The wait staff was surly, the food greasy, and the place was patrolled by bouncer thugs. We had tried to get into Don Tello's next door ( a very good place) but they had over an hour wait so we decided to try Casa Catano. They obviously were there to serve the Catano locals only and certainly did not like Americans. I was there with my Puerto Rican wife and 85 year old mother in law so I am used to being the only gingo in a place when I visit PR. Can't say the reverse for the staff at Casa Catano.
The night ended for us after I asked the waitress when they were going to stop the drunk from interferring with the band that was playing by singing loudly and off key to the songs being played since up to that point all the staff had been ignoring the guy. The waitress went to talk to the manager and the next thing I knew, I had 3 bouncers standing around me with arms crossed telling be to leave in a threatening manner. Specifically, one bouncer told me, " You came, you ate, your paid, you go." First time I've ever heard of anyone being thrown out of a bar for complaining about a disruptive drunk. He was obviously a local drunk who the staff felt they needed to protect from the nasty gringo. Americans stay away; this place is bad news. I'm a 66 year old man there with my wife and 85 year old mother in law and had hardly gone out on the town looking to make trouble.
