I’m living now for 30 years in Puerto Rico. My wife is Puertorican. I guess I have seen it all, especially after reading all these reviews I knew what to expect. We had recently a Class Reunion from our Swiss Engineer College (ETH) in Zurich. 32 persons made the trip and attended the one week event. We planned to visit... More

It is amazing how you can read review from two years ago, and the review are the same. Bad service, food took over an hour, waiters never check to see how we were doing, food tasted nastyyy. The only positive was the Mayo-Ketchup. Even the water tasted discusting. The exterior looks good. What a shame.

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.

Service was as bad as it can get... and when asked to talk to the owner.. they told me he was... More
