We went to Ruben's on one of our last nights on the island because of recommendations from people we met at Privilege Aluxes. We were not disappointed. Our waiter, who called himself The King, was really good, and he was attentive and fast without being intrusive.

We got a couple of mojitos before dinner, and ordered a salad, coconut shrimp, grilled lobster, rice, and mixed veggies. It was all very good, and arrived at the appropriate times.

The table next to us got the burritos, and they looked fantastic, and from the comments we overheard, they tasted better than they looked.

The next time we go to the island, we will definitely come back and eat here again!

We have been here almost 2 weeks and we just had the best burritos yet at Ruben’s! Try it out! You won’t be disappointed! Also, first place we have found that puts whole beans in addition to refried in their food.

Rueben’s always has the best Lobster Benedict on the island. Truly a great find, a small hole in the wall, off the main drag with indoor and outdoor seating but enjoy there benedicts or their super burrito. Rueben is sadly Missed but his spirit lives on in his creations.

Tucked away from the noise, we love this restaurant for lunch! We walk right down the driveway of Playa La Media Luna and grab a taco bowl or burrito! Massive portions and amazing prices!

The crunchy tacos were amazing as well as the sample plate. Plus they are so friendly and welcoming. I’ll be back for sure.
