“Great surroundings.”
Reviewed 28 March 2013

The place is beautiful with spanish influence. The food was mostly good but my wife got sick with the duck breast. Good place for large groups.

“Tradition”
Reviewed 24 August 2012

This restaurant specialty is Spanish food and they are very consistent. It is not for everyone, if you are on a tight budget better go to another one. There are some things you should know
beforehand. Althought some people speak English they are not very fluent, so you better go there
with a local or expect to ask many questions before ordering. Service is excellent and very profesional, but remember following spanish standard. Quality of food and wines are excellent.
If you are a tourist it is better to use a taxi with arrangements to get you back to your hotel. It is at least about 1-3 miles from major tourist areas. They have valet parking, but parking area is usually limited. It is better to have reservations because this restaurant is frequently used for large groops, weddings, etc. It is an old mansion in the Santurce area restored, with excellent maintenance. The owner Manolo is there almost every time and is very friendly. Beautifull Ambiance and excellent food.
