This is a nice little spot that offers outside patio eating under umbrellas next to a street. The street isn't too busy and so it is pleasant. The inside area is clean and pleasant too. We wanted authentic Puerto Rican food and the waitress was a little unsure what to suggest but the food that came was delicious. We were pleased with the service and the quantity was nice full plates, you wont leave hungry!

Our 2 families stopped on a cruise and were pleasantly surprised! Got a bunch to share: Sopa de Pollo (delicious chicken noodle soup), sorullitos (corn sticks - even the kids liked these!), mini mofongos, tostones rellenos (we liked the beef more than the crab), arroces (mixed rice with shrimp - this was amazing), and pork chops, which were lightly fried and delicious. They even had chicken strips and fries for the kids. Would definitely recommend, close to the port too!

We were in San Juan for the night prior to a cruise. Stopped by for dinner and the food was excellent. My wife had a small pizza and I had their chicken and rice. Very busy so we had to wait but it was worth it. Reasonably priced and great atmosphere.

Cafe del Angel provides authentic Puerto Rican cuisine in a cafe style. There is an outdoor as well as an indoor area. We had the mofongos (with shrimp and skirt steak) which were excellent.

The paella stuffed red snapper was absolutely amazing - both in taste and presentation.

We highly recommend this restaurant if you want some excellent local food, BUT BE WARNED. They add in a tip for even just a couple (common for groups, but come on for one couple). AND THEY DONT POINT IT OUT. And if you pay by credit card, the detailed bill "mysteriously" does not come back out so you have the opportunity to DOUBLE TIP. Friends of ours got tricked and ended up giving an overall 35% tip.

We have read several comments of poor service, we did not have this problem. We got great service. We left them an additional 5% over the (secret) 15% they added in up front.
