We waited over an hour for appetizers. Then when we finally got our main courses the food was just ok. We told the waiter to keep our drinks coming needless to say we only had one

I must say this I don’t write a lot of reviews but this little place deserves it !!!! Is a hidden gem in El Condado !!!! Javier and Ann are very nice and attentive and the food was great the best we had so far since we been here . I highly recommend it don’t pay attention to all the negative reviews everything is done at the moment we had the mahi mahi tempura omg it was perfect !!! I had sancocho and my husband the fry fish it was outstanding very very please 💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕

We ate outside and had on their patio/deck. It is right in the street with heavy neighborhood traffic. Strong smell of the street sewage and car exhaust. We had the Chicken and Rice and the Skirt Steak. The rice was very flavorful but the chicken was very bland. The Skirt Stake had a great marinade with just the right amount of char from the grill, it tasted great. The unfortunate issue was that the steak was tough and chewy. Very average for a place we had higher expectations. I would not choose this restaurant again.

This is my favorite place to go in Condado! I love the Avocado Stuffed Shrimp!
I have never been disappointed. The Staff are so friendly and welcoming. I always feel I'm coming home when I go there.

I loved the atmosphere. Great music playing. The food was great! I orders the crab meat mofonogo with the creole sauce. Very tasty. Bare Knuckle old fashioned was excellent
Downfall the service was very slow, the restaurant is very small maybe about 8-10 total tables. You need to make a reservation. There were 2 men working the whole restaurant & bar. Definitely a must visit when in town.

We found this little place right across the street from our hotel. The local food was great, the drinks were awesome and our server was very helpful. We went for dinner there twice in our 5 day trip.

They had to be under staffed because one waiter for all the tables. The host made us stand outside but then random people selling flowers would just walk in without permission while we are eating. Drinks subpar and food even worse. Highly disappointed with the rating they have. Would not go again and didn’t follow my notes for birthday dessert. Never again

Last minute reservation, waiter (I forget his name) was really great and patient with us as we were very “hangry” lol nonetheless the drinks were amazing and the hot sauce is second to none, honestly try it if you really love hot sauce!! They are also the rice Gods, it’s just as good as my mothers if not better! This place makes really good sauce make sure to try the pink sauce (ketchup/Mayo/garlic)

One of the beat restaurants that we tried . Even booked a second dinner here . It doesn’t look like much outside but inside it’s very nice and has a date like atmosphere.

The food and service was phenomenal

Sangria was strong and very tasty

Absolutely go here !!!!

Food was not great. Took 1 hour to get served. Expected more from a place that requires a reservation and then takes an hour to serve my food. Not worth the hype.

Excellent food that was reasonably priced, but service was not so great.
We had the crab mofongo and skirt steak mofongo with the fried cheese and guava app. Everything was prepared well and delicious. We were seated outside, which faced a side street loading dock, so noisy and not too visually pleasing. The waiter was very nice, but not to be seen much due to his being busy with inside customers. If we needed something we had to hope he was coming to serve a new outside table, or go inside ourselves to ask for what we needed, like more water on an 88degree night or a second round of drinks.

Doesn't look like much from the outside - like a fast food place. Don't judge it by that. Bottom line, the service was brutally slow. About an hour or more before we served. I had to ask the status of our order several times. The good news is, in the end when the food finally arrived, it was very good (meat paella). The outdoor patio isn't very attractive. But it does give you a nice view of the area.

Absolutely perfect dining experience. Our Waiter Juan was fantastic! The food from start to finish was amazing. One of the best meals we had on the island and an absolute must for when we come back!

You gotta try the mango or passion fruit Sangria!!!

Javier and Juan service was great! The Mojitos were really really good. Must try the ceviche. The negative side was that the rice was undercooked and the food about an hour or more.

Overall in line with current prices on the island even outside of Condado. The ceviche while good needed more variety and why in Bourdain's name would you put a cold avocado on a bed of warm, bland mashed potatoes and then fill with ceviche? The skirt steak mofongo was on point though!

My fiancé refuses to eat at the same place twice, home or vacation. The food was so amazing we went here twice in a row and he had Mofongo (different proteins) both times. The staff was out of this world friendly and really make you feel like your at home Javier is the BEST!!! Deff a place I will go back to over and over it’s just that damn amazing
