Great Food and excellent friendly staff! The mero and lobster was great. Come in casual-comfortable clothing (beach-like).

The Passion Fruit Mojita was very refreshing. Definately will be back!

The food here is amazing. Starting with the picadillos (similar to empanadas) for appetizers and continuing to our main courses and sides, everything had amazing flavors. The "special sauce" that the chef owner has created is unlike anything we've ever had before and so tasty we wanted to take several bottles home with us! The Red Snapper was particularly good.

But as good as the food was, the service truly is above and beyond. It starts with the chef owner explaining everything on the menu and making sure you know that he'll adjust any of the cooking to suit your style. Throughout dinner we were attended to without being bothered and the food arrived quickly but without feeling rushed.

The restaurant is in a small area with other casual dining places that looks almost too casual. But don't be put off by that. This is the best meal you will have in Puerto Rico!

Some of the freshest seafood we ate on the island cooked to perfection! We had ceviche and the lobster dinner. They do an amazing mofongo! We washed that down with their homemade sangria and mojitos which were great! The owner Leonardo ensures that all of his guests feel special by providing fantastic service and going above and beyond the normal experience. This modest restaurant is in an area where the locals eat and helps provide a wonderful Puerto Rican charm that the resorts cannot match We had a great dining experience and I highly recommend this eatery!
