Very famous place to taste a variety of dishes made by "platanos" from pizza to sandwiches. Want something different go there.

Two words, mofongo island. Mofongo stuffed with any meat or seafood, surrounded by plantain soup. Awesome! Everything else is spectacular. Great views of the Aguada mountains and great food. Must try!

Super excited to visit this place because my husband raved about how good it is. Sadly when we went there it was NOT good at all. For a place who specializes in plátanos it lacks just that. The platano soup is very salty, and has one note flavor, mushy banana. The fried chicken, fridge pork was dry dry dry, hard... More

We had heard so much pull about this place, that it was hrs to find but well worth it. We had no problem finding it using Waze. We were staying in Aguada and went for lunch. It was not a disappointment. The food, views was well worth the $17 spent with lots left over.

I love the service and the atmosphere. The trip taken is enjoyable but please call first and make sure it is open. Generally open from Wed. Thru Fri. late afternoon and evenings. Beautiful countryside and very friendly people and I highly recommend it!

I had tried before to find this place to no avail, but thanks to Google Maps, it was a 40 minute drive from downtown Mayagüez. The road to get there is curvy and narrow, and you have to be watchful not the miss the left turn before Colmado Brady, but once you find it, the expedition is totally worth it.... More

For platanos lovers this is the place. All plates are made with platanos and good food. Good prices. You have to wait around 1 hour to be served due to the hundred of hungry people visiting the place but you will not be disappointed. One of the favorite place for bikers. Try to go early.
