The minute we reached our hotel we walked to Cafe del Angel to get my husband his canoa. He fell in love with it 2 years ago and made this his first and daily stop during our time in San Juan.

I have been coming to this place for years on my trips to Puerto Rico. My favorite dish is the "Puerto Rican Combination" which includes roast pork (pernil) rice, beans, fried plantians, and a pastel (but only order it for dinner because they use a different cut of meat for lunch). They also make a great mofongo. It is a... More

We walked by this place and were greeted by a friendly guy who walked us in and sat us down. He had a lot of energy, super funny. I really wish I would have caught his name. We had breakfast here and the service and food was great! Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. We ate here for breakfast two... More

To say this place was amazing isn't giving it justice. The employees were all so nice and extremely helpful with menu items. Everything we got for food was hot, delicious, and fast! Their mojitos were the best I've ever had! Their angel cheesecake is to die for also! Overall an amazing experience and definitely makes me love Puerto Rico even... More

If you happen to be in Condado, stop in for a mimosa and incredible service..there is a charming gentleman outside handing out flyers and personally offering you a 10% discount and a fresh flower he picks himself, or makes one for you out of a palm stalk. The service inside is just as good-very attentive. The omelettes are huge and... More

We ate here on our first night in San Juan because it was conveniently located across the street from our hotel, La Concha.The calamari with a remoulade type sauce was delicious as was the mofongo ad croquettes. Our less than adventurous kids enjoyed burgers and fried chicken.

Very busy place with an extremely friendly staff. The food was deliciously Puerto Rican. The food took some time to be served but it was worth the wait. Many authentic Puerto Rican dishes. Would recommend.

We had dinner here in Feb., 2017. It was very busy and it seemed as though the servers had trouble keeping up. The food was good, with an extensive menu of PR food. The bartender mixed the wrong drink at one point, but it was quickly corrected.

Authentic Puerto Rican fare, overall a good experience (not great). My primary complaint was the poor beer list. In today's craft beer world, you should have more than 5 beers (all mass produced). But, the food was very good and the service was good as well. The combination plate was excellent and my son had crab Mofongo and loved it.... More
