Fun place recommended by someone at our hotel. Food was tasty. Drinks were decent. Very nice service. We had a great time with the dj who created a fun atmosphere. We had a chicken and rice dish and the skirt steak mufongo. Both were very good but lots of food. I would recommend this restaurant if you want to try... More

I loved Café Angel, we ate there breakfast every day. The staff was very friendly, the menu has something for everyone and the live music on Saturday’s is great. The bartender, Brian was very funny and made great drinks. I would recommend this to everyone visiting the Condado area.

We have ate here two times and both times the food was great. I had the roast pork and the chicken and rice. Both were great. The frozen piña colada is also very good. Service is good and prices are fair. This place is worth a visit if you are looking for island food. Enjoy!

The food was great and staff was very friendly. Best mofongo on the island! Service could have been faster. Definitely going back!

Cafe Del Angel is a great local restaurant and bar located directly across from the La Concha Resort. The food is very tasty across the board. I had the Churassco Mufongo and it was fabulous. The staff makes their own hot sauce that is provided to each table in a Patron bottle. It is spicy and flavorful with just a... More

Friendly staff! I had the canoa which was delicious. I also tried the Mofongo with beef. It was really good but really heavy. I couldn't eat it all. My hubby had the baked chicken and red beans and rice. He enjoyed it. Dinner for 2 with drinks came up to about $30.00. Pretty decent and affordable

I found this place while walking on Ashford ave. The host sweet talked me into dining and I eagerly obliged. We had small talk and then I asked him about traditional Puerto Rican food and he made a recommendation for me. I ordered the rice and peas with fried chicken chunks and sweet plantains. Delicious. I then ordered the fried... More

My husband and I arrived in San Juan late and wanted something local and close to eat. We were staying across the street and were directed to the cafe. There was great live music, open air and a good happy hour. The only down side was that it was very slow and very busy. It truly was local in the... More

I tried the mofongo and if you are an adventurous eater you will probably love it. It is very filling and tastes great. The waiter warned us that we wouldn't like it if we don't like trying new things but it was definitely worth it. Check it out if in the area!
