    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.

    We shared the coconut shrimp appetizer and paella for two as our entree. Good was good. Service was only OK. Not a bad choice…but not the best either. Entire place could use a good cleaning and fresh paint job.

    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.

    This unassuming spot was the best food we had in Puerto Rico and the best service I’ve had in years. The food was absolutely outstanding and our server was a true professional. Cannot recommend highly enough. Will admit, the heavily branded exterior and sports on the TV screens gave us momentary pause but trust that this relaxed space will provide a meal you won’t forget.

    Nice spot but it took forever to get our meal. The food was tasty but not particularly good for the long wait. If they can get the food out more promptly, I'd recommend as a neighborhood spot for great beans and rice.

    We got seated at 8:30pm and ordered our drinks and meal (steak and their salmon special) there were only another 3 tables with people and we waited over an hour and when we told them that we wanted cancel the order, the waiter went to check in the kitchen and told us that the food will be ready in a few. At that point we were over it. I would understand if they were busy or if the place was packed. But it is unacceptable to wait so long for a skirt steak and a salmon special.

    Relaxing and welcoming. Chef special snapper was glorious. Mofongo stuffed with ceviche was beautifully done. Flan dessert was lovely, and the piña coladas could have been dessert themselves — so good. Be prepared to wait for the check — it will give you time to savor a memorable evening. Would definitely eat there again.

    The waiter was rude, impatient, inconsiderate, and dismissive. We were sat right in front of the bathroom. although multiple tables became available and us repeatedly asking to be moved, we were told this is all they have available to us. We had reservations and were told tables were being reached until we left no other parties occupied the table. After sitting for 15 minutes watching people going and out of the bathroom, we lost our appetite and asked for our food to go. It took 1.15 hrs to get our food. Folks who came after us were eating before we could get our to-go order. It was an awful experience and would not recommend anyone going there.

    We waited over an hour and a half for our first appetizer to come out. Then another 30 minutes for the main dishes. Recommend going when you are not in a hurry.
