Service was slow, really slow. We had to get our own menu, find a waiter, then waited over an hour for our food. The shrimp fettuccini was good as was the shrimp with garlic sauce. We had crab cakes for an appetizer which were really good. The restaurant automatically put a 15% tip on our... read more

Had breakfast here because it was open earlier than 8am. Should have waited. Coffee was poor. OJ from a bottle. Omelette ok, but no cheese as requested. French toast never arrived. Unlikely to revisit..ever. On par with Dennys.

We were told that the french toast was "to die for", but found that as good as it was, the service was extremely slow and the cost was through the roof. We were charged $25+ for two orders of french toast and two orange juices. We waited over twenty minutes for our check as we sat and watched several tables... More

I put a review back in August but I feel the need to warn you. Do not waste your time here. I'm surprised this place is still open when I drove by Ashford this February. If they had a rating like nyc they would have shut these people down. I guess the people that get so wasted come here that... More

I went here for breakfast, lunch and take-out dinner during my last visit to San Juan. The food was good, but nothing special. Our service at lunch was exceptionally slow, but this was the best food (Cubano sandwich) out of the three meals. Note that everyone was friendly, but most of the staff doesn't speak any English. I do like... More

Local food at affordable prices- not too far from the hotel scene. Our food was fine and did the job. But this place wasn't somewhere that I would go to twice. The staff was very friendly and they wore such cute uniforms.

The waiters try hard but can't make up for the bad food. The ambience is severely lacking. With so many other great places to eat I would recommend going somewhere else.

I have been to the Latin Star on previous visits to the area. However, this time it did not seem the same. I went for lunch and the restaurant was not very crowded at all. The service was slow and the food took longer than expected. Although the quality of the meal was okay, there are definitely better choices in... More
