We ate here a couple years ago after visiting the caves nearby. Back then, it was a small, homey little place. Very inexpensive, but good food. We mostly enjoyed it for the experience. What a difference two years makes. The facility and decor are upgraded and the food is even better, and well-worth the higher prices, which are still reasonable.... More

We ordered the chuleta Kan Kan with rice and beans, French fries, my wife ordered the carne frita with 3 mofongos, A friend ordered the arroz manposteado, my aunt ordered... More

This has got to be the worse experience I have ever had in a restaurant in PR. It was recommended to us by some guy at the caves who obviously is getting a kick back for sending customers over there. The food took over and hour and one of our plates got to the table after the rest of us... More

I am not sure that the people that have reviewed the correct restaurant...We visited the Rio Camuy Cave Park (cavernas), which was a total waste of time but anyway, we were handed a flyer to El Taino on the way in and left the park we were passing right by the restaurant so we decided to stop and glad we...

This place was pleasant from the outside with good, loud music, but the server seemed to have an attitude, and we waited 1 full hour before we left without getting our food. We were checked on once during that time. Never again.

We were given a colorful advertisement for this restaurant at the entrance of Camuy Caves. The outside of the restaurant looked good. Inside was nicely decorated but smelled of Lysol lemon cleanser. Aside from a couple who seem to be family of one of the waitress, my husband and I were the only one there. It went downhill when I... More

We went here after visiting Rio Camuy Cave Park. It was clean. We were seated immediately. Our order was taken quickly and we had a short reasonable wait for our food. Our waitress was very attentive. We both ate fried chicken, beans, rice and a salad. The chicken was very very good. If I'd read the reviews first, I would... More

We stopped because the appearance was attractive. When we were sitted a inexperienced waitress took our order. She didn't know the menu. Besides the menu was not clear enough. 20 mins passed by before our drinks were served. The puertorican sausage was overcooked. After the food was served we had to ask for silverware, napkins and water. After we finished... More
