We had a great time here. Carla explained just about all of the items on the menu. We practically had the whole top floor to ourselves. Great dining experience, authentic Puerto Rican food.

We stopped here for a late dinner our last night in Old San Juan and we were not disappointed. I had the shrimp mofongo and my wife had some kind of fish mofongo. Both were very good.
