Positive: -Went to Caramelo with an out-of-date coupon but the discount was fully honored by the manager; thus, good customer service; -Bold latin flavors -Really Nice Atmosphere Negative: -Sushi Bar.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.

Food was good but we had to wait around 40 minutes just to take our order. Finally when he took it started making excuses as to why he took long. I don't think I'm coming back..

We arrived late in the afternoon. We were greeted by a prompt and efficient valet parking attendant. Once inside, our waiter was Diana, who was a very happy and efficient. The food is local type. We ordered to start the tuna tapas which were very good. I orderd ropa vieja con mofongo. and my wife ordered the breaded chicken cutlet.... More

Excelent for that business lunch or end-of-the-day drink with some appetizers. Parking is valet-only whic I don't love as I preffer to avoid the hassle because their parking is around the corner and up the building (same building as the restaurant but makes up for longer waits). The food is really respectable and it is in a very good location/neighborhood.

Well deserved and complimented place with environment. Service delightful also the best part it's that between servers and bartender they tend to look out for your need and taste. Creating new flavored to enjoy

The location and ambience is ok but the food is inconsistent. Nice place to have a drink with friends but not for the food. Risotto was dry we did have a ceviche that was fine and the servers we had were fine. This is the kind of place where you're never really sure what you're gonna get. Not the worst... More

It is a good restaurant to taste cuban and puertorican food in a well decorated atmosphere. If you compare it to Metropol Restaurant in Guaynabo this one is a bit more expensive for the same type of food. Has valet parking.

Excellent service. We ordered black beans soup and small rissotto buns as appetizers . Exquisite smashed plantains with shrimps a la creole and a beefsteak a la caramelo. Tasteful Mojitos. We recommend it.

My experience at Caramelo was nothing out of the ordinary. Their food tastes ok. The good thing is that you get to order Cuban food. It is not one of those we-just-want-you-to-eat-here-so-we-have-a-plethora-of-options-in-our-menu kind of restaurant. Their plates seem like well thought. The service is pretty good. The parking is not, but they offer valet service if you don´t want to... More
