It's a very unique place located in the country side of Aguada, Puerto Rico. Every single dish includes their signature: platanos(plantains). They make fried platanos, mashed platanos, boiled platanos, platano soup, the platanos are also used as the "bread" in the sandwich filled with deliciously prepared meat & vegetables. Perfect place for a Sunday brunch or dinner. Prices are extremely... More

Good food at great price. Good overall experience. Beautiful view. I would recommend you visit during the day to enjoy the view and the roads can be a little scary if you are not used to country roads in Puerto Rico.

We had some good food here. The drive can be scary for people that are not familiar with Puerto Rico country roads where the side of the road is a straight plunge downhill. Go during the day to avoid the darkness on the roads.

Yesterday I eat a great pernil taco with fries with a cold nice water bottle. I can say that the place was neat, workers ready to serve, parking was waiting for us, meaning no problem to park near the restaurant. It is family oriented and the price is right. When ever you want to have a pleasant and nice time... More

Very famous place to taste a variety of dishes made by "platanos" from pizza to sandwiches. Want something different go there.

Two words, mofongo island. Mofongo stuffed with any meat or seafood, surrounded by plantain soup. Awesome! Everything else is spectacular. Great views of the Aguada mountains and great food. Must try!

Super excited to visit this place because my husband raved about how good it is. Sadly when we went there it was NOT good at all. For a place who specializes in plátanos it lacks just that. The platano soup is very salty, and has one note flavor, mushy banana. The fried chicken, fridge pork was dry dry dry, hard... More
