“Great Mexican food in San Juan.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

We stumbled on this restaurant while staying at the Intercontinental Hotel in Isla Verde, Puerto Rico. It was just 2 blocks away. The restaurant is very colorful and cheerfully decorated. The staff was friendly. The food was delicious if you like Mexican food. We enjoyed the food so much that went there two more times. I highly recommend this restaurant if you like very reasonably priced Mexican food

“Meh. There are better places. ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

My sister and I ordered a veggie burger and veggie fajitas and split half and half. Both were incredibly bland. We asked for the fajitas to come without mushrooms. What we received was a plate covered with mushrooms, so we sent it back. The "fajitas" that they brought after was basically just a plate of onions with probably three strips of bell pepper. Also it was sprinkled with bland veggie burger crumbles. We had to put a ton of salt on all the food in order for it to taste like something. This is also the first Mexican restaurant I've been to that doesn't bring out nachos. Service is ok. There is nothing memorable here. My mother did like the chicken wings, though. (Chicken wings at a restaurant?). Save your money, go somewhere worthwhile.

“Great spot for lunch!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

We were at the end of our Royal Caribbean Cruise and had taken a shore excursion to visit old San Juan and one of the forts. There was enough time to stop here for lunch before the group was dropped off at the airport to fly home. The food was better than expected and service was super fast. Much better than eating a $10 hot dog at the airport.
