The smoked chicken is their signature plate. It is the only restaurant in the Caguas region that prepares it. Excellent service. I recommend it.

This place was once upon a time about as good as it got in Caguas. That was long ago. It is now a mediocre place for a business lunch. Not great, not bad, just okay. The prices are okay and the service can be okay. It needs a kick in the butt to reclaim what it once was. Many other... More

This was my third time. Just after lunch hour. The service was excellent, so was the Mojito. The food was very good. You can find very good options in the menu that you do not find in regular restaurants, Will probably be back next month.

I'm very passionate about food, because of that I tend to be a strong critic of what I'm served on a plate. I go a lot to this restaurant, meaning that I'm a frequent client, and may I say the food is beautifully cooked. You have to try the paella with tostones. Most of the time we go here because...

Marcelo's restaurant is an ok place to go if you are looking for a fast convenient and on the budget Cuban meal. It is pretty good. Staff were very attentive and kind. I would go again next time I go to my hometown.

Valet parking tells you to give him your car; instead of asking for it nicely and appropriately! Waiters are waiting to take plates away, while your eating!! And they bring you things from other tables to yours. Thank God the Chef is amazing & the Water/Bread guys are sociable!!
