We were there several times. It's a true family affair: Luis (owner) and Carmen (the chef and wife) and son Raphael make this place a very unique and special local restaurant. If you are lucky, you may even run into a famous salsa musician who used to perform with Tito Puente who has now retired in Luquillo and hangs out... More

If you can find it, you will be glad that you did. Go eat and enjoy the great hospitality from the owner and god food from the kitchen. Freshly prepared food that tasted very good. Also, great Pina Coladas. Two people in our party of four ordered the coladas and the owner brought a third glass of what was left... More

The food is wonderful but they are charging major U.S. city price for a hole in a wall type of family establishment (avg. $30+ per person for lunch w appetizer at $11). In the fish market you can get 5 lobsters for $25 while they charged $22 for the lobster creole which had one lobster in it. Would have rated... More

We enjoyed a lovely anniversary dinner here. Luis was friendly and hospitable. The food was delicious. We even ordered more food as we ate because we wanted to try other things based on what we liked. It was a quiet evening with just a few local men at another table. The one man enjoyed breaking into song through out the... More

I have eaten a lot of Puerto Rican food living in New York city. However this place surpasses anything I have ever had.i ate the lobster creole and it was a moving experience. I had to pace myself because I didn't want the experience to end.

The owners were there last night without any help due to stormy weather and still managed to serve up fantastic plates of authentic Puerto Rican cuisine with a smile. Our family had a wonderful evening. Fish cooked perfectly. Subtle flavors. Delicious desserts. Don't miss this gem.

My husband and I went for dinner last night and it truly was one of the best meals I've had! The chicken mofongo was tender, flavorful, and sweet... And my husband's chicken was delicious. The owner made us feel welcome and we plan to return soon!

Owner and his wife are the only people working this quaint, hidden gem. Food was fantastic!. We got a little confused because restaurant appeared to be closed. Found out we had to ring doorbell to get in. Owner got us talking to other diners. He was awesome and so friendly. I wish his wife had come out and introduced herself.... More

If you're looking for some cuisine to hit your core (in a good way) and a place to feel like you're family, then look no further if you're in the area. I was on vacation and stumbled upon this place while looking for some Puerto Rican soul food. As soon as I walked through the door, the owner welcomed me... More

My parents are Puerto Rican but I grew up in the states. Luckily my Mom is an amazing cook so we were introduced to Puerto Rican cuisine at an early age. The food at this restaurant took me back to the meals my mother used to make when I was a kid. If you want to eat like the locals,... More
