This tucked away eatery in Rio Piedras serves some of the best Spanish specialties on the island to a mostly business-oriented crowd. Décor in the bar is very simple. The food is decidedly Spanish-Latin. Try a tapas of Iberic Ham, or the cream of the day as appetizers. Entrées here change frequently, as there is a daily special. Try the Lamb Fillet, Chateaubriand and Paella. Spanish desserts and pastries are available. Do not overlook the fine Spanish wines, by the glass or the bottle.
