very good food. Nice ambience. Cozy. Excellent service. but it was a bit slow at the beginning while waiting for the appetizer. The ontario plate its DIVINE. The honey glaze over the skirt steak its amazing. Event the coffe was good.

Our waiter Jose was very professional and kind. definitely will come back again.

We received excellent service and the quality of the food and how flexible they were in mixing and matching ingredients was great. Generous cocktails and a variety of sangrias, too. I had a veal chop which was prepared beautifully.

Once you go, you'll go back! Had dinner for eight on Christmas Day, and it was the last present of the night. Empanadas (chicken, crab, calamari and camarones) delicious. The pastry was unusually light that left you to really enjoy the filing. Fried snapper slightly curved so it would sit upright (did not lay on its side) so both sides had a equal crispy presentation. Oh the meat was moist and very tasty, with garlic sauce on the side. Freshly made pique salsa to add tang if you desired. Loved the pink beans and rice. Don't forget to try the sangria, white or red. The staff was also extremely accommodating to non-Spanish speaking guests (ask for Nancy or Juan). Went back on last night in Ponce for another fabulous meal, it was like falling in love again!

Great restaurant for a family dinner or lunch. The food is great and the service too. I tried the churrasco steak with honey glaze and platanutres and it was our of this world.

We stopped here on our way back from the beach in Guanica after reading reviews of restaurants on TripAdvisor for places to eat on our way back to San Juan. We had an excellent meal. The four of us ordered steak, pasta mariscos and dorado. Such wonderful flavors and large portions of yumminess! The staff were friendly and attentive and professional. A truly excellent experience. The Pina Colada was also delicious.
