This is the perfect spot to have dinner and contemplate the sunset on the west coast of Puerto Rico. It was easy to get to the locale after driving from town. We got there around 6:00pm and the place was already packed. My recommendation is to get there early, especially on weekends, if you don't want to wait to get a table. There was parking available at no charge. Our waiter was friendly and prompt even though it was a very busy evening. There was a mix of patrons, locals and foreigners. Our waiter spoke English and Spanish. No need to worry if only speak one language! Food was very tasteful with very nice presentation. There was a wide variety of plates ranging from Caribbean, Asian and American styles with a little twist and Puerto Rican flavor. We chose to sit on the outdoor area where you get to see nice view of the ocean and sunset. By the time we finished our food it was dark. We looked up to the sky and counted the stars above, something we miss by living in the big city. Very romantic for a date.

I really like Thai food and the time we came there most of the entrées where not available so I had to order what was available. I like spicey and hot food but one of my daughter ask for the spice to be mild and they couldn't do it. So that's was my experience; not coming back.

This is one of the greatest spots in Rincon. If you are looking for a great place to hangout this is the place to be. Amazing bar with great ambiance and the food, my God the food is amazing you need to really try this one after a great day at the beach.

Well, we went all the way to the restaurant, which is a semi difficult trip and it was closed. From looking at their facebook page I can only conclude they are still remodeling. In order to avoid potential clients from making the journey all the way to the restaurant at night to discover that it is closed.

Probably the best Thai food I've ever had... The service was wonderful (mostly American) It's a bit tricky to get to...better signs are needed... but it was an adventure we won't forget!! Incredible views from the outside porch. Just don't look down!!!!
