    Birthday occasion, it was clear on the reservation but was not acknowledged. Place was highly rated, menu looked great so i decided. When we got there it was dead, Saturday night 8pm. Reviews said live music, happenin’ spot, nope. Not a soul. We order an appetizer, alcapurria with short rib which was fine but it can feed 4 and nothing special just an alcapurria on a bed of shredded beef. Then we ordered the short rib mangu. It was terrible. Slathered with way too much cheese, then i went digging for mangu and all that there was of mangu was a tablespoon the rest was meat and cheese. Brussel sprouts were burnt and bland. I wouldnt recommend this place to anyone. I love to eat. Im a chef that travels a lot. I gave it 2 stars cause the service was great from the waitress, the rest wasnt her fault. The chef that runs this place should retire cause they dont love it anymore. But this should be a 1 star. Dont waste your time

    Do yourself a favor and visit this lovely restaurant in Condado. From the moment you enter the restaurant you feel its ambiance: chill atmosphere and soothing music. The host was friendly and attentive. We first ordered cocktails (a mezcalita and m.mule) and they were spot on. After the cocktails, wine was next. Since we always like to bring our own bottle of wine to restaurants we did not order from their list (btw the corkage fee is reasonable; $15 I believe). However, I did examine the wine list which contains a variety of good wines at a reasonable price. The food was delicious, very beautifully presented and creative. For dessert we had the tres leches de coquito- absolutely amazing. During the end of our meal Chef Yamil Cruz greeted us at our table and very professionally made sure everything was in order. The service is unmatched. The staff truly cares about your experience. Highly recommend!

    We took our son here while vacationing in PR for his 16th birthday and the food was delightful. It took a while to come out but it was well worth the wait. The flavors are unique yet not odd and just makes you feel at ease. The food was very fresh and they even read my request to bring out a cake. So many restaurants fail to read the notes so I was very pleased with this level of detail. I’m from Philly where we have many expensive restaurants and this one honestly surpasses all of them including Eddie V’s, Sullivan’s, Ruth Chris, Capital Grille, etc. Compared to other food I’ve had, I would say it’s well underpriced for what you will receive. If you’ve ever been to Paris the food here is very similar.

    El menú es limitado, más si eres vegano. De repente el menu no ofrece un menú internacional creativo sino muy básico. La alternativa vegana que ofrecieron fue un mangu y vegetales. El ambiente y decoración es acogedor y bonito. El mesero no tenía pleno conocimiento del menú en muchas opciones, sin embargo, fue amable. Si buscas un lugar para alguna tapa y conversar sería perfecto. Si estás buscando una experiencia más alta en la elaboración de platos, no es el lugar.

    What a hidden gem. The food was really special and unlike so many restaurants in Puerto Rico they are light on the salt which really allows the flavors to come out. The Lobster Mac & Cheese was fantastic as well as the Stuffed Avocado with short ribs. And the service and ambiance was perfect. DEFINITELY going back!

    The Service was great but the food and the drinks were ok. It was our 2nd time there and menu is very limited. The couple next to us were very load so they made our date miserable. We ordered chicken curry with rice and the mangu with ribs, the ribs were burn and rice was over cook. They need to redesign the menu.
