Having never been to Puerto Rico, my family had no idea where to find an authentic Puerto Rican meal. We found El Gigante Dormido on our hotel website as it was only 3 miles away.

It isn't often when a small restaurant accepts a party of 30 people, during lunchtime, with 15 minutes heads up. Then they proceeded to give us a whole section of the restaurant (as opposed to breaking up our party). After a delicious meal, the owner (who had been extremely attentive all meal) pulled out a guitar and sang. When we... More

The only drawback was its limited menu and a slow service (the restaurant was not that full and we had to wait a considerable amount of time for our main dishes). Nonetheless, the food was good and the... More

As always, food is excellent and portions are fair enough. You cannot skip the "pasteles" as an appetizer...very very good! The ambient is as always charming...Edwin will please you with his guitar and songs...excellent place for lunch...

If your looking for authentic puertorrican food you have to visit. It's small so don't expect a large restaurant. Service is really good and the owner always stops by and makes you feel welcome. I can take clients and friends for some good sangria and pasteles (which are traditional puertorrican christmas plates).

Great portions. The dessert "Tres leches" was excellent. The music was entertaining. I came for the risotto and it was very good. The offered a skirt or shrimp risotto. They had coconut water and fresh orange juice.
