Been here many times. Before the last time the food was not good like before. Yesterday just horrible. The rice is nothing like it was before NOTHING like it tasted before. Churrasco OMG pure salt burned hard. This restaurant was one of my #1 no more.

Bad food. Bad service. The waiter seemed like he hated his job or we were an inconvenience for wanting to be attended. Over priced for rice and beans and tacky, ugly decor. Just no. We stopped by chance and will never ever return.

Their rice mamposteado is great. I had a skirt steak with mushroom sauce with it. It was so good I had an additional order made to take home to my hubby. The only thing is they are a bit slow but it is worth the wait.

This is a great place to sample a wide variety of Puerto Rican dishes. You're on an island, so go for the fish and seafood. I ordered the Dorado with garlic. For a side, try one made with yuca or plantains - delicious. I suggest you share plates, and leave room for flan or some other dessert. The prices aren't... More

We were on a mission trip and had been eating some fantastic local home made food and a lot of peanut butter sandwiches. We needed a break and stopped in. It was really nice. I felt a little under dressed but they never said a word about it. The staff spoke English which was not necessary but was helpful. I... More

All were fresh and delicious. All the side dishes were excellent. Generous portions. Very friendly service. One of them spoke very good English to my... More

The food here is good, but it is overpriced. I ordered a dish and wanted the side to be their specialty "arroz mamposteao". They charged me $4 extra for that. My wife and I were so excited that they offered a plantain soup, only to discover it was likely a green plantain, savory soup, similar to chicken stock, and someone's... More
