... More

Great service and atmosphere! We were in for a conference and we're looking for something close to hotel. Next to the hotel and was very fairly priced.

We came here after being frustrated by the lack of service at the Sushi bar at the Sheraton. What a difference. Servers were awesome - fast, friendly, and very knowledgeable - and the food was great! We will return!

The service was great, chicken fajitas were good, margarita not so good, guacamole needs salt, pork burrito is good. Its a outside restaurant with very loud music.

On a business convention and came to this restaurant for lunch. I ordered a burrito and my colleague a hamburger. The food was cold, the rice my burrito came with was hard and old. The taste reminds you of fast food and taco bell. The service was very slow. Not a good experience. Two stars just for location. If you're... More
