Tasty food, classic dishes, authentic atmosphere. Always a good meal. Easy to park, outdoor seating. Friendly service and clean. I also like the artwork and knick nacks that bring back memories of the real Guavate region in Puerto Rico. Definitely coming back again!

The atmosphere and people are great but the food is average, especially for the price. We have no problem paying the price if the food is great. I ordered the mofongo with the pollo al ajillo, and while it was ok the chicken portion was small for the price. Bananas and a half of chicken breast should not cost 20... More

First and most importantly. .this is a small place, if you don't have the patience to wait, starving or hate rubbing elbows don't bother..TRUST me. We ordered Mofongo w/churrasco (fried plantain w/ flank steak), side salad, white rice & grilled chicken & side of beans. The portion of the mofongo was decent. The hubby & I both shared a plate,...

We have been to this restaurant a couple of times. Went back for our Anniversary dinner as my husband loves their Mofongo's. We arrived around 5 on a Saturday night and it was already busy. We decided to get a drink and wait outside for a table. We were finally seated and everything was great as usual. My husband is... More

We went here with a local couple who are Puerto Rican so we figured, hey, if they eat here, and we were not disappointed. Having never eaten Puerto Rican food before, it was a bit of an adventure. We started with an appetizer sampler which was quite good. Then we each ordered a moron go, having no idea what it... More

Our third or fourth visit. The best Mofongo (plantain dish) for miles. A bit slow, but that is what happens when you order and it is made fresh. The Bacalaitos were a bit to greasy for my taste, BUT they were tasty. The staff was very attentive and pleasant and the place was spotless clean. Located in a strip plaza.... More

I tried the Bacalaitos which were fresh and crispy. I also ordered the steak with chimichurri and arroz con grandiose. Both had great flavor but it should have been on the hot side. I blame this on our waitress who was not attentive to bringing our dinner plates on time. We sent back the heart shaped Valentine's Day mofongo because... More

I was in the mood for something out of the ordinary this evening and since the wife was not joining me, I chose to just find something new. While sitting at the light I pulled up the restaurants near me and Guavate came up. I pulled up their FB page and it had a lot of reviews and a good... More

I went to Guavate today and had a great experience. The staff was very friendly! I have wanted to try this restaurant for a while but it is usually busy (it's that good). We decided to try it even if it was a bit on the busy side and had no issues. They found us a table pretty quick! The... More
