A great buffet and often a show. I came for a school dance recital and I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the buffet. They have a regular menu as well and a reputation amongst locals as a great place to drink and dine.

The food here is good and the price is very accessible. If you want to try dominican cuisine here this is the place. They have a buffet everyday.
