  • The cheese balls and whatever sauce comes with it is very good.
  • Nothing special
  • This restaurant has more than 300 yelp reviewers and placed it 4star+ so I decided to come, stand in line and wait for 20 mins to get the food and disappointed!!
  • Every item is absolutely delicious but make certain to try the Camarones al ajillo or Pollo al ajillo with a side of the Dark Rice and Black Beans. Out of this world!!!
  • Keep in mind the dishes change daily - dishes recommended on Foursquare might not be on the menu! That said, the "Puerto Rican lasagna" is awesome (beef and plantain).
  • Very disappointed. Ate here tonight for dinner. Our service was ridiculously slow at 6:00pm. Two tables that came after us got their food before we got our beef patty appetizer. Not impressed by food
  • Really slow.
  • Prices are quite reasonable (cheap)!
  • Everything we ordered was excellent... Totally enjoyed the grilled pork chops with trifongo.. Washed all the good food down with sangria.... Excellent lunch... Definitely recommended
  • Delicious sangria... On the sweeter side though.
  • Amazing food. Chicken stew and beef patties were bomb.
  • Amazing red sangria
  • Easily the best food in Old San Juan.
  • The chicken creole dish with the tri-mofongo is OUT OF THIS, as is the pork in plantain gravy. As evidenced by our empty plates :-) def try the sangria, too!
  • Try the cubed steak and their homemade sangria.
  • Amazing food!! Oven roasted pork with red beans and white rice are delicious! Tostones are amazing with the garlic dipping sauce.
  • I eat everything and always finish my plate. Here, left hungry. Tough conch, bland plantain...
  • Very authentic. Order anything with pork.
  • Steak & sweet plantains are amazing. Also best yellow rice and beans!!
  • The bistec a la criolla and el bistec encebollado are to die for. They have that homemade quality that is rare to find. If the wait is long when you arrive, dont feel discouraged, it is SO worth it.
