I loved the food so much as Desecheo that I had them cater my wedding and it was a hit with all of my family. Their mofongo is some of the best in Puerto Rico and everyone love the rice and beans, yes, they are worth mentioning, seasons are superb!

Very popular dining spot with no real frills. Full bar with a varied menu. Outside seating is *literally* in the parking lot.

Delicious Typical Puertorican Food with Friendly Service. They were able to accommodate our Party of 9 despite being rather busy. We had: Chicaron de Pollo, Fish Bites, Red Snapper, Churrasco, Mofongo, Tostones, in addition to the Parcha Sangria (delicious) and Coconut Lemonade (a bit tart but a must try).

We came in a group and were attracted by the relatively good reviews and because we were close. As soon as we walk in the first thing they say is "we don't have space for you and it's a 40 minute wait" I mean really?!! No good evening , no welcome... just WE CANT SERVE YOU. So never again...

We dropped in for dinner and they told us it would be an hour and twenty minute wait. So as we were walking out a guy at a table stopped us and said they were told the same thing and were seated in fifteen minutes. So we figured we'd give it a try and said that we would wait. We... More

Our guest Ordered a side of mofongo with his dinner. It was his first experience having it, so he didn't know what to expect. The texture was like a cement block. He couldn't eat it. The waiter changed it out for rice and beans which was delicious. The Dorado fish was chewy as well. Overall, Desecheo didn't impress our visitors... More

We all really enjoyed our meal here, and our waiter David was great. He was attentive and funny, and patient as non-Spanish-speaking members of our group attempted to use their rudimentary language skills.

Great lunch after a long (delayed) flight from NYC. David was our server and was great and welcoming. Food was fresh and delisous. A fabulous first meal for our PR vacation.
