The brush hits the canvas as the brine, baste marinade applied by the master artisan Choli graces the cuisine and beautiful food offered at his namesake eatery. On the corner of two popular streets in Esperanza, good vibes, music, energy twined with smiles illuminate the...More

I wanted to try authentic Puerto Rican food and this place was recommended by our taxi driver. It is just a short walk from the main strip of Esperanza. Everything is fresh and delicious! I recommend ordering seafood.

Had a great fish-stuffed mofungo, with a garlic/orange sauce. Also the roasted pork was delicious. Loved that it's clearly family-owned and the kids are helping serve the customers. Not a fancy place at all, but surprisingly cool/shady for sitting outside on such a hot day,...More

Awesome meal for a group of us. Got to try the pork (tender an juicy) whole fish (flaky, not overcooked) a mixed seafood dish, arepas and other side dishes. All were just wonderful. Can't wait to go back.
