    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.

    This is a great spot to try mofongo, which is mashed green plantains stuffed with fish or meat and served in a traditional wooden mortar and pestle. Read more

    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!
