I've been visiting this restaurant for over 8 years. The food is fantastic, the service is very good and the prices considerably good. I've never had a single complaint or desepcion. Recommended.

If you are in the area this place is fairly priced for the great food. My family really enjoyed the steak and pollo. If you are in the isla verde or condado area this will be a drive for you. I'm giving it four stars because the service was a bit slow.
