This is a nice restaurant that occasionally gets overrun by tourists coming off the 15-story cruise ships that dock in San Juan and transform the streets of Old San Juan. The food is traditional, the service attentive, and the atmosphere lively and loud. The prices are moderate and you can try plantain tamales!

Definitely stays busy. Can have up to 1 1/2 hr wait. Best visited when no cruises have ported otherwise expect to wait. Not big location but great food.

We came here on several recommendations but were disappointed when 3 of things we asked for off the menu -they didn't have. And our server Wanda was not helpful. First she wasn't friendly and seemed annoyed to be there, she never refilled our drinks, never asked if we'd like anything else, never asked how our food was or even asked our friends when they joined us if they would like to order something. And then she picked her nose in the dining room. Everyone in PR has been so kind and friendly, and this restaurant came so highly recommended we were really disappointed. Food was good but we won't return due to the service.

In the heart of old san juan, a short walk from el morro castle. They offer authentic Puertorrican food and drinks.
If you want authentic athmosphere and food, this is the place
