This place came highly recommended, and I can understand why! Their sushi is unique without straying too far from traditional Japanese sushi, and it was just all-around amazing! We received a special order for my birthday, 6 different types of rolls on a beautiful bridge serving plate! It was really a delightful treat, and I highly recommend it!

Enjoyed having a burger that came to the table atop a hot lava stone. Very unique and tasty as well.

My wife and I both ordered variations of their hamburger served on a hot lava rock. The presentation is awesome, and it looks very delicious. Unfortunately... More

One review proclaimed fresh ingredients and homemade breads which is why we stopped in for dinner. Well, the food turned out to be average American bar food that may or may have been homemade. Felt more like a bar to have snacks while you drank, not a restaurant.

We were told that this place had the best burgers on the island, so we tried it. The burger meat itself came out sizzling on top of a hot lava rock--it tasted great. Cozy atmosphere. Enjoyed it.

Tintorera is an awesome spot to chill out, grab a big ol beer and have a chat with friends. A pool table, dart board and table soccer table give it a fun bar ambiance. Daisy, the bar owner, speaks great English. On the food side, the hamburgers served on hot lava rock are truly something special, and they have really... More
