Stopped here while walking around old San Juan. Popped in for a quick bight. Saw other diners with something looking delicious, found out it was called Mofongo. We went back the next day and had it. I still think about it!

vernacular appeal, right in the heart of downtown, try the Mufungo, typically Rican, the maitre de was great at explaining the dishes. Must try when visiting San Cristobal. Average priced. Good chef.

I visited here a few years ago and it was on the top of my list to revisit. Loved the mofongo with yuca and the flan was amazing. Cute and quaint and a tiny bit cramped, but definitely worth the wait if there's one.

Food portions were nice, the cornbread sticks tasted great. But my Red snapper was dry and tasteless, and the food was quite pricey. Not what I expected for what I paid for.
