To start had sancocho which was delicious. For main course had cod fish with capers and cod serenata. Serenata serving was big. Good ambiance and very well kept facilities. Menu includes options for all. Skirt steak, chicken, rabbit, seafood, mofongo, etc.

Great spot. There were six of us (three couples) and all of us enjoyed our meal. We especially loved the risotto balls for the appetizers. There was very nice live jazz going on during our meal which was lovely. Overall, great spot and great food.
