“Don't waste your money here!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

This place is horrible! I had chicken monfongo which was so dry and blah tasting. My friend wanted some vegetables as a side and the server told her "no." Even though they have vegetables in some of their dishes she was not allowed to order them as a side. All of the severs were constantly on their phones, checking their phones and hanging out around the cashier booth. I could not wait to leave this place. At the end our server tried adding on extra drinks to our bill, thinking we wouldn't see it. I caught it and walked over to him immediately and made him correct it. Nice try!!
If you are looking for really good food go to El Jibarito in Old San Juan I found it on a google search and read up on its reviews. Their food is 100 times better and great service as well!!
Seriously stay away from Cafe de Angel!!!!!

“Best Puerto Rican cuisine downtown! ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

Other than old San Juan this was the best Puerto Rican cuisine we tasted throughout our trip. The waiters were very good. It was probably the best service in all of San Juan. We actually went to eat there twice after trying out a couple of places and this ended up being our favorite. The Wait staff wear cool Puerto Rican style outfits and the service was actually pretty quick compared to a lot of other places in San Juan.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

We ate here our 2nd night in town and the seafood tasted very fresh. I guess that's the benefit of being so close to the ocean. Would definitely recommend this to others that are planning a trip to San Juan.

“Great place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

Ate her twice for breakfast. Breakfast was great and reasonable priced compared to the $25 buffet at the hotel. Great outdoor eating area. Staff was extremely friendly. Would definitely come back!
