The bar tends to be very crowded and noisy although the staff is very cordial and the service is very good. As to the dining area, it is good as well as the service. The food leaves a bit to be desired. I question if the fish is fresh although they insist that it is. I recommend the prime rib... More

The Location (banking district in Hato Rey) for Los Chavales was ideal, especially for City People like us. The Decor and Ambiance in this restaurant felt as if you were actually in Spain. The Service was exceptional and the Food was incomparble to any we have ever had on the Island. The Price was reasonable, especially for the service and... More
