This place was recommended to us by several locals for authentic Puerto Rican food. It was good...not great though. They give you lots of food! The place isn't very big but we enjoyed sitting outside in their little outdoor area.

This is a great place to have lunch. Try the bistec ensebollado - was one of the best I've had! Excellent find - and minutes from the beaches. It is well worth a trip.

This is a lunch place with limited hours (Mon-Fri, 10am-2pm), but definitely worth it for flavor and budget. They have a set menu of rotating daily dishes. We found that the portions were generous enough that two of us shared the special - which includes arroz, beans (habichuelas), and a salad or platanos maduros (amarillos) along with the meat and...

Not many places where you can get this quality of food for $10 per person. The roast chicken was good. The bacalao was the best dish.

A lovely clean air conditioned cafe however our chicken was dry and rice and beans were cold. Service was excellent and friendly and portions were generous but I have had better local food at other places.
