Located a couple of easy blocks from Marriott. Storefront with nice peoplewatching open air covered seating. First local meal. Stuffed Mofongo Camarones (Shrimp), Mofongo is local dish of smashed plantain. Very tasty, good portion .Smoked pork chop, just so-so. Friendly service. While rating average, I would still recommend for the various Mofongos and local foods and drinks.

The Cafe, at first, was exactly what I was looking for, open and a friendly staff inviting guest in. I was in the mood for Calamari and local food.... both were on the... More

I ordered take-out from this place, after a long day spent in El Yunque. I read good reviews online about the food, but I feel it was just mediocre for the $60 I spent on two Mofongo dishes, a very time side of beans and rice, and a mojito while I waited. There are much better places at a better... More

We were a group of six and ordered a variety of food along with the sangria. The service was terrific and I would highly recommend it. On the heavy side but good food.

I went to Puerto Rico with my sister for vacation. We ate here for our first and last meal in Condado, San Juan. We had breakfast when we arrived, we loved our pancakes, bacon, eggs etc. The coffee is amazing as well. We ate dinner before we left also and we were very very happy and satisfied. I love the...
