The food is good but the wait time....

Would have gave this restaurant 5 stars but the wait time was crazy! During the wait was not checked on by waiter to see if any thing was needed. But the food was delicious

This seemingly local eatery on the main thoroughfare in the Condado area has an engaging front man who was happy enough to portray the virtues of the restaurant's local fare. Unfortunately, the delivery was significantly less so - food was stodgy and lacked flavour - which was a big disappointment to us. Would be hard pressed to recommend based on... More

I can only comment about breakfast. After having a rather pedestrian bacon and eggs we never went back for lunch or dinner. I also wasn't impressed with the banter between the bartender and the waitstaff during the entire time we were there.When service is slow, watching and listening to them trying to impress the guests is not appropriate in my...

I frequently go here. Wait staff and bartenders are some of the sweetest guys in San Juan. The food and drinks are good (B+ or B) and they are a great value for the cheap prices. Music/Entertainment is usually pretty good too on the weekends. Great breakfast spot.

This was right across the street from La Concha resort and has a much better breakfast for half the price. I love their oatmeal (different than stateside version as its much creamier) that was slightly sweet and topped with cinnamon. Eggs, fruit bowl , french toast all eaten in our group were devoured. What staff was attentive and friendly. We... More

If you're looking for a taste of local cuisine, be sure to dine at Cafe Angel in the heart of San Juan. You will NOT be disappointed! Mofungo is a very popular local dish. Don't look it up until AFTER you eat it! It doesn't sound very appetizing, but it is delicious! Several friends suggested I try the mofungo at... More

Their coffee (cafe con leche) was very yummy and worth going over there just for that! Good location to people watch if you can sit on the covered patio area. The breakfast featured eggs, which were pretty good. The pancakes weren't my favorite though, but my husband liked them.

Location is excellent across from LaConcha. Bryan the bartender makes a great mojito. We ate there several times and everything was excellent. Any thing made with plantains is a must try.

I had to stop by this amazing restaurant again during my Puerto Rico visit! The food is still very very delicious and the drinks are great as well!! The bartender is hilarious and knows how to keep you entertained while your masterpiece is created in the kitchen! They give you a lot of food for the prices offered & the... More
