    The food was amazing and so was the service, I wish we had one in Miami, it is our new favorite restaurant in San Juan. I had an Oxtail with Corvina, it sounded weird but was recommended by our waiter and it was incredible, we will be back.

    Eat here if you love good food! We tried one of the specials - fried pork ears, and they were a treat, along with the duck spring rolls. The signature dish Chilean Sea Bass is heaven for truffle lovers, and the lobster mafongo is a reason to return to the restaurant. (Insert drooling emoji here.)

    Perfect spot for a romantic date night. The service was top notch and the food was delicious. We really enjoyed the jumbo lump crab and the lobster was truly the best lobster we’ve ever had. The cod dish was also good but could have used a touch of salt to help bring out all of the flavors. Recommend going with the house favorites as those dishes were truly special. Overall a great spot for a tasty meal. While the menu is a bit pricey, it’s definitely worth the value in taste and service, especially when compared to other local restaurants.

    I seriously can not say enough wonderful things about the restaurant, staff and Chef Pagan himself. We have been following Mario since his days at the Water Club in Carolina. His food is amazing and his wait staff are impeccable. We had the queen salmon and the porcini crusted tuna. OUTSTANDING! Chef Pagan was kind enough to visit our table knowing we are huge fans. Another amazing evening…..11 visits and counting!

    Excellent modern interpretation of Puerto Rican cuisine. If the pig ear chicharrones are on the menu, get them. But, it is a can't miss menu that covers land and sea and the staff, especially the bar team, is outstanding. Highly recommend.
