This was our first restaurant experience in Puerto Rico, and it offered the best Puerto Rican food of the trip. The calamari was possibly the tastiest I've ever had. The food was great, the service was great, and the atmosphere was fun. This was recommended to us twice between arriving on the island and leaving our lodging for dinner, and there is a reason for that: it is an awesome place to eat! It won't break the bank, either.

I went here in December 2015 with my parents and a local friend. At first, I was skeptical, because it is in such a tourist-y area. I thought I wanted something more local, but I was mistaken. This restaurant has all of the traditional Puerto Rican foods and flavors. We ordered a few mains and a few sides and shared. Highly recommend the fish tacos, yucca mofongo, and octopus salad (ceviche style.) Great atmosphere, people sitting inside and outside, lots of families and young crowds alike enjoying the incredibly fresh seafood.
