Our hosts described this place as 'local food', so it rose quickly to the top of our list. Per our server's recommendation, we ordered the red snapper in creole sauce with a side of mofongo.

A 'cozy' restaurant with a good choice of food. I opted for the Red snapper in a Cajun sauce which was delicious. Parking is a bit limited but we found somewhere on the street outside. Highly recommended for a tasty meal and fab service.

We stopped here for dinner on our first night in town. Very good food! Don't be fooled by the outside - go in and try the lobster mofongo!

From the time we walked in until the time we left, you could tell the owner is so happy to serve you the best food he can. Everything was very good and service was outstanding. It is not the easiest to find and it is just a small location, but work the visit.

Fish dishes were overcooked. The welcome from the owner is very boastful and friendly. They claim to have fresh fish and a fisherman but this is not true. It was horrible. Most of our group of 7 left food on the plates and they did not ask if we liked it. It was the worst meal I have every had... More

Mother, father and son do it all here. We were impressed with the attention to detail and cleanliness of the restaurant. The lobster gumbo was incredible, perfectly seasoned in Puerto Rican style.
