We definitely enjoyed our time. The location is so convenient. The prices are average but service is great!

Looking for a quick bite, my 8-year-old stopped in. I was lucky to find that on Wednesdays Mojitos are 2 for 1 and we both had appetizers that were both tasty (ceviche filled mofongo and rice breaded chicken) and very large for apps.

Shared a couple of appetizers for lunch - the fried manchego cheese balls were really good and the fish tacos were pretty good - lightly fried but came with a little too much sauce on them. Service was friendly but a little slow (seems to be that way everywhere we went.)

They have a "country rice" entrée that they advertise extensively outside of the entrance and also on the menu-- so I wanted it, but it's for two people only, which is not obvious until you examine the legal fine print on the menu. Errrrnt! (That's a buzzer signaling a foul). So, a chicken breast did nicely, with an OK chimichurri sauce; my wife had the Peruvian ceviche which was actually good. Two draft beers, a good mojito, and two mains was $60, highly priced for lunch anywhere. Service was awful and slow. But, it's air conditioned, which is nice for a hot tourist not used to the heat. Nice location by the forts, and it's within the Museum of the Americas, and conventionally opens at noon, during the hour which the museum is closed from noon to 1:00. Warning-- no bathroom. Despite being a restaurant and a working cinema the bathroom is somewhere outside, and the waiter was unable to give my wife directions to find it (reference, poor and slow service).

My husband and I came here on a recommendation from a tour guide because of their extensive mojito list. While the coconut mojitos were very good, we were left severely disappointed in the food. I thought it was safe to order the fish tacos, but they were completely bland, dry, and the fish was greasy and overcooked. I ate one and gave another to my husband who couldn't eat his $34 pork chop. It was horribly overcooked, dripping with grease, and so fried you couldn't even see/taste the meat. He had one bite and no more. We are not picky eaters or pretentious about our food, but this was shocking. The waiter asked how things were, and we let him know the pork chop was super greasy and overcooked. No concessions were made and we were left very disappointed and unsatisfied.

Quite by accident while on an all day walking tour of San Juan we came across this great little restaurant. We needed a break and their outdoor seating with a spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean was just the ticket. Wonderful food, great beer, super service and a beautiful San Juan afternoon made this a not soon to be forgotten lunch experience.

We found this restaurant by happy accident and really enjoyed the funky cinema poster decor, their little theater, Eileen's service and especially the food! My onion soup was freshly made minutes before it was served and my husband's Puerto Rican pork and rice dish was delicious and a HUGE serving. Highly recommend this great little place - and do ask your server for a little tour of the cinema!

I rate this high due to the view you have while enjoying a cool drink, it's spectacular !! The only place you have such a view of the Morro and a cocktail in San Juan. Service was very slow while we were there, only one person for all the tables was really unacceptable. We ended up going inside to the bar to get a round of drinks. Cocktails were very good however.

We went there after having a bad time at Ostra Cosa. We thought it was a bar with movies playing but no, it was much more and it was soooo good. There was a local stand up comedy (very good and recognized local artists) that had us laughing the entire time. This is a separate room from the restaurant. The menu selection for this area is small but nice. Food presentation was creative. We (a couple) had three appetizers, dessert and drinks. It was around $80 with tips. The show fee was $50. Eager to return. On the negative, restrooms where far away and not clean, and we did need to wait about 35 minutes in order to get the show tickets as they were having trouble with the machine.
