Delicious tuna montaditos and amazing fried fish steamed buns. Friendly service with the most amazing peach flan. Relaxed vibe and nice drinks.

Place:

It was located on Loiza Street and parking was pretty difficult. It may be a good idea to park off of one of the streets. We visited on a Sunday evening and the place was rather empty. They have around 10 tables and a few bar stools. There were 2 tables with people eating there when we visited. 


Food:

We did not try any of the alcoholic drinks, but tried 3 plates. 

1. buns - they were very good but a lot of bread. 

2. tuna rice bowl - typical poke poke style from Hawaii, but the taste was very average. It comes with rice, avocado and tuna. 

3. codfish taco - it comes in 3 and it was ok. 


I liked the buns the most out of all of them. 


Service:

It was a small place so they only had one waiter. We did not have a single problem. 


Overall, a good place to get a bite, but not sure if I would go back again. I would rather go to Cuerva del Mar very close by for the fish tacos.

Small, funky restaurant featuring a variety of nice vegetarian dishes to which you can add meat, poultry or shrimp for a small additional fee. Consistently good food at good prices

Seriously, avoid. We went here because of good average recommendation on tripadvisor. When we first went into the place it gave me an uneasy feeling, there were just two other visitors, it was too cold, sharp lightning and the techno music stressed me out. We had a kimchi burrito and a bamboo kebab with mahi mahi. Well, what can I say - if you don't know how to cook proper fusion food, don't do it. The dishes were underseasoned, overcooked and weirdly arranged. Felt like a total waste of money, would not recommend. :(
