Overall the food was ok. The Platano maduro was really greasy but tasty. The bistec ensebollado (steak with onions) was a little tough to cut although the mofongo was awesome.

Really really fun place to eat lunch. It's like a party on the plate! Food is a little salty, but still delicious. I love the ground beef canoas, and comes with rice, choice of beans, this yummy tomato-onion bit, guacamole...yum yum yum!

The oven baked chicken thighs are tender and tasty, especially delicious with a little of the pineapple flavored hot sauce and a bite or two of the sweet plantains. Arrive a little early to get a seat in the window. Waitstaff is friendly and helpful....More
