The restaurant they selected fit the bill just right. When I told the cab driver where we wanted to go, he had one comment, "they do it right."
The second we entered Ajili Mojili we knew we had received good advice. The place was packed with locals. I didn't see any tourists in this place. While it was crowded it didn' feel like it. After greeting our friends who were already seated, we got down to the business of ordering.
When the waiter found out I was only interested in local cuisine, he did everything he could to help me. After explaining some of the dishes I settled on Monfongo con Camerones,and it was excellent. This dish consists of ground plantains mixed with rice, and fried in garlic and butter. This is then served with you're choice of meat. I chose shrimp. The side dish was rice and beans but the name of this dish now eludes me. My wife played the chicken on this trip and ate a steak, also very good.
The food, atmosphere, service, and price were all outstanding. The people were very friendly and the locals know the place.

This place is more of a dress-up restaurant with a nice atmosphere. It is located on the tourist street of Ashford Avenue. Depending on what time you decide to eat dinner, you may want to make reservations. We arrived around 8pm and didn't have any problems getting a table. The dress attire here is a little dressier than most places we visited. Nice slacks and a dress shirt should be fine.
Our waiter (I believe his name was Carlos) had our wine order to us literally 20 seconds after we ordered. He was on the ball with everything we ordered, and the service there was great. The menu was in both English and Spanish, and the staff was is very willing to accommodate you in any way they can. The halibut and the steak we ordered were excellent! If you’re looking for a nice restaurant for dining and good conversation, I would suggest this place.
