Stopped in for a meal, ate for 3 (literally ordered 2 entrees plus drinks?). Chef was fun and engaging, and food was excellent. Margarita is his special recipe. Cash only. Check it out!

I had dinner at Guayacan and tried their mofongo, which was excellent! Didn't notice the place at first, but it was definitely a good choice! I highly recommend it if you want a taste of local food, yet creatively revisited. Service was also very good.

Great little spot, I think open only on weekends at this point, just double check, if you see the sandwich boards outside with the specials, they are open. Try to go when Donald is doing his, Sinatra, or the young man who does Bob Marley,...More
