This is our new favorite Mexican place. The ceviche is amazing. And the grilled fish tacos are to die for. The mini desserts are super cute and perfect shot size for those who control sweets.

We want to thank you for writing such a lovely review!! Our ceviche is freshly prepared with Mahi-mahi blended with freshly squeezed lemon and other ingredients we will not share on this forum, jajajajajajaja. But the most important thing is that you enjoyed your experience with us. 95% of our menu is gluten free and during our Sunday Mexican Brunch we also have some gluten-casein free pancakes as well.

We would love to see you again.

Definitely qualifies as AMAZING & our new favorite Mexican Restaurant in Puerto Rico--the margarita samplers & the other samplers are great group treats. Mariela Rivera our waitress was a lot of fun walked us through all the delicious options and treated us with the best hospitality &
Lyann Ortiz chef is not only really creative & incredibly talented but very approachable and super nice. Definitively makes our come back soon list! ***PLUS OFF-STREET PARKING**

We walked a mile from our hotel to eat at Tomate. It was worth it. The food was very good and the waitresses were very friendly and helpful. I had the fish tacos and the food was very fresh.

Read the reviews and decided to give this place a try. Went in on a Wednesday and it was hopping. I sat at the bar and they immediately brought me complimentary chips (Why are all the chips in Puerto Rico not crunchy?, just and aside) and two salsas. Ordered a beer and was trying to decide what sounded good on the menu. Settled on the Chicken and Chorizo tacos. This was served on corn tortillas with grilled onions tomato and queso on top. WOW. These were some of the best tacos I have ever had. The chorizo chicken combination was awesome. I can't wait to go back and try something else. The best part of the whole meal was tacos and 2 beers were $21 bucks!
