    The spinach stuffed pork is amazing. Also recommend the Ropa de Viejo based dishes especially the one that is played on plantains. The chocolate creme brule

    Very touristy and service was weird. They pushed hard for us to order a specific wine, and when we asked for a moment to decide what to order, the waiter hovered. Paella was good though.

    The mufango here was good. It's in a garlic butter sauce and is pretty rich. If you're into butter check it out. If not, get the fish.

    Not for vegetarians. Ask first, the frijoles have meat ... only dishes that are veggie-lifestyle friendly are: the toro fritters, salad, and plain risotto balls ... nice, but pass on this

    For dessert, I've been on a hunt for the best Tres Leches in SJ, & this place serves the least exciting version of this dessert. A small, boring white cube in the middle of a white plate. Tastes ok.
