After a long series of flights and after a day of sun, my friend and I asked the front desk and valet of the Sheraton where a good little place was to eat and close. Well it could not be any closer unless it was right inside of the hotel. They both stated it was an outdoor restaurant like it was something bad! When in San Juan in Feb from Canada, you want to be outside. They recommended the steak.
We arrived and were greeted with smiling faces and helpful staff. We chose a smaller table for ourselves. As soon as we agreed to share the trio fajitas, the server brought an extra table. Little did we know that we would need it. Order a starter of the fried plantains - and they were amazing. The hot sauce they come with is so good. A very large portion for the price.
I ordered the white sangria and my friend ordered the red sangria. Both were amazing. I am a sangria snob. I have tried sangrias on 3 continents and over 14 counties - this was in my top 3 (including Mexico and Spain)
Then she brings out the tortillas and the sides for the fajitas. That alone need the extra table. We order the trio - shrimp chicken and steak. The steak was so delicious, we fought over who would have more, as I am not a chicken girl. The chicken was even really good and the shrimp were large and cooked perfectly. we both eat three fajitas and there was still left over fixings. This is a great plate to share.
The atmosphere was perfect. They played awesome music from latino artists!! I have a playlist on my phone that contained all the songs they were playing so I was in heaven. Then they had alive entertainment towards the end of our meal. She was incredible. and we stayed longer just to listen to her.
The service was amazing. You never felt rushed and they let us take our time and made great recommendations. The menu had so many good items that we decided to come back for lunch the next day.
The next day - were were back. During the day it had such a different feel and look to it, but I liked it just as much. I ordered the wrap I really wanted to order the night before and was not disappointed. My friends has the tacos, $3.50 each, she ordered the chicken and shrimp. I tried them and they were great!!!
This is a must eat at place when in San Juan!!
