First off, the coffee here is great! I also had a fish filet casado here which was very tasty (although a bit oily) as well. The prices are good and the people who own it are nice!

A real Caribbean authentic fusion culinary experience and great prices! The wait times can be a bit long, but it's worth it for the arroz con pollo and Caribbean chicken.
