This place is absolutely fantastic....it's a bit out of the way (you have to go through a souvenir shop to get to it) but it's well worth the search! The staff was super friendly, the atmosphere is good and the food. LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THIS FOOD. It's so flavorful and well prepared...you can't possibly leave hungry either. We had the Churrasco and the Pernil and both were delicious. Would give this place 6 stars if we could!

Found this place by accident while walking around in Old San Juan. It is located in the back of a clothing store (kinda out of the way). My wife and I had a couple of Sangria's (very good) and a couple next to us order some local food and it looked delicious and they agreed it was. The proprietor was very friendly and greeting
