My family and I ate here on our last night in San Juan. We were so excited about the idea, but ended up being very disappointed. Some of the issues, I'm sure, were due to communication problems. When we called for a reservation we were told there were none available for that night. My husband called a bit later and was told that yes, we could make a reservation. We assumed that someone had canceled, but when we arrived, we were the only people there. During the entire meal only two other tables were seated. We ordered three appetizers and two entrees, and asked several times that they be served all at once so we could share. The waiter always said, "of course," but then served everything separately anyway. Also, we got an appetizer we had not even ordered.

The food itself was disappointing. The only thing we all enjoyed were the springrolls. They were crisp and tasty and the sauce was good. The veggie tempura was mostly sad broccoli and it was very dark, almost over fried, and heavy. The vegetable crostini consisted of some sort of salad with creamy dressing piled on bread. We did not request, but got anyway, the tuno cakes, which were fried balls with some sort of white paste inside. No flavor, although the breading was crunchy and they were fried nicely. The two appetizers we really wanted - portobello kebabs on grilled polenta and pita pizzas were not available.

Our entrees were the Pan seared tofu steak in a soy & ginger sauce and the veggie paella. Of the two, the paella was the better. It was crunchy on the bottom, but very oily. I had quite a puddle of oil on my plate. The tofu was hardly seared - just sort of white on a white plate with a triangle-shaped mound of white rice.

We ended up stopping at the Super Max on the way home for junk food to eat back at the condo.
