We ate at this under- the- radar joint after a full day tour of El Yunque Rainforest. There was a group of 12 ppl. They took great care and top notch service. Food was exquisite, exceptional friendly staff. Plenty of choices in the menu for many tastes. It seemed like everyone in or group ordered something unique and loved their... More

Boricuba moved, but the food is just as good and Migdalia the same pleasant owner. Anything on the menu is tasty and served graciously..Even better if you can go when there is music and you see the locals dance.

A family 16 of us, aged 7 months to 80 years of age ate a great meal here. The Chef is Cuban, the rest of the family -- the staff -- is Puerto Rican, the atmosphere is generous and friendly. "Try this", "put this on that", "the boys should eat more of this". All the food was beyond good. And... More

We were a group of 10, including two toddlers and one vegetarian, staying nearby in Luquillo for a week. We stopped in for take-out twice, and it was fantastic both times. The staff, especially the lovely older woman who seems to be in charge, were all amazingly friendly and helpful, and we could not have been happier. The mofongo was... More

The food was not amazing but it was really good. The service was really nice and the drinks (alcohol drinks) was refreshing and on point.

We stopped for dinner with a BeSpoke tour group, and we greatly enjoyed our meal. The tour operator called in everyone's dinner order ($12 flat rate for main dish, tostones, sweet plantain, rice/beans, salad, soft drinks) so we didn't have to wait long. He also called in the number of mojitos, as they are each made by hand. My grouper... More

We went to this restaurant after a El Yunque national rainforest of Puerto Rico tour. Our tour guide, Jerry, said that this is a mom & pop restaurant and if his mom cooks it is like that. He is telling the truth. The food was beyond amazing. The shrimp was delicious, and so was the rice which was great especially... More

"Yummy!!!" That's pretty much all that needs to be said. Ambience is humble yet very clean. The skirt steak and grouper were both wonderfully prepared and succulent. The rice was far from plain, especially when matched with the red beans. The owners are super nice and inviting. If you're coming to Fajardo, come with an appetite!!
