    First time ever that we did not have a traditional Thanksgiving dinner on Thanksgiving day (11/24/22) but it was absolutely worth it. The waiter was on point. The mojitos were delicious. We had arroz con habichuelas y bistec encebollado, paella, shrimp wrapped in plátanos, arroz con tocino, pernil, maduros y ensalada con aguacate. We had the leftovers for lunch the following day. Kudos to the chef and staff.

    The food here is amazing! We were a group of 12 and they accommodated everyone. The margaritas and spicy margaritas are definitely recommended! Amazing! Also, the empanadas are so yummy! The coconut shrimp, chicken wings and stuffed avacado were also all hits. We will totally be back again.

    This place was so good I literally recommend it to everyone. I had the chicken soup it was the best chicken soup I've ever had in my entire life. It is not something that I would have even ordered but the person next to us was eating it and the staff recommended it. I also had the monfongo with shrimp and garlic sauce I would eat that garlic sauce every day if I could. This place is one of the best places I have ever eaten at and is definitely recommended.

    Absolutely amazing Restaurant. This was recommended from my travel agent and we absolutely loved it. We had to stuffed avocado because that's what they recommended and it was so good. We also had the shrimp with rice and beans and the Mofongo everything was great they were waiting for us when we got there and expected us the staff was good and the place was really clean. It was in a good location to we stayed in Isla Verde and got there in like 10 minutes by Uber

    This restaurant was amazing, the best one we went to on our entire trip. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive, he even joked around with our group. All of our food was delicious, we ate way too much but couldn't stop it was so good. Drinks here are also really good, they weren't watered down like most of the restaurants serve. Highly recommend going to this place!

    The coconut shrimp was delicious, the ceviche was good. The paella was for one was abundant and a meal for two or three. My daughters enjoyed it. I had the baby back rib. They were very tasty and also very large portion. The decor felt a little uninspired, from the outside . Mojito was strong, but had better here in PR. The prices were highish, for the ambiance, but good value for the portion size. We would have had a second meal of leftovers, but we had no where to refrigerate them. Waitstaff was attentive.

    Our waiter at Waiters made us feel as if the theme was to be rude to guests. He seemed very disappointed when we arrived with reservations and resentfully served us all night. I cannot remember if the food was good bec his behavior upstaged it.

    This is a nice little quaint place. There is a small outside seating area, and more space inside. If you are looking for ambience, this may not be your place. But the waiter was very good. The food was good. They specialize in Puerto Rican dishes.

    This is the second time at this restaurant. Both times food and service were excellent. Only complaint is that this time I ordered soft drinks (diet coke), and since it was brought already in a glass, I was not aware that refills were not included and so each “refill” was charged. The customer should be made aware of this.
