We went at lunch hour. We order steak (bistec) and fried chicken empanada with rice and beans. The steak was very dry, poor quality. The food was not good. The sangria was almost grape juice, not alcohol inside. We had to wait a lot for the bill and when they finally brought it, it was not ours. For the price... More

This place has one of the best pizza in town. And the chicharrones de pollo (fried chicken is excellent. It is kind of dark but in a good way. It is a different but nice atmosphere.

Greatest pizza on the island and rightly so since they claim it was the owner, and father of Puerto Rican (Hollywood & Broadway) actor Raúl Julia, who first introduced pizza to PR. A must visit spot!! Very low lighting so be warned folks who have light refraction issues.

This is a San Juan classic. We love the atmosphere of this Spanish Cave Decorated restaurant. The pizza and the fried chicken are great.

My wife had a great looking and tasting lobster. For the size it was not expensive. There was even some music from a Tuna group from the... More
