No restaurant in PR save for a handful has fresh whole grouper. My favorite. Castillo did. It was delightful. Slow cooked on the grill not fried with a delicate criollo sauce. This came with tostones of course which were made to perfection. Not to mention the grouper seviche and yautia soup, both marvelous appetizers. Although I dined alone, the wine... More

SUMMATION: This Restaurant has Served Up a Series of Disappointments. I only go now when socially forced by others. GENERAL: I reviewed this place in detail 19 April 2012 (see review) and nothing much has changed. Also, 14 January 2014 (Breakfast) and 27 December (Holiday Buffet). I will just consider new things or ones I did not address before. NAME:... More

NAME: Castilla Restaurant; Mayaguez Resort and Casino [but everyone still just calls it “The Hilton” (see History)] SUMMARY: This was their Holiday [Navidad] Special Buffet. The Buffet was barely adequate. It was not “special.” Not as good as their regular, ordinary Lunch Buffets of years ago. They are supposed to have a “World-class, international Chef” if so, he must have... More
