Some friends, who had visited the place several times, had told us about its exceptional food and great service. Today we went there for the first time, and had an absolutely wonderful experience! The seafood was absolutely fresh, the ceviches were delicately seasoned yet extremely flavorful (the fish had a very subtle taste of the sea, as any great ceviche should taste); the fresh tuna tartar, marinated in soy sauce, orange juice and perhaps a bit of balsamic, was to die for, and its plating absolutely beautiful (see the photo); and their mojitos (which were on special today at $4), were full of fresh yerbabuena leaves and lemon (not a hint of them blended in a mortar, as usually happens) and not too sweet (as is generally the case, in which lots of plain sugar syrop is added)... the absolutely best everyone in our party of six had ever had! The place is moderately priced (actually, inexpensive, considering the great quality of the food) but even better than that, they have awesome lunch specials for under $10. Very highly recommended!!!! One of the the most wonderful places in the vibrant Calle Loíza neighborhood, in which some of the nicest and most innovative restaurants in town are now located.

We were recommended to this place by our hotel bartender. It was a short walk. We were warmly greeted by the owner and seated. Modern clean decor. The chef came to our table and described the menu. She ended up creating two custom meals for us. The food and service were fabulous. We highly recommend.

First visit, and it was a very pleasant surprise, loved everything, great ambiance, all the dishes were amazingly creative and thoughtful with the flavor, texture and presentation. There is a dish for every taste... "patitas de cerdo" (pig legs) from local cuisine was amazingly tasty and tender, the ceviche by far the most delicious with a hint of wine, the tuna tartare exquisite and outstanding with perfect combination of smoked flavor with avocado. The chicken and salpicón empanadas had so much taste. And for dessert a delicious tres leches cake. Darwin was outstanding and made the experience perfect!! Definitely going back very soon!!!
