Waited to be seated and nobody came, they passed us by and every waitress ignored us. When we asked someone sat us, we waited more than 20 min and nobody came, tables sat later were ordering before us. We ended up leaving and nobody asked.

Menu is the common Puerto Rican Mofongo, sea food and fried pork that can be found almost everywhere in the island. Food flavor and presentation was good. Only problem here was service. Not enough waiters or waitresses to take care of such a large place....More

The food took almost an hour, but it was completely worth it. The fried fish, the "churrasco", the "mofongo" and the fried pork were great. The service was really nice.
