Got off the plane and went straight here. Great food. The Pork fritas was excellent. Good prices and very good hot sauce.

“Cafe Angel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

We went to Cafe Angel upon recommendation from our hotel concierge when we asked, "Where do we go to get good Puerto Rican food?" this place didn't disappoint. I had the vegetable mofongo- WOW. I was blown away. It is a simple dish with so much flavor, and the homemade hot sauce was amazing. I have no idea what my husbands meal was called, but it was pork and he said it was awesome :) I would go back here if I am ever in the Condado Beach area again!

“WOW!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Cafe de Angel was right across from the La Concha Hotel. Unfortunately during my stay I was sick the entire time so I would get take-out food from this restaurant. Talk about excellent Puerto Rican food and REASONABLE - this was the best pork with rice and peas I have ever had. The portions are large so be hungry when you visit this wonderful local cafe. On the weekend they have a musician who is wonderful...the drinks aren't too shabby either. Roberto, one waiter who works at the Cafe is always accomodating. Ask for him and you will get "extra special" treatment. Everyone there - every waiter - is excellent. I cannot wait to return to have some more authentic Puerto Rican food. THE BEST- bar none!

“Authentic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013 via mobile

I would have given this a 5, but they charged for refills on beverages. The food was good. Service started out a little abrupt, but as soon as the food was served the waiter was very pleasant.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Pork was so tasty. Rice was also good. Ordered a margarita and didn't care for it, but staff is knowledgable about possible things to do in the area. Service wasn't excellent but good. Found other restaurants in Old San Juan that were pretty comparable if not better but I would dine here again.
