Being that I'm Puerto Rican, I can say that this is authentic Puerto Rican food at it's best! Every meal I've ordered tastes just like my father makes it! It's a small restaurant off Holland & Plaza Trail. We like to come here when we...More

Food was good. We had your typical rice and beans, sweet plantains and shrimp. Waitress was nice and was helpful with the menu. Atmosphere was uplifting and music was good. Flan was amazing. Overall good experience.

The food portion so small. My child got burn with an empanada and they didn't even cared . No first aid kit. And I doubt they have a fire stinguisher. Make a wise decision before going a place with no safety regulations.
