Stopped by for lunch. The server offered us a three meat plate with Churrasco, gallina and ribs and let me say it was delicious. Also ordered plastelillos made with beef and mashed banana. Blew our minds. Never had before but now Love Puerto Rican food.

Would normally never stop in a place like this but I read past reviews. Seating outside is a blast and the ribs were the best I ever had (I am not a rib expert) Food and drinks are real good.

Beautiful spot, great food, super service. Higher end, Best food we had on our trip, and our server was terrific, friendly and helpful, plus the rum shot at the end didn't hurt! Gorgeous location and convenient to the rain forest
