Cozy lunch and dinning with excellent international food selections. Very attentive service and very reasonable prices. Been in this restaurant several times and cannot point out any inappropriate comments. I have had cawfish (chapin) filetes more than one time, not usually availanle at most seafood restaurants, and it is deliciously prepared. Love this place; an always comeback.

This restaurant is always good. A staple in Ponce, it has been recognized for their food and their service. If you are a local you are sure to always meet someone you know. The dining area is surrounded by artwork from local artist. Famous dishes include Breaded Chapin (fish), the soup of the day which is always amazing, beef filet... More

Asked for recommendations to have lunch while in Ponce. The guy at the front desk of the hotel recommended very well this restaurant. We had Mahi mahi in guava sauce and a stuffed chicken breast. Both of them were delicious. Ambiance is very nice and great customer service. Definitely will be back while in Ponce.

I just visit this place. The milanesa is delicious, and two people easily can eat from one plate due to its size. The place has ample parking, the food was ok.
