This place is good. Attentive service and great food. This was my 4th visit and I will be back. You must try the Oxtails, baby pernil and ham croquettes. They even have a daily lunch buffet which is very reasonably priced.

No longer. The restaurant obtained a liquor license, renovated and put in a full bar. Drinks during happy hours are $5, I believe.
