I friend recommended this place for the mofongo. we went at lunch time on a Saturday. The lot was full & it seemed busy. We were seated after a few minutes. We got menus and it seemed a bit pricey for the neighborhood, considering the lower priced options just within a few blocks. So we waited about 5 minutes. No... More

We were looking for some good Mofongo after we had it on a cruise to Puerto Rico. My co-worker is from Puerto Rico so I asked him where to go. He told me to go to LA Casona Restaurant in Tampa and he was spot on! We around 3pm or so since the place isn’t that big and gets crowded... More

Food was very good but the service here is terrible. I ordered the mofongo with chicken. It had to have been sitting for a long time at the pass as it was quite cold. When I told the server, she took the dish back. When she returned, the dish was the same one she took back. She had thrown it... More

Being Hispanic I believe I know about authentic Puerto Rican food, this place hands down is the best around town! Its clean, the waitresses and waiters are super friendly, we bring our family from out of town here every time they come to visit Florida. So not pass this place up!

Don't get me wrong the food was def typical Puerto Rican cuisine and though not that bad it was not what I expected! I was raised in Puerto Rico and since I have been back at the states I've been wanting a good typical Puerto Rican meal that I could conveniently pick up. The mofongo I had was bathed in... More

I found this restaurant over a year ago while looking for a good mofongo; which is hard to find in Tampa. The mofongo and any other dish on the menu was terrific. My business partner and I visited this restaurant frequently and shared our experience with co-workers and family. In my last visit on Saturday, September 12th I wanted to... More
