Went on a Friday night to have dinner with my family of 5. Cozy ambient and all of the servers are friendly and polite. Real Mexican owners. For appetizers had the México nachos and the tialpeña soup. For main had the two tacos plate, rodaballo fish, burrito embarazado, fajitas de res and the enchiladas. Everything was delicious and perfectly cook.... More

Mexican living in Puerto Rico x10 years here. We tried the beef chipotle and enchilada, very reminiscent of the northen food of mexico. They have several specialties of different regions that I still have to try, salsa is authentic mexican. Overall, mexican approved!!

What a great dinner. Great ambiance and great service. Great Margaritas and classic Mexican menu. Tried Langosta Veracruzana and it is out of this world. Toño, the owner and Master Chef is a great host. Don't miss it Big 10...

We have been coming here for 17 years and we have never been disappointed. This is by far the best Mexican restaurant in San Juan. They use the best and most fresh ingredients and they make very good original dishes. The chicken Zihuatanejo is my favorite dish, of course with a side of the home made Mole. They have the... More

Food was extremely overpriced for what they serve. They also bring us to the table without asking a red salsa with chips. At the end they charged for that salsa and for extra chips 😑. And at top of all the waiter service was not great at all, were we decided that we will give a small amount of tip.... More

This is a great small jewel. A house converted into a restaurant, the cuisine is pure Mexican. Try the spicy Tlalpeno soup and the Sincronizada is a must. A dish of meat covered with a tortilla and lots of cheese, side of Mexican rice and beans covered with cheese. Enjoy the frozen lemonade, a liquor less drink in a Margarita... More

MUCH BETTER than Auroritas', Margaritas', Fridas, and La Dona. Don Antonio, the owner, is always making sure the service is impeccable. The staff couldn't be better. The décor is very Mexican but not overpowering. The margaritas are very well made, I prefer the "on the rocks with salt" one.

Went for the first time last Friday. Margaritas were warm, my pork flauta had a piece of bone and the waiter did not have any experience. Owner was busy greeting other customers that apparently are regulars (dont know why!) instead of trying to attend to our problems. Food was cold. Awful, will not go back.
