If you want fine dining - you're at the right place. I used to "treat" myself every now and again. The fine dishes, the fine wines and the fine silver service. It was good to see the younger members of staff performing excellently and dealing with classy customers with class themselves.

We enjoyed a wonderful, quiet meal at LA Cava surround our stay at the Ponce Hilton. The wine selections were first class, any wine aficionado would be in heaven. The food was prepared perfectly, the service was exceptional and attentive This was our second visit to LA Cavaliers and it did not disappoint.

You know the Popular Phrase; "One Bad Apple Can Spoil the Whole Bunch". Well that exactly explains why the terrible review.

But when the main dish arrived two of the steak were not on the correct term. We send the steak back twice, feeling... More

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.
