Just beyond the throngs of cruise ship tourists and out of the midday heat this place was a lovely find. Very chilled, breezy and great fresh chilled coconuts. And WiFi, which hadn’t been that easy to access before.

Great location, good music. Drinks and food were fine. Service was slow, even with a place almost empty. The waiter forgot our drink order. When I re-ordered it, the other waiter rushed it.

The food is very tasty and reasonably priced. The scallops are to die for. They are located right around the bars and open until 12am.

Made a pit stop here during an Old San Juan family outing with the grandkids. Great location and friendly casual ambiance. We had mostly appetizers to share (carne frita, alcapurrias, and langostinos) and food was very good as was the service.
