The food we had was great and the prices are very reasonable. The staff is very pleasant, the food was brought to the table pretty fast. The portions were pretty generous, not much room left for dessert. I would definitely go back to this place.

The food and service was outstanding. This restaurant features Cuban Food and they execute the preparation very well. We had a pork steak and chicken steak ( Breast ) they were tender and juicy. The sides of rice and beans and plantains were delicious.

The ox tail was excellent. The beans was perfect also. And the homemade lemonade. You have to taste it. Very nice place. :-)

Had lunch with a Spanish friend who lives in PR & he gave it a thumbs up I would have to agree. Service can be a tad slow
