My girlfriend and I dined here after two people and our hotel recommended it to us. We were not disappointed. They don't take reservations, but there are plenty of bars nearby where you can grab a drink or two and chat with the locals. It's well worth the wait.

We had the skirt steak, chicken wings, and arroz con pollo. I highly recommend all three dishes.

The service was very very poor; the waiter was extremely slow, non-friendly, never asked for water or drink refills; food was too salty, fair, nothing special; previously closed due to tax evasion, therefore, their alcohol license was lost (It's a BYOB). Next day I had stomach cramps and gastritis!! It's sad to say but: I don't recommend this restaurant to friends, family or tourists.

This was the best restaurant in Puerto Rico until they were closed for tax evasion, as a result they lost their alcohol licence and is now BYOB. The BYOB really makes it loose the feeling of a special dinning out experience. The food was good as always, but not a local charm anymore we where the only locals there all others tourist.

We went to jose enrique after hearing positive reports from hotel staff. Food was fair to good. Byob but did not tell us that when i called. They do not take reservations and would not tell me how long the typical wait time would be. When we arrived had to wait an hour and a half for our table. Waiter was very slow never asked if we wanted a refill of our drinks. While waiting for our taxi the hostess called customer saying their table was available. Then a taxi of 6 men arrived hostess initially told them they would need to wait for a table. They noticed the open table hostess explained she just called the customer to come to be seated. One man talked her into giving up the table to them. We watched the group of women arrive and hostess told them their table was not ready yet and would have to wait longer till other customers finished their meal. Will not be going there again.
