A place where you can eat good food of Puerto Rico. A good mofongo, the octopus salad is good. The lobster a la criole very good. To finish some "casquitos de guayaba" with white cheese. Everything was excellent. Reasonable prices.

My most recent visit was with a few childhood friends, it was the perfect place to catch up, the waiter was very relaxed and we never felt hurried.

This is a very good place to eat if you are looking to have local fresh food including seafood. I had the fried "chapín" fish with "mamposteao" rice which was delicious!

We have been in this place numerous times and the food is always consistent and good. My only complaint is that sometimes they take long to serve you, but other times it's ok. The menu is varied and offers plenty of options but fish dishes are always a good option.
