Overall, a good meal. They weren't stingy with the sangria, although the bar was slow. We had the grilled conch salad, which was tangy and tasty; the cerdo leneo, which my husband said was smokey and yummy. Our entree was the grilled whole red snapper -- fresh, moist, and flaky, and the sauce was light and good. Seemed a little pricey ($5 for a small side salad) but a pleasant evening.

Best Puerto Rican novel cuisine in San Juan. Gourmet- traditional food. Typical Puerto Rican setting. Great service, with friendly visits from the chef to your table. Excellent!!

Is an excellent option in Miramar for lunch and dinner. Ingredients always fresh, appetizers are exquisite. Homemade Sangria is outstanding and fresh fish A plus. Highly Recommended!

This place is a must for delicious, quality food that is prepared with care. Wonderful presentation as well. Chicken filled with sweet plantain wrapped in bacon, steak filet with onions, grilled chicken with sauce were all flavorful, tender, yummy! Desserts were a special treat... Chocolate cake with ice cream is heavenly, pistachio flan was perfect. Waiter service was attentive and took time to explain dishes. The live music added a nice touch to a cozy atmosphere. This was a Saturday, place got packed by 7:30 and there were many waiting when we left. It is not a big place, so if you have a big party go early. Menu explanation in english would be helpful but was not a big deal.
Interesting location, across the street from La Ciqala Suites if you're thinking about staying in PR.

This place looks quite unappealing on the outside and is off the beaten track, but the food presentation was about the most beautiful and appealing I've ever seen. Tasted great as well, and the service was excellent. Good drinks but the bar is not air conditioned. Small with a pleasant indoor atmosphere, but not elegant. The menu is in Spanish only.
