this is one of the most visited place and started as a chinchorro and now has become a restaurant , but still without forgetting their roots.

This place has great food and very cold beer. This is one of those places you think wow I am really going to eat here but man what a treat it is.

Food is always terrific, but if your waitress is Olga change tables. Very bad service. This was in the one in Guaynabo. Old San Juan the service is great.

A group of five arrived for dinner and chaos ensued. Mixed up orders long wait times and some of the food that was served did not match what was ordered. The food was average at best and the check did not match our orders either....More

Good atmosphere but a bit noisy, always full. Place for meat or conch empanadillas and the best fish tacos and of course an ice-cold Medalla beer!

This place has been around for over 10 years and is a great place to meet friends, share some appetizers, drinks and stories! The food is solid with amazing flavors, quality and presentation. Parking can be an issue, however Über is an option!
