The lobster was not fresh! The rice didn’t taste good plus, the portion was small. Even though the menu gives you a variety of fish options, there is only one fish option available and one price, $25.00.

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!
