This is a cute small restaurant in an area of bars and restaurants. Most of the area establishments seem to have a local clientele. They do not appear in the guidebooks, this one does.
The fish, displayed on ice, looked very fresh. We opted for the paella and found it ordinary (I was taught to make this dish by a man who was from Puerto Rico and mine isn't ordinary). Our cod cake appetizer was good and enough for two. My Pina Colada was tasty, but icy.
Service was attentive and pleasant.

Everything was out of this world! Frescura (freshness) y sabor (and flavor), puedes escoger tu pescado fresco y la salsa (you could choose your fresh fish and the sauce) we had fried fish with garlic and it was amazing (pedimos pescado frito con ajo y fue espectacular), los calamares fritos (fried calamari), y el arroz con calamares (black rice with squid) estuvieron deliciosos (tasted great). No veo la hora de regresar!! Can wait to go back!!

If you visit San Juan do not miss this place. Come on Friday 7 pm, enjoy one of the best food in Puerto Rico, then walk into the Placita have some drinks and dance salsa until you drop dead. Do no drive back, since you gonna be drunk!

The food is superb. Starters like chistorra, piquillos or boqueron are fantastic. The paella is delicious!
