Months ago I decided to get take out food from this place. I didn't realize that the staff didn't like doing takeouts as they assume that they won't be tipped. I was escorted to the very back bar with no one else away from the...More

This restaurant is a must when in San Juan! It’s quaint “jibaro” style decor and hostess clad in “jibaro” attire is quite awesome. Moreover, the food is amazing and if your set to try the Puerto Rican staple, mofongo, I suggest you try the tri-mofongo...More
