I was searching for a place that had fresh red snapper and/or seafood in general. The food was incredibly delicious as well as the drinks. The service was great as well. A must see place when visiting or even when living in Puerto Rico!

No ocean view. Small parking. We had lobster and fish accompanied by mofongo. Great taste , well presented food. Lobster portions are small but tasty. Service was good however there were not that many customers at the place when we arrive.
