The food here is outstanding. The staff is friendly. We had the mofongo with bistec encebollado, white rice and chicken en salsa criolla. It’s very busy and located in old San Juan. Worth the trip

We went here for local food experience and lucked onto the perfect waiter for us. The food was very good - but the paella was an excellent surprise. We enjoyed the decor and could hear each other talk despite our room being pretty full.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a nice gentleman(native of San Juan) at Atlanta airport. The ambience, service and food was excellent. Real authentic local cuisine at reasonable price.

Great mofongo. Good fish tacos. Neat decor. The wait staff wears fun, traditional uniforms. A bit loud.

They do not take reservations. If you plan on going during peak dining times, lunch or dinner, you most likely will have a wait. The outside waiting area has beautiful and unique tables made of wood as well as a wooden... More
