The food here was really good! Enjoyed savoring authentic food with excellent service. The building is also really unique, and elevates the cultural experience.

Wonderful experience and delicious food and drinks, we started with appetizers, and the must eat is the chuleta kan kan, after a long day of walking around Old San Juan it's a welcome oasis of food and drinks. Pina colada was awesome!

Does anyone know if I can purchase the stainless mugs online or call them and order. I wanted to purchase 2 while there but there was no one behind the counter to help me. I would love to have 2 of these mugs.

They most likely are open on Christmas day but best way to make sure is to call the restaurant and consider reservations as probably not many restaurants will be open.
