It was our last night in Old San Juan, we'd had good meals, and wanted to end with a great one, with authentic Puerto Rican food. We got one of the best meals we'd each had in recent memory. With great, attentive service, fun music, and quirky retro decor, it was a hit all around.
I didn't love the black bean cakes appetizer but my husband did. They were good, just not my thing. My entree was awesome - grilled, plantain encrusted dorado, with mashed potatoes and yucca. I love dorado, sometimes called mahi mahi there (though different than mahi mahi here). Adding plantains, which I eat with every meal there, was food heaven. Crispy, tender, juicy, mild (which I like) but not at all bland, just perfect. The mashed/yucca blend was fabulous.
My husband, at the suggestion of our great server, got the short ribs, and said they were incredible.
I was asked how sweet or sour I like my mojito. When it tasted strong and not sweet enough for me, they re-made it.
Dessert was wonderful. The music was great. Great experience, great night. Highly recommended.
