Nothing really stood out food wise, wasn’t bad (at all) just nothing I’d rush back for. Live music and ambience was great
Is great outdoor space for groups. The waitstaff is friendly and accommodating. We ordered the mafongo, tostones with avocado salad, shrimp and beef empanadas, chicheron's, and fried cheese with guava sauce. SO EXCELLENT. Cocktails were great too, Don Old Fashioned, Smokey Paloma. Went twice with different groups of friends this weekend alone!
Always a positive experience over the years. Will keep going back.
Absolutely incredible food, our new favorite place in Cambridge. The avocado tostones were amazing, the lomo saltado was the highlight!
Wonderful vibe, excellent food, great music and delicious drinks
Fun inventive food from Puerto Rico. lively and comfortable Central Sq outdoor patio. great drinks too!
The food was amazing and the outdoor patio was a nice vibe. The chicken chicharrones were amazing! I would definitely go again.
Fabulous Puerto Rican food, great and courteous service, and delicious Mojitos!
Fabulous authentic Puerto Rican food and lots of creative alternatives. Festive atmosphere, not pretentious, just great. Best to go when the band Ten Tumbau plays! They're OUTSTANDING.
Service was slow.
Amazing food and drinks like always. The staff is always very friendly.
Empanadas were bomb. Ceviche was excellent. Waited a bit for your our drinks but the server was nice.
Food took way too long to be served, over an hour. In the end their credit card system was not working so we had to go to the ATM to pay cash. Food wasn't as great as expected, overall too expensive for what it is.

The place, the ambiance, the crew, the food is spectacular!! The Chef is great!!

Amazing food service drinks music dessert everything! Going back in less than a week
Awesome 👌 food people are very nice nice ambient
Great food and ambiance. As always the chef Giovana Huyke, her food are incredible delicious. She really put puertorrican food in high standards. Great place to eat in any occasion.
Francheska was an amazing server and I appreciated them accommodating my request to be seated on a different side of the restaurant.
Delicioso todo, la música estupenda y el servicio muy bueno
Food was amazing! Staff was super friendly and attentive. Very well distanced tables outside on the patio.
Excellent food and ambiance. Very legit Puerto Rican fare; chef Giovanna is a superstar. Live music a plus.
So much fun! I love the music and the ambience it’s like eating in the middle of a club! The food was delicious although I do wish there were more vegetarian options. I could drink the mojitos all day long!
The food is great, the mojitos are spectacular, and last night's band was terrific too. All in all, a great south American party!
Great food! Cool bands! Definitely a place to go
Loved the mojitos and fried tempura roll. Cerviche was great. Main was good but appetizers were special- next time two of us will order three appetizers and drinks.
Wonderful delicious food. Would highly recommend the mofongo dishes. They were all great. Drinks were tasty and strong too. Definitely would go back!
The food and drink were par excellence -- varied, flavorable, shareable, and good-sized portions. My guests and I were thrilled with the food. Our server took a bit to first get to us, but think we got him at the end of a busy period, because after that everything was timely and attentive.
We arrived at 8:15 and were seated in the middle dining area. About 10 minutes later a LOUD event began in the back room (sounded like a party/fundraiser or similar) with overpowering dance music/cheering/speaker announcements etc. While my friends and I could still converse (we all have loud enough voices), it was a complete ambience downer and not in the style of the music playing in the dining background. Would give 5 stars for everything else and otherwise request management look into segregating noise from the back room.
The shrimp mofongo with creole sauce was delicious. My spicy Margherita was terrific and a nice accompaniment to the fried yucca we ordered as a nosh. My two friends also enjoyed their dinner. One had the roast chicken, the other had stuff that I'm not fond of -- like raw tuna-- so didn't taste.
La fábrica is always great. I recommend the passion fruit mojito
This was one of my fav. Place but After covid I think the owner changed or something b/c it’s not the same menu , the drinks are no longer the same & they added things into there menu that is not Cuban. Was so disappointed. My sister in law order steak and her steak wasn’t cooked one part of the steak.
Absolutely love the vibe, the food and the service. The plena and Bomba was the best part, felt like I was in Puerto Rico!
Great energy, wonderful food and good service. Thank you.
Food was outstanding, drinks phenomenal and service was very attentive and nice!! Always coming back!! Kevin is a sweetheart!!
Loved it here…food was delicious, drinks were great, and the service was outstanding! Highly recommend!
Food is amazing! Service was spectacular! Had a great overall experience and look forward to my next visit here.
Terrific drinks! And good food too. This was our first visit. The outdoor space looked particularly inviting; next time we will try to sit there.
So good! My new favorite go-to place. Drinks AND food are fresh
