My BEST meal in Puerto Rico! OMG! I didn’t know what to expect when I pulled up here. But I’m so glad, I listened to these reviews! Hands down! The best meal for our entire trip! We had the spicy garlic wings, fries, Lobster Empanadas...and seafood rice! Everything was amazing! I also had a Mango Mojito; sooooo goood! My only issue was that there were NO real non-seafood options. My husband ended up having to go to another kiosk alone for dinner and couldn’t eat with the family.More

Really may be one of my favorite restaurants ever. I was amazed at the kindness displayed by the owner and his employees. They were able to accommodate 12 people on short notice, and the owner was even able to give us a ride home because...ubers stopped running at a certain time in Puerto Rico. Overall I am so glad i go to experience this place it was soooooo tasty and offered an authentic Puerto Rican experience. PLEASE GO HERE YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!!!!!!More

My girls and I were in Puerto Rico- I for the first time. And I have to say that was one of the BEST restaurants I visited. I came in with a group of 12 women and the staff was AMAZING. They were patient with...us even when we were indecisive and got us any and everything we needed. The owner was so so sweet! My friend left her food after they locked down and he made her a new plate. You can tell everyone we encountered at this restaurant was genuinely kind and compassionate. and of course the food was BOMB!!! It comes in large portions so I guarantee you'll be full when you're done eating. I really need more people to know about this restaurant. I wish them so much success and prosperity. Come here to eat! You'll love it!More

My husband and I have been coming to PR for the last 7 years. Every year this is the 1 place that is a MUST! Leo and his staff are very friendly. The food is the best on the island. Some say a little expensive...I say you pay for what you get. And what you get is mouth watering food that goes great with any one of the mojitos. Go and you will be hooked.More

Very reasonable...much more reasonable than you’d find in the tourist areas of old San Juan.
