Had the swordfish and it was great. The risotto was perfect. Service was attentive and polite! Recommend when in Ponce you go there to eat. You will not be disappointed.

You know the Popular Phrase; "One Bad Apple Can Spoil the Whole Bunch". Well that exactly explains why the terrible review. We were having dinner celebrating BIG achievements family achievements champagne, great appetizers, good waiters very polite. But when the main dish arrived two of the steak were not on the correct term. We send the steak back twice, feeling... More

My boyfriend and I went all over in the menu. We had oysters, sashimi tuna, scallop mango ceviche, swordfish and risotto, and more oysters! The food was good not great. A bit over priced for the quantatity and quality. The swordfish entree with chickpea risotto was not bad. The risotto was great, the asparagus that accompanied the plate was cooked... More

Very good food, ambiance and service. Celebrating my mom's 88th B'day at la Cava was a real treat. My mom, not so mobile as she used to be, was made very comfortable with her seating arrangement. We had some very nice asparagus dishes (last day of the asparagus festival) and an excellent chateaubriand, cooked to perfection, all of this washed... More

Perhaps it gets its rep from Ponce's higher class who visits. The service is very good, the food is nice but there may be better choices if you are looking for a seaside restaurant in the Caribbean.

This restaurant has a small seating area outside of the main dining room, which is itself intimate and very nicely decorated in beautiful colors and textures. The menu was limited but more than adequate, and I choose the Bar-B-Q buffet served the in the outer dining plaza, which I was allowed to bring inside to dine with my companion and... More

There was a wait to get in (even with reservations) but they actually had plenty of seating inside. But now I understand why - they try to keep people waiting at the door because the food takes a while to prepare. Luckily, we devoured an entire loaf of bread and a $4 per shrimp appetizer (actually very tasty). All in... More

As I always eat in restaurants this one was actually very good. I had the beef Wellington (Christmas menu) a d it was cooked perfectly. This is a great place to eat at the Hilton if you want something different than pizza and burgers.
