I am from the States and my wife is originally from PR and we have found that this is a great breakfast place whenever we are in San Juan; we have even taken my brothers' family there when they joined us on a recent trip. My wife is an Eggs Benedict fan and I love their omelet with all of... More

Place is a casual atmosphere, dishes are good from main meals to dessert. Best paellas ever!!!!service was a bit on the low side, had to ask for the side of main dish after paella was served....waiter never asked! It gets to be a little loud at noon.

Got the pancakes with banana, pancakes with strawberries, and make your own omelette with bacon, cheese and peas. Everything was delicious, thick pancakes slightly crunchy on the edges and ginormous omelette with the best side potatoes ever. Ordered the coffee americano, which must mean black, but Franco brought us steamed milk and then it wad delicious coffee. Seems like a... More

My husband and I went here during our vacation. It was just a short walk from the Mariott hotel in Condado and definitely worth the trip. The waiters were professional and worked very well together. We ordered the paella for 2 and it was fantastic. There was different types of seafood in it-shrimp, scallops, octopus, clams and more.(I also saw... More

We stopped here for breakfast and ordered the banana pancakes and the eggs Florentine. The pancakes have this crunchy texture on the outside, but are fluffy on the inside, similar to a funnel cake so that was amazing. Great service!

We Ubered here from the Condado Plaza Hilton but walked back because it was closer than we thought. Ordered the grilled octopus to start-it was delicious and cooked to perfection. The wait for the Paella is about twenty-five minutes and well worth it. Lots of fresh and delicious seafood and more than enough for two people. Ordered the tembleque for... More

The service was excellent and the food was great. Not one bad dish! The plates even looked so good my friends had to take a... More

Had a very good meal in a cute atmosphere - nice service. Went for a mom/son breakfast (son is 22 years old). Franco was the perfect waiter! Pancakes and omelettes were delicious. Franco was very attentive yet not intrusive, helped us decide on menu choices, and was very polite. Definitely would go back. Both my son and I thoroughly enjoyed... More
