We have been coming here for 17 years and we have never been disappointed. This is by far the best Mexican restaurant in San Juan. They use the best and most fresh ingredients and they make very good original dishes. The chicken Zihuatanejo is my favorite dish, of course with a side of the home made Mole. They have the... More

Food was extremely overpriced for what they serve. They also bring us to the table without asking a red salsa with chips. At the end they charged for that salsa and for extra chips 😑. And at top of all the waiter service was not great at all, were we decided that we will give a small amount of tip.... More

This is a great small jewel. A house converted into a restaurant, the cuisine is pure Mexican. Try the spicy Tlalpeno soup and the Sincronizada is a must. A dish of meat covered with a tortilla and lots of cheese, side of Mexican rice and beans covered with cheese. Enjoy the frozen lemonade, a liquor less drink in a Margarita... More

MUCH BETTER than Auroritas', Margaritas', Fridas, and La Dona. Don Antonio, the owner, is always making sure the service is impeccable. The staff couldn't be better. The décor is very Mexican but not overpowering. The margaritas are very well made, I prefer the "on the rocks with salt" one.

Went for the first time last Friday. Margaritas were warm, my pork flauta had a piece of bone and the waiter did not have any experience. Owner was busy greeting other customers that apparently are regulars (dont know why!) instead of trying to attend to our problems. Food was cold. Awful, will not go back.

It wasn't our first time and certainly will not be our last. Antonio and Reina will greet and serve you like you have been their friends forever. The food is great, authentic Mexican. And don't be fooled by their competition on the corner across the street. If you would like to enjoy a nice meal, excellent margaritas and scrumptious desserts... More

Authentic mexican food. I have visited this place for 15 years. Quality of food is superb and consistent through the years. I recommend the burrito feliz. Also the chimichanga del mar is excellent. Cozy atmosphere.

This small Mexican family run Mexican restaurant delivers consistently. From a personal greeting at the door from Antonio, the owner, to great service and great food at reasonable prices. A family friendly place. Not your mediocre Mexican, the dishes here are a cut above. Valet parking, nice Margaritas, nice nachos, super picque and great main courses. Enjoy...
