    The atmosphere and the food of this place are amazing. My boyfriend and I went for lunch and we were not disappointed!! Immediately walking in, the decor and ambiance was enchanting, I loved the music and wall art especially. Staff were very kind and the food came in a timely manner. I ordered carnitas tacos ($14) y horchata($6), and for my partner, carne asada(around 15) and a Jarritos($3.50). Horchata prices are different everywhere so I can’t complain. Overall we spent 50 (including tip) for the two of us. The meat was so juicy and flavorful, as well as the refried beans. For our first time in PR, this is our top restaurant so far 🫶

    Unpretentious and very fresh tasting food. We had a lovely evening. We were warned the service was slow and it was but they were very kind. The waitress was covering the whole place and worked hard all night so not her fault. We weren’t sure the etiquette as we can in and stood around looking awkward but we think that was because the waitress was so busy she hadn’t spotted us to seat us. Instead we went to the bartender who said there was an opening outside. It was so pretty outside under the shade with a cute alley to our side. The tacos were really good (carnitas and pastor).

    Excellent food!! Slow service, but they give you notice in advance. The only time we had a poor experience with service on the island. Our server was not a native Puerto Rican, and I think this made a whole difference. The server was not friendly or did have any significant courtesy or manner in her way to serve us or any of the other people in the restaurant. Thank god the flavors were excellent, and my husband agreed that they were very similar to the ones found in Mexico. I hope the service gets better, because is a nice spot for Mexican food.

    Delicious cocktails and very good food. Funky fun atmosphere that was quite cozy. Loved the art on the walls and a wall of plants at the front. We sat inside, the outdoor patio was closed. Great service even though we don't speak Spanish, our server was very helpful.
