This place is incredible! We walked in on a Friday about 6pm and was seated promptly. We might have just got lucky. We ordered the sampler platter for an appetizer and everything was delicious. For my entree I got the red snapper and it was also amazing. The service was also top notch and very attentive. We had three people... More

When we passed by yesterday night I guess it's still too early and empty so we skipped it. We went in today. Pedro took care of us — he's awesome, energetic and engaging. Food's awesome and flavorful. Service is awesome too.

Stopped in at the recommendation of an acquaintance. The outside didn't look like much, but decor inside was tasteful and food was even tastier. We tried a couple different risottos which were all flavorful and creamy. The skirt steak with chimichurri sauce was excellent.

Came for dinner on Feb 25/17. A nice walk from The Wave Hotel, who's front desk staff highly recommend this restaurant. Food was excellent and the staff friendly and helpful. Well worth it if you are planning a trip to San Juan!

We had a bit of a wait but it was worth it. The Goat stew is a must...so tender. The service was outstanding.

Do not miss this if you're staying in Condado! We had one of the best meals of our trip here. Everything our waiter suggested was authentic and delicious. There was a ton of staff and they were eager to assist as serve. We will be back if we come back to the island!

We went for lunch with our daughter and ordered 4 appetizers to share and it was plenty. Shrimp empeñadillas, beef empeñadillas, black bean risotto and gnocchi. All very good! I think the black bean risotto was our fave! The service was efficient without being intrusive and they'll help you with the menu if you want. Restaurant has a full service... More

The last time I was in San Juan, we couldn't get a reservation so, I made a reservation before I even left NY to verify that we would be able to eat here and it was even better than I remembered (I last ate here 10 years ago)! The signature dish is just incredible and everyone in my party had... More
