We have been in this place numerous times and the food is always consistent and good. My only complaint is that sometimes they take long to serve you, but other times it's ok. The menu is varied and offers plenty of options but fish dishes are always a good option.

Best quality food in town, rice and beans super! Chiken Cordon blue, filet mignion in muchroom sauce. The dessert "Merengue"" amazing but 2 things: is expensive and the inside salon is too loud. But you want eat amazing in Ponce you have to visit!

Cozy lunch and dinning with excellent international food selections. Very attentive service and very reasonable prices. Been in this restaurant several times and cannot point out any inappropriate comments. I have had cawfish (chapin) filetes more than one time, not usually availanle at most seafood restaurants, and it is deliciously prepared. Love this place; an always comeback.

This restaurant is always good. A staple in Ponce, it has been recognized for their food and their service. If you are a local you are sure to always meet someone you know. The dining area is surrounded by artwork from local artist. Famous dishes include Breaded Chapin (fish), the soup of the day which is always amazing, beef filet... More
