    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.

    Traditional PR fare like mofongo. Kinda touristy. Large portions.
  • Phillip S.
    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.

    Really wonderful. Top notch service, delicious food, great ambiance as well. Also very close to all the action happening in Old San Juan. Make it a mission to go here!

    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.

    Order the "Festival Tipico" appetizer! It's delicious and you get to try a variety of typical Puerto Rican foods. Also, get the red Sangria. It's so good! The service here is excellent, too!

    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

    The ceviche was yummy! I couldn't eat after days of meat-filled Puerto Rican meals. This, plus rice and beans did the trick.
