This is more like a "fonda" for lunch, but they also serve what you ask for. My recommendation is to ask for their red kidney beans ("habichuelas coloradas")... are amazing, just like if they were cooked by a grandmother 👵. Definitely you can have a lunch on a budget, and you won't regret. They serve a lot. Highly recommended!

I visited this place today for lunch. The food is good and the service received was fine but the place is in desperate need of an overhaul. This place is dirty, old, smelly, etc... They still using old curtains that make the place dark inside. The floor is reed, just old and dark. Cables hanging in the wall. Extractor hole... More

Awful experience! Waiter was not friendly or helpful-never asked how we were doing with the meal-never offered dessert menu I had to ask if they had any--the meat was not well cooked ; very poor service. Perhaps they had a bad night--we had an Awful experience. I will not be visiting this one again when I'm back in the island.

Anyone who has written a positive review of this restaurant in its current condition is way off base. I was mislead by some positive reviews to give it a try. Many restaurants are closed on Mondays so with few options we dined here. First of all getting to the restaurant is impossible with the little cut off road you have... More

Decided to try the skirt steak with arroz and habichuelas (very thin skirt steak). Mofongo is boiled in water not fried. Drinks are cheap. Service is terrible. Food took 55 minutes to arrive. Sorry...but never going back.

We're a puertorrican family from Carolina that stopped by to try eating at this place. 58 minutes for the food to arrive at our table. A shrimp mofongo that had only three shrimps, a tasteless mofongo, an a sad soup. Friend pork cut in really small pieces.

This place is small, but still able to make you really comfortable. It is a family-friendly place where you can bring your kids at whatever hour without any worries. Bar is located at a separate room, and it seems to be the most visited room of the restaurant. :-) Food variety is great, but that's nothing compared to how it... More

This restaurant was these place to go 20 years ago. Today it was just sad. I had to convince my sister to stay as she was ready to bolt when she opened the door. I probably would have left too if this had not been our second attempt at eating out on a major PR holiday. The mismatched tables, chipped... More
