Visited the restaurant several times last year. Excited to go back and were completely disappointed. Starting with the drinks ( mostly ice and soda, even with choosing the more expansive sangria). The menu is HEAVY on battered food, such as the impossibly greasy cod fritters....More

Great food. The food is a mix of Puerto Rican and Mexican food. The restaurant is owned by Puerto Ricans. It is very cute and quiet. There is outdoor seating. You have to check out the bathroom.
