Awful place, Poor Service, bad food and terrible atmosphere.
Went there last night; the place doesn't have proper ventilation, so all the smoke and smell from the kitchen gets into the dining area and lingers there making it a very smelly event.
The service is horrible, the waiter messed up my wife’s order, she didn’t get the correct dish and we had to pay for wrong dish the waiter gave her.
The food and drinks are pricey and not great at all; we had to wait more than an hour to get our food, and another 45 minutes for our check, for a combine two hours repulsive restaurant experience.

I have visited a seperate restaurant owned by these same folks in Durham called La Regia Latina. I knew going in that there would be good food. I am happy to see that they have added alot more dominican food than their other place. I'm definetely happy that they have Natural drinks Mango,Papaya, and Morir Sonando are my favorites. The portions are huge for the $$ spent. I would say this is money well spent.

Nothing fancy about this place, but good food.

If somehow you had transported there while sleeping, I think you'd wake-up thinking you were in Puerto Rico (judging by the food and the colorful customers).

The service was terrible the first night we were there, so be prepared to hound the wait-staff.

Still, portions are generous and tasty.

The margaritas are way too sweet and syrupy.
