the service was prompt informative and accurate the house specialty is seafood and the experience was incredible I believe thi is the most guarded secret in pr for a seafood experience probably beacause the ambiance is rustic and not pretentious and the location inside a small shopping center this has been my best experience with seafood in along time

They prepare the Cod fish fillet with the sauce you prefer . My husband asked for the Filet Mignon in Riquefort sauce . The House salad is delicious. A... More

This restaurant is cozy, non flashy and the furniture appears to be from maybe the 80's. However after dinning in several restaurants island wide. I have to say that the Chef Victor which I was told is the owner. Can really cook like a real chef not a make believe. My halibut was very juicy and taste was just to... More

My expectations for this restaurant was ruined. I just expect more than I receive. Its is a normal restaurant for lunch if you got no time to lose and you want to get seafood. My plate look to be on the freezer and well done cook but isn't fresh fish. no bad no good is an average rest for me

The service is excellent, the tables are well set with a nice tablecloth, good silverware as well as napkins. The food is tops and very well presented as well as delicious. Fresh fish. The lobster is from New Zealand and it is perfect. It was nice to see a family with young children as well as older couples.

This great restaurant is not fancy, nor is located in the traditional metro tourist sectors, but locals know that this is our secret spot for fresh fish (also meats) and excellent menu selections. Whatever you order, always make sure to include the "tostones" (fried green plantains) with every dish. The halibut, hake fish, dover sole, seabass, etc. are always an... More

Our family visited this place for the 3rd time, always clean, ambiance nice, servers so professional and the food simply amazing. We had filet mignon with mushroom sauce, a lamb dish, chillo stuffed with shrimp n spinach, and coconut flan for dessert. Everything was flavorful, and prepared perfectly to order. Woud highly recommend this place and anything on menu.
