Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I dont even know where to start, I absolutely love this place especially as a family gathering ! The food is so fresh plus it has a LOT of space. The staff are extremely friendly and super helpful with all the questions you may have....The space is so clean , we went to eat there 2 adults and two kids & my toddler enjoyed the food as well as my baby his favorite was the chicken easy to chew and eat. The drinks are nice and strong as well as unique ‼️. It’s such a great vibe, I love this place so much I wish we could take it to New York 😭. They also have a play area for the kids to enjoy once they are done eating.More

We met Ronald on the beach asking us to try this restaurant. Not only was he professional and attentive but seriously brought us to the very best food on the island! The food was fresh and cooked to perfection. The restaurant was beautiful and beautifully...maintained. I can’t wait to come back here. Even better than the food I get in the USA. If you are ever here please come here and get some of the best food on the island. The entire menu was great and it was so affordable.More

We decided to venture out for a meal because we grew pretty tired of the options at lifestyle. Happy that we did because this food was amazing. The staff are attentive and the owner was eager to welcome my wife and I. I highly recommend...the quick walk. If we found this earlier, we would’ve eaten here every day of our trip. Thank you Charros!More
