We reached around 2 PM to Marcelo's. A courteous valet attendant took care of our car. We went without reservation and were rapidly seated. I chose the Pazo de Señorans Albariño 2012 for $45. It was cold and delicious. Bread was served. I had a Rodaballo (Turbot) in alcaparras Caper sauce with yuca. For dessert a Creme brûlée. Excellent food... More

Marcelo is very nice, people are friendly, not too expensive, if you are in Caguas it's a good place for lunch or dinner.

The food was good but it was not to die for. The people were nice but the service was pretty slow. If u want a sit down place to eat I would recommend it.

Great food served in a pleasant atmosphere. Service is very good. Of course the time is very important. I went for lunch on a weekend and we barely had to wait for our food. Menu has a variety to choose from and the prices are fair. This is one of those places you would definitely go back to.

Went to Marcelos on a weekday (wednesday). The food and the service were excellent. Our waiter was very friendly and allways in control. I had the filled chicken breast (manchego cheese and cured ham). Our party was well served. When in Caguas - you need to eat here. Recomended
