Tiny and local with large, delicious scrambled eggs with cheeses and veggies. Had plantains as a side which were also a generous platter. About $6 for eggs with bacon and toast. Coffee is individually prepared and small Euro sized and wonderful. Very basic deco. Next to Cribe Hilton.

Small restaurant with friendly service and limited seating. Try the fried Cuban and Masitas de Mero with rice and beans, tropical salad. Fantastic!

Not that the Caribe Hilton didn't have some good food options, but they were certainly pricey. We discovered the Tropical Cafeteria basically right across the street, with great food choices and very reasonable pricing - and you felt like you were dealing with a mom and pop operation - which it probably is. I personally really liked the mahi-mahi tacos, and my wife really liked those, plus the burgers. Will definitely go back on our next visit to San Juan.

Right across from the Hilton, so I was expecting overpriced food, but it was so good. Nothing special, but a good bargain. Staff was so nice and talkative!
