The hotel we stayed in (Holiday Inn Express) referred us to this cafe. Local, fresh and flavorful. The staff were very friendly and accommodating to our family. They give you a huge meal.

Came here a couple of weeks ago for dinner. Seems as if a lot of locals come here. Good vibe atmosphere. We ordered two grilled chicken breasts in criolle sauce, rice and beans & fried sweet plantain. They thought we only ordered one, so we received the one order. It was nicely presented. We shared this while they prepared the... More

My husband and I ate here and thought the food was very average. We had breakfast with Bloody Mary's. The drink was just like tomato juice with vodka...nothing special. That was pretty much how the eggs were too.

We happened upon this place on our last day and each one of us (including the kids!) loved every bite of our lunch that was served to us. We ordered chicken, fried pork and a Cubano and everything was heavenly. Staff was friendly, service was excellent, prices reasonable. It was just what we were looking for in authentic PR cuisine....

My wife and I went here for dinner one night as Frommer's recommended it saying if you had a Puerto Rican grandmother this is what her food would taste like. The place is on the Avenue and is nothing fancy however sometimes we find we get our best meals at a place like that this was not the case. My... More

A very locals type of place, nothing fancy, with indoor and outdoor seating. The mofongo is very good, and the service is nice. Priced standard for the area.

Mofungo with pernil. Do it! AND pro-tip, turn the plantains over - there's another secret delicious mound of pork. The service was wonderful, the happy hour was terrific, but my god! The mofongo!!

Great service. Good Mojito's, Mofongo, pork. Small inside but didn't have a problem getting a table close to the street in the open air. Recommend for sure.

Thank shancdn
