I choose this restaurant while I was at a business trip to Puerto Rico. I strongly recommend the tasting menu they offer. It's a 6-course menu, very tasteful, well presented and the service is impeccable.

Chef thank you for a great experience. The flavors in the Puerto Rican tastings was unbelievable. We upgraded to the cheese souffle for desert and it was well worth it. From, NH, Arkansa, Florida and Mississippi we thank you.

The last visit we were lucky enough to meet Chef Wilo. This time we "snuck" in and settled down for the extraordinary food and impeccable service. Delicious. Not to be missed if fine dining is your goal.
