We ate dinner here one evening, sat on the patio area looking out to the water. The food was relatively good but somewhat expensive (although on par with other restaurants in Puerto Rico). The mofongo side was not as good as what we had had...More

Great food and great people. Hands down the best meal we have had in Puerto Rico and the best service. They even stayed open late to serve us since our day ran long driving from Rincon. I'm only sorry we didn't stop here sooner. Will...More
