Hey have lunch specials every day. I ordered once the pasta and it was delicious. also the chicken with salsa de Guayaba. It is never full at lunch, so no wait time. It is right in front of SanPatricio Mall, you can walk from there and just 15 minutes away from Condado.

Food tasted ok, but was cold. Took years for them to serve our food, and there were a couple of huge flies around our table.

Great food and service. We were in a hurry and informed our server. We had a relaxed 3 course meal in 50 minutes. As an appetizer we had the most delicious codfish croquettes we have ever eaten. As main courses we ordered a chicken and cheese quesadilla and fresh grilled cod fish with steamed vegetables. The cod fish was cooked... More

It is incredible that we had to wait more than 1:20hrs for a mofongo, and the server just apologized and said "I apologize, I had to apologize to all of the tables" I am a Puertorrican and work in the service industry and I have to admit that the service here in this island sucks!!!!!!! Food is not good, don't... More

Went with some outside of town visitors for lunch. When we arrived there was no greeter, although the restaurant was relative empty it took some time to get us seated. The food was not more than OK nothing we ordered really stood out. Overall not the best lunch experience. I am not considering it as an option for another business... More

Positive: -Went to Caramelo with an out-of-date coupon but the discount was fully honored by the manager; thus, good customer service; -Bold latin flavors -Really Nice Atmosphere Negative: -Sushi Bar. If the main theme of the restaurant is Latin-Fusion,Why the Asian-Japanese sub-theme? It's confusing for the customer.
