The food was terrrrrrible. All 4 of us got something different and all 4 entrees were terrible. Do not go here. Plenty of other places around to waste your money and appetite on this place.

Ivan and his crew took great care of our group of 10 people. The food was really good-ceviche, mofongo with seafood, everyone liked their food. The service was great also!! Nice portions that were very reasonably priced. Would definitely go back!!

Wonderfully accommodating for our party of 9 with small children! Great food, drinks, and service. Red Snapper with mofongo was amazing! Our server (Juanita?) was terrific with the children, and completely lovely. The complementary shots were very nice as well! I will recommend this place to anyone who is vacationing in the area.

Ate dinner here once, but had several desserts! For dinner, had Mofongo de Camarones which was delicious! Some of the restaurants at Palmas tend to be heavy handed on the salt - and the chef accomodated a light salt request. The flan choices were so good (there was Nutella flan for hazelnut fans). Seating, as in many of the venues... More

The waitress Juana gave us great ideas and the owner Ivan was so accommodating! I loved the food here so much I went for my birthday dinner on the last night of my trip. Enjoy this place, everyone! Seems like reservations are needed at night bc it had a wait. If I'm fortunate to go back to Humacao again, I'd... More

My friends and I decided to eat here on our 2nd night in town. When we entered the restaurant the first thing I saw was all the TVs so I didn't expect much more than bar food. Boy was I wrong.
