Appeared to be average. Fried chicken pieces were not what I had expected. Staff very friendly and nice. Was bit pricey we thought.

From the flank steak to the. Asopao, everything is so delicious. The drinks are great too, no shortage of rum, and very reasonably priced. A must try if you are staying at the resorts or hungry after exploring the island.

We came for our first time. We had a great experience. The artistic coffee drinks and Tamarindo Margaritas made by Carlos Manuel, the unique fried fish from Fonsi and the excellent service of Carlos David, deserves a 5 star rating.

It is a little expensive but you do get a lot of food. Ate red snapper and it was delicious. Rice beans and tostones served as sides or mofongo and all was yummy. Drinks were expensive

What looks like a small "dive" on the side of PR3 is actually a great little gem if you're looking for local cuisine! Prices were good, the Mofongo was wonderful and you can't beat 5 beers for $12! Relax, and enjoy but don't go if...More
