Stopped by this small restaurant in need of some guacamole. The strawberry jalapeno hot sauce is amazing. Great mojitos. I had a mango mojito.

This was the first restaurant we tried during our week in Puerto Rico. We waited for what seemed like and hour for our food but it was delicious and well worth the wait. You can sit outside or inside. It was centrally located in Old San Juan. Really fresh and delicious.

Good food, in fact great food.....but goodness gracious it is shockingly slow! I couldn't believe how long it took, to be fair they did warn us the kitchen was slow....however I had no idea it'd be that slow. I would recommend this restaurant if they could fix kitchen times.

This is one of the best places to eat. The Duck quesadilla and coconut Margarita are amazing. I would strongly recommend this restaurant.

Excellent stop for dinner in the heart of Old San Juan! My husband had the tuna steak and I had the La Madrid Tacos (chicken). Very very good!

We stopped in on a Sunday as we strolled around the shops of San Juan. Sat at the bar and watched every drink being crafted with the freshest ingredients. Highly recommend it!!

Madre mia! In the menu it looked fair enough, and the restaurant was among the recommended by my hotel concierge. Got a bad feeling before I ordered, but was in no mood to look around for alternative restaurants. So I took the chance. What a disappointment it was. Three corn tapas with chicken, luke warm, and I will only describe... More

I'm going to admit that this wasn't our first choice but it ended up working out perfectly. Excellent brunch options and everyone loved what they ordered. I fell in love with the Flor de Jamaica lemonade. The server was super-friendly too. I will return on my next visit to PR.
