Best two dishes (in my humble opinion) are the gallinita and el churrasco. Very tasty and well prepared. We always get attentive service.

It was a private small activity and the menu was limited, but everything was very good! The dinner and the environment were very good! The service and valet parking service were very good and fast. The restaurant is very clean and beautiful.

I have been coming to this restaurant for more than 30 years. The food only has gotten better over time. Do you want to eat the best smoked hen, smoked pork chops or smoked chicken? Look no further.

We are visiting from Colorado and wanted to taste some authentic Caribbean food. We were pleased with our plantain chips warm and crispy. My smoked chicken was superb and Renee's baked Cornish hen was delicious. Pleasant relaxed service.

Great variety of food types, and specially Cuban, Puerto Rican and International food. Try the exclusive "smoked chicken".

Easy to find restaurant with attentive and friendly service. Enjoyed steak Marcelo which was so good and fresh tasting. Flan for dessert was boring, I'd suggest another dessert. Seating was nice and comfortable. Classy decor. Open on Mondays.
