The seafood rice is the highlight. But the rest are very average. The food proportion is big so make sure you don’t overorder. The shrimp cocktail is very very basic, do not recommend

This is where the Pina Colada originated back in 1963. First time visit to this place. Service was slow due to short staff but still gave it a five star for food and drinks! Pina coladas are great served in a tall glass!!!!

Enjoyed dining here with my family-menu offered many choices-and we enjoyed our experience very much. Our waiter was pretty quiet, and did not really interact but the food was enough reason to come back.

First time in Puerto Rico I was and this was the first Reatarunt I visited. By Seeing a different menu I was little surprised but later waiter explained everything nicely. Ordered local Mofongo and tasted excellent. Restaurant is also famous for its Pina Colada, I haven’t tried.
