The $3 martinis were amazing!! I loved the berry ones and even took some to go! The shrimp skewers, the fried coconut shrimp, the mahi mahi and more were delicious!!!!!! I was in heaven and it was totally worth the money!

I was expecting skirt steak to be tough as it usually is what that was not the case it was very tender. It was a very good meal all go there seem... More

We went here on our first day in Puerto Rico and it was very nice. I highly recommend the Plenera. The view was also very nice by the beach. This kiosk is a hidden gem

Many people might want to by pass this, thinking that it is a tacky strip of cruddy businesses but there are great restaurants here, and Congas is the best! The restaurant has a bar with a few tables towards the front and then a number of tables in... More

We enjoyed our dinner so much, we went back for a second night. It did not disappoint - was every bit as good, if not better than the first night.

After a day at the beach, some friends and I went there. The food was tasty and the prices were reasonable. Good fish and arepas. The service is friendly but a little slow, specially because the restaurant was not full. Very clean place, food is prepare at the moment, nice atmosphere. Will go back again!

Happened to stop here after going to another restaurant that was full and decided to try this place. The service was okay, a bit slow. The food was delicious. Maybe this is why it took a long time to prepare even though the restaurant was relatively empty. Definitely the best mofongo I tried while in PR. Would love to go... More

Based upon a recommendation from a nearby artisan gallery owner we stopped at the kiosks yesterday for a late lunch on our way back to San Juan from el yunque. Congas was on a list of restaurants we were told had good local fare. The young man who waited on us was very kind and polite but had to be... More
