I have to say that the menu doesn't have to many choices, but I asked for Mero al ajillo, and it taste wonderful. I wasn't expecting much form the place because of the reviews, but my husband used to come here and wanted me to try, even though I was skeptical it was worth it. Marian costumer services was great... More

This is just a place where you can go a eat cheap tasty fritters and other food. Excellent to prevent hangover. Use to be great but with the change in owners its quality is decreasing fast. Needs to return to what they are use to offer to the clients.

Close enough to the coast (Joyuda) that you can get seafood, but the better bet is the Puerto Rican food. I usually get chuletas (pork chops) and this comes with your choices of sides. Good for lunch or later...

Not bad but not impressed... Within 2 miles will find many much better places. Saw many customers and thought it had to be relly good. Not so.

Generally tasteless appetizers and entrees, very slow service and pretty grimy table with bug issues thrown in for good measure. I'm definitely not a whiner, but I would not recommend this place when there are other far better choices nearby. Absolutely the worst to stones I've ever had, the chicken and fish entrees just plain sucked, the fish bite and... More

This place is laid back and very relaxed atmosphere. Its completely open so no way to have AC but I was comfortable. The beers were cold and the food was very tasty, I had fried fish with white rice and beans and I must say it was very good!! I will come back again.

This is a place that seems to be a local favorite, but I can't really see why... The place looks disgustingly dirty, the bathrooms are a nightmare, the food is awful and the whole structure is situated on a dirty water pond filled with mosquitoes and other bugs. Not even the beers where cold. Never ever will I go back.

Food is fresh, no air conditioned but nest to a stream and not hot. Food is excellent and the prices are very reasonable. Service is good.
