I loved the atmosphere and I felt like I was in The Caribbean the food was awesome. The owner is very nice and let me bring wine to The restaurant. The pork and chicken were great can't wait to go back.

This is a small place for Puerto Rican food. MY friend and I ordered different things and both agreed it was good. I would visit again if I don't find anything else close by. Only problem is Parking.

Having visited Puerto Rico may times, I was very happy to have this little place to satisfy my mofongo cravings. Problem is that lately the food is very greasy, leaving me with upset stomach every time I go. Please make better, I need a good...More
