I got this recommendation from a local fishing guide. He said it has good food and local flavor. The prices were reasonable as well. Nice experience

I read really great reviews about this place-so I sought it out-honestly-I was a little disappointed..... The service was good. The food was mediocre at best. We went for lunch. Drinks just okay.. I definitely would not make a special trip to go back there.

Awesome food and a great staff made for a great romantic dinner. Seafood dishes were very good and so were the portions. Good value for the money.

Basic Cuban food in a loud and fun place. The food comes out fast, so it is a good place for lunch but you would never consider it for a date dinner. Good for family outings.

Looks outdated, noisy, crowded, suited for a nostalgic older crowd ; menu not very original , although I only went there to sample 'sessos ' breaded pork brains.

We got a couple of people saying that it had great food and was a recommendation. The chicken mofongo I had was pretty good but my friend's food didn't seem too enjoyable. Service was slow and it just wasn't the best choice for our last night in San Juan. Would probably skip this one

Old fashion place, near the airport, with local food options, specialty: mofongo (with shrimps, pork or beef). Garlic bread, garlic yuca and options of wine, beer and non alcoholic drinks. They accept credit cards. The service is pretty good, and as we were in a rush it all went nice. Good option. Big portions.

We both ordered the Mofongo with Churrasco (skirt steak) with creole sauce for our lunch. It was a very large portion. I ate the whole thing, but wife was full halfway through. The churrasco was very well seasoned and the steak was tender. The Mofongo itself was very tasty. We had the tres leches cake for dessert and it was... More

Three of us had these three dishes plus an app and two beverages for $50 b4 tax. The food was great; we were all full and took home two boxes
