Said they were sweet enough and probably could have gone without syrup. [My] omelette had spinach, onions and peppers. Substituted toast for fries. Enjoyed all! Also had a vanilla latte."

Yelper Sally R. noted, "I loved the gesture of serving complimentary toasted bread with sauces for the table. Bread with butter and strong garlic sauce is very commonly served in restaurants [on] the island. The roasted pork with rice (lechon y arroz con gandules) was the stellar dish of this visit. Pork was perfectly cooked with a moist texture and dressed with some grilled onions."
