Classic 80s decor, Okay food

Only had breakfast buffet here. $15 p/person. Not bad with all that was included: scrambles eggs, bacon, French toast, juice, coffee etc. All you can eat. Not sure I would do dinner here though.

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

We went here for lunch and found an average buffet more expensive than ever. Won't be our choice for next year' secretary's week lunch.
