"I am glad I listened"

Cafe de Angel was recommended to us by someone I know who has been there. We would have liked to have eaten outside, however there were a few overly drunk patrons so we opted for inside. The place is very dated which I was warned about by my friend. The food and the service were very good. It... read more

One of the best decisions my wife and I have ever made! We both got the Churrasco Steak with rice and beans (she had potatoes and I had plantain). The service was really good, the food was excellent in both quantity and flavor. The waiters were not pushy about alcohol or dessert, but we had both. The fried cheesecake is... More

At the advice of a street vendor, we tried the Cafe del Angel on our first night in San Juan before a cruise. We returned all but one night after the cruise, as the food was wonderful, the mojitos were the best this side of Cuba, and the staff were welcoming and attentive. We had fish, shrimp, pork, and chicken,... More

I had the roast pork and it was delicious. He had the Puerto Rican plate and also loved it. We both had cold beers. We liked it so much we returned for dinner another night. He had the roast pork and I tried the lamb shank which was outstanding. The service was friendly and prompt. The waiter was happy to... More

I saw a good review of this restaurant and thought to try it. The staff was warm and welcoming as we walked in the door. We sat outside so could enjoy the weather but with a shaded dining room which was perfect for us. There is also indoor air conditioned seating. Our waiter, Miguel, was great helping us choose our...

Good atmosphere and great location. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Explanation of the menu was very good as we had difficulty making the right choice of local dishes.

Café de Angel is an good place for basic lunch food. The food was good but nothing special. Service was decent. Deep fried items are very deep fried; probably a little too much; and crunchy. If your in a rush this might be a good place to stop for lunch but there are many better places around San Juan.

In the bustling main street of Ashford Ave near Condado beach, this hole in the wall does not disappoint. Very fresh and delicious mofongo- I had the veggie and my husband had chicken- both great. And you must try the homemade hot sauce! Recommend sitting outside.

We stumbled upon this place for lunch while looking for another restaurant. Food was great, particularly the local dishes. Not fancy, but it suited us very well.
