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

Great place with good plates and wine. It's in easy location in a north of Caguas Town and so close to the hayway and number one road. Have to be early beacause is always pack inside and the parking is not to big. Great place.

We had a business lunch with a group of 10 people. The wait was less than 10 minutes. The Restaurant atmosphere is good but the food was amazing for the price.
