The food is delicious and the flamenco show amazing! We had a special double birthday celebration and the staff was most accommodating and attentive to every detail. Highly recommend!

This restaurant was our last dinner of fine dining in Old San Juan Puerto Rico! We definitely saved the best for last!!! The ambiance was intimate. Exceptional service and food...The drink of the night was the Pina Colada and entree of the night was the Chicken Monfogo(hopefully spelled right ) The prices are just right...they make us want to fly to Old San Juan just for dinner! The bonus of the night was the waiter looked like a celebrity...Drake lol

Great Pina Coladas's but be careful ordering anything else. Really cool atmosphere! The building is half indoor/outdoor.
