Excellent place. Must GO

We stayed at the Caribe Hilton and received a free Sangria drink coupon from the concierge desk. The inside is very nice and there are couches for the tables in the back. The food was beyond excellent. My GF had a chicken plate and I was able to order and enjoy Mofongo. *Haven't been able to have... read more

Great service. Been there many times, but disappointed to learn that they took the Tri-Fongo off the menu. Also the fish tacos are also out the door. What is going on with the management? Bring it back...

Candied sesame calamari, fried pork belly and tuna tartare tacos made up our appetizer spread. All were delicious and unique! Mario was our waiter and he was very pleasant and knowledgeable. We selected the brisket and mofongo for an entire and while it was good-we weren't blown away. Mario suggested the jumbo shrimp with Lola rice, but had already sold... More

Also visited this restaurant on a recommendation. The setting is beautiful, and we overlooked the water. The entrees were ample and the staff was very attentive.

This was definitely an excellent meal. We had good service, although the restaurant was almost empty so I can't judge on that. The swordfish chop was unbelievably good, as was everything else really. Try the seafood mamposteao if you end up there, its spectacular.

I was here with my family last Friday night. My wife and I ate here before and loved it. Unfortunately, this was not the case this time. Our server (Ale) was by far the least attentive waitress I ever had. It started out that after we ordered, I had to ask for my wine (no biggie...it happens). Next, we ran... More

A friend's suggestion took us to Casa Lolo, which was a short walk from our hotel in Condado. Both the white and red sangria were delicious. We had a coupon for a tasting size from one of the tourist maps. Glad we tried it and then ordered a full-size version. We had an appetizer of the trio of stuffed flatbread,... More

Came to Casa Lola tonight and checked the Tripadvisor reviews only AFTER we were sat at a table. Got worried when I saw the negative reviews. Our experience was FANTASTIC. Got a table overlooking the lagoon (saw 2 turtles frolicking!). Our server JC was excellent, patient, and explained everything very well. We ordered the chicken pinchos and churrasco. Both were...

This restaurant is centrally located in Condado Beach and is worth the visit. The chef greeted us on the way in, the decor is classy without coming off as too formal or stiff, and the staff is very pleasant. The chef takes traditional Puerto Rican dishes and adds an extra "zing" to it; the results are foodgasmic! The mofongo is... More

This place has good reviews so we decided to check it out. What a mistake. It took about 20 minutes to order then an additional 35 minutes for the food. When it finally came the order was not correct had to request for it to be corrected. Also ordered bottle of water, and sprite. No big deal right until the... More
