Exquisite, very charming, reminds me of real "jibarito" times when my grandfather used to cut some fresh plaintains while grandma was ready to cook them, this place is awesome, specially the bay front view and the weekend to dance the whole night.

We were the only table in the restaurant and it took an hour before the last entree made it to the table, after the preceding entrees arrived one by one, very slowly. Food was not worth that wait. Best part was the Mesitas de Mero, and the weather. Friendly management though.

We enjoyed the music and the drinks... Live music on weekends and a real nice crowd. Salseros love this spot because of the music and the the location is right at the waters edge. Enjoy!!

Quick and friendly service, good food We ordered lobster, red snaper, shrimps, and everything was delicious! Is a small casual atmosphere, not elegant. No air conditioner, open windows instead gives you that amazing beach view. It has a small bar. On weekends starting at 9:00pm they have live latin music. After 8:00 pm a second floor gives you a billiard... More

It took an hour to get our food and the place was empty. When we finally got the food the fried plantains were frozen, and the ripe fried plantains were half way cook. It look like they put it on the microwave. All the other places around the area are closed.
