Super strong colours on walls are festive, but a sensory overload, especially in the morning n for kids. Probably added to the sense of business. Breakfast buffet was basic, food quality ok.

Good breakfast buffet but a bit overpriced for $34; service was slow. Took over 30 minutes to get a la carte omelette and pancakes! Coffee bar offers >20 beverages which was nice but it's $6 for a cappucino and $12 for a smoothie!

Great breakfast buffet - have to get a omelette made by Jeremy. He is great to talk to - so friendly. My favorite waitress was Susanell.

The variety of offerings was great and if something needed adjustments, they were most accommodating. The atmosphere was made even better due to the service we received and the view added to our experience.

This was our second time visiting the Ritz-Carlton in PR, and our experience at Mares was just as bad the second time as it was a year ago. How any restaurant with so many servers can provide such inattentive service is mind-blowing. The food is mediocre at best, and when you mix in the poor experience then one can't help... More

Overall the food was pretty good. The service was a bit lacking on the beginning nights so, I really can't rate this place very high. Most of the time we were here, this place was closed in the evening for private events.

This restaurant is in the Ritz-Carlton Hotel and looks out over the pool courtyard. We ate here twice during our stay. Once for lunch and once for morning breakfast. The buffet is a little pricey at $31 a person, but the omelet chef even has fresh organic eggs and the food really can't be beaten for breakfast. And since the... More

Checked into the hotel and went for lunch. We were so pleasantly surprised by a great staff and wonderful food. Just ordered sandwiches and couldn't believe how the kitchen took simple lunch orders and made them extra special. Loved it.

If I could give this restaurant 10 stars, I would. My husband has dietary restrictions and the chef (Denny) came out to personally discuss some menu options with him. For anyone who has food restrictions, you understand what a gamble eating in restaurants is, and this establishment went above and beyond to make sure my husband was being served food... More

We ate here for 3 mornings at the breakfast buffet. The food was good, the selection was nice but not as extensive as other Rtiz Carltons we have been to. Service was fine.
