From the smoky flavor of the berms with our migas to our huevos with beef and cheese, the food is 5 stars all the way. Delightful service as well.

We visited here with friends and had their skirt steak.. it was large enough portion for the two of us. It was cooked perfectly and the accompanying sides were great.

You know the food is going to be delicious when the waiter gets excited for you! Amazing food with great care taken in the presentation. Will absolutely come back next trip. Also, our waiter (who is also the weekday manager) was fantastic. He was on point with his recommendations and clearly cared about our experience. Bravo!

This is a wonderful, little restaurant in Old San Juan. We visited for Sunday brunch. Everything we tried was delicious. Order the 'cheese fondue' as an appetizer. Drinks were good and the service was attentive. Very nice atmosphere. We'll be back on our next visit!

Awesome service, the food (fish tacos) were delicious and came with three dipping sauces. House red wine was really yummy and staff were attentive even though we were some of the only patrons sitting outside. Definitely would return!

Nice small place, very welcoming and with a good vibe. Enjoyed food. Drinks, not soo much. We ordered 2 mojitos and they only tastes like juice. Other than that, i would recommend it. Open late!
