Located in a house a block from La Placita -- and very easy to overlook if you don't have the address -- Jose Enrique had a moderately-sized menu that packed plenty of diversity and was almost entirely true Puerto Rican cuisine. This included a few...More

We make sure to include a dinner here on every trip. The crab appetizer and the snook poppers are our favorites. Although they are currently without a liquor license, bottles of wine can be procured easily and cheaply next door and served without a corkage...More

With a good and exquisite taste. This is one of the better restaurants in the island. The service is grate. The place is small but grate. Very Puertorrican cultural ambient

No reservations, just get here early. Fun place. Sat at the bar overlooking the kitchen. Chatted with the bartender all during the meal. Whole fried Grouper with a mango papaya red onion salsa. Damn good drinks too.

Moderate pricing. Dinner for two with appetizer and drink about 100. You could bring the bill down by not ordering appetizer.
