Visited the restaurant which is a short drive from where we were staying in Guanica. It is right in the marina in Lajas with a nice view. Great food and good value for your buck. the mofongo was really good and staff were very good.

This is the classy '90's style restaurant, on a yacht club, full housed of affluent folks of the area. Food is great! Diversity on offer, excellent. But the Floor Manager needs to be replaced. And the emphasis on only one waiter running the show is not good.

The service was very slow for a Sunday night, appears that they only had one waiter. Food came out cold, but I was afraid to return it because it took so long. Food was okay/good not fantastic. They came highly recommend but did not live up to the review. Nice location and view.

They were greeted by name, and given the choice of table where... More

We made reservations for Saturday night since this place is very popular because of its great food. The table was ready when we arrived. Everything was excellent. I had the filet of chapin in tamarind sauce, which is considered to be a rare fish, and it was perfectly cooked and delicious. The yuca (cassabe) mofongo was out of this world... More

Excelent service, great food, really good restaurant, nice view. Margaritas are so good also the house drink. We had fried fish, Turrumote (steak) special plate, fried cheesecake as desert and coffee. Aceptable prices. A place to go!
