We tried this restaurant with the advice of one of our local friend. Everything on the menu is delicious. The service is excellent and there was live music even on a monday night.

Fun place, lots of ambiance. Very good food with many interesting, creative twists. Some would call it fusion cuisine; to me it was just..... yummy!

During a week long stay in San Juan this restaurant was the highlight of my dining. I went with a group of nine family members and we probably ordered about 30% of the items on the menu between us, so I got to taste many dishes, and everything was good to excellent. Everybody was pleased with the food. The gnocchi, calamari and pulpo appetizers, as well as the pork chop, mahi mahi and churrasco were my favorites. Desserts were equally as good and with generous portions.

It's walking distance from hotels around Condado area (Hilton, Conrad, Renaissance) and much better food than what you find at hotel restaurants and slightly less expensive.

The way this place is decorated is awesome and the food is wonderful. Their calamari are really good and the skirt steak with guava sauce is delicious. They can sometimes be a little slow in getting you to a table, but the service in general is good and the staff very personable. I've already been here 2-3 times and its definitely become one of my fail-safe restaurants to go to.

The fish tacos were outstanding, the lentil cream soup fabulous. Main fish course perfect and heavenly desserts made of coconut and chocolate. Plus a very attentive service and reasonable prices. The best!
