It started with a waiter who seemed to be avoiding taking an order for our dinner. When he finally came to our table we quickly ordered without asking any questions about the menu which we were unfamiliar with as he seemed inpatient. The dinner came and it was nothing more than a large plate of rice with very few shrimp,... More

There were 4 of us and the recommendation on one. She was disappointed and kept questioning the waiter. It was probably an off night. The food was good but not special.

The food was delicious. The waiter explained anything we did not understand. The waiter was also patient with our "new York" attitudes and jokes. Looks like many locals eat there.

This place is amazing. The skirt state is 10 times better than at blt steak across the street at the ritz, and a fraction of the price. The fried chicken was also to die for. On our trip of 4 days we went their twice for dinner and wanted to go back a third.

The waiter had recommended my girlfriend and I to try the Mofongo. I decided to order the Chicken Mofongo and it was delicious! I recommend you stop by if you're looking for a affordable bite to eat with a Puertorrican twist. The Ham croquettes were great with the garlic sauce it.

Slamming food, drinks, and service all around. Beautiful atmosphere. Close to hotels. A good time! The food is very good, although it will take some time to come out. Well worth the wait! Flavorful food with sweet prices!
