    I found it to expensive for typical food. I would rather take a sight trip to Guavate and it the same for less $

    Best food I had in PR! The place looks like a huge tourist trap, the decor is the worst. We came in anyway based on the photos of the food posted in 4sq. The food is actually amazing! Pork is a must.

    Regarding anything that requires a sufficient amount of mastication, little can be said. As in most cases, the water was nothing to write home about.

    Pork can-can (or is it kan-kan?). Either way, like a juicy pork chop plus ribs- Outstanding! Also the Mofongo with skirt steak was tender, juicy with a terrific flavor. Can't lose with those.

    Mofongo was very good. We had one with skirt steak with chumichurri, one with Carne Fritas and one with chicken. They were all good, but the Carne Fritas were a bit tough. Overall, a very good meal.

    Very busy, recommended by my hotel's staff but... VERY disappointing. Place was freezing, noisy and the food was not ok. I'd call it a tourist trap, with all do respect.

    Carne grits o encebollada with yellow rice was so savory, and the mofongo churassco was great! The passion fruit mojito was good but a tad on the sweeter side.

    You really go here for the name or for the kick back taxi + hotel employees get… service sucks and food is ok but overpriced… go 2 doors down to Inarú or Al Dente… bit expensive but food is amazing

    Don't let the decor inside or the staff authentic clothes fool you. Only bad experience we had in PR & wished we skip this place! The mofongo was very salty & dry. Go to Cafe Puerto Rico instead!

    Some of the worst and most expensive food I had on my 5 day trip to Puerto Rico. The mofongo was dry. The chicken was tough and chewy. The atmosphere was the only positive aspect. Very traditional.

    Don't bother. Way overpriced and good isn't very good. Chicken was dry and overcooked the bacon wrap was undercooked. The rice was really good, but I don't go to restaurants to just eat rice. Sorry.

    Overpriced and suuuuper slow service. I didn't really have anywhere to be so what made this experience *super* unpleasant was the freezing cold air conditioning. Frozen mango marg was good though!

    Run as fast as you can away from here, nasty food trying to be passed off as authentic. Tourist trap for sure. Horrible service. I'm Puerto Rican not Caucasian so trust me.

    The good reviews here are written by tourists that don't know any better. The food is ok but you can get better authentic food for cheaper. The only hot sauce they have is Tabasco

    Run as fast and as far away as you can. Perhaps the only place on the island that has access to frozen fish. Awful is the best was to describe the food.

    Tough pork chops, undercooked rice, overcooked mahi mahi (had the texture of chicken!) Yeah, this is basically the puerto Rican Chilli's (with the disgruntled employees to match.) And overpriced too!

    We didn't have a wait and the service was ok. The other reviewers were right about the food. It's not bad, but it's certainly not good. And it's overpriced.
