Ate here our first night in PR. We were staying at the La Concha across the street so it was a nice alternative to their expensive food. This was our first time eating mofonga and the waiter was super nice about explaining this PR food to us. We shared a Monfongo dish and it was plenty.

My girlfriends and I came to Angel's for lunch and it was wonderful. I ordered the bistec mofongo and it was amazing. We had plenty of mojitos made perfectly by the bartender. I strongly recommend this place for lunch or dinner. The staff was super friendly as well.

We walked by this cafe several times over the first few days we spent in San Juan before a very friendly guy working outside convinced us to finally gave it a try.

I enjoyed it so much I left a 30 % tip both times we had dinner. Oh, my husband went bananas over the fried cheesecake dessert, lol, too rich for me- but he... More

We wanted to try authentic Puerto Rican food. After reading reviews on Trip Advisor that the locals frequented Cafe del Angel, we thought we'd check it out. The restaurant is casual and very laid back. The atmosphere also gave you the sense that you were in Puerto Rico and the food confirmed it. My husband and I shared the steak... More

After being down there and trying three different places for Mofungo, as well as asking locals (concierge, taxi drivers, tour guides etc...) this was the best in Condado!! The mofungo wasn't dried out like others and the waiters were attentive!! They also have a great hot sauce and dressing that come with it that really put it over the top.... More

Didn't know what to expect and the food was very good. I had a plantain dish filled with shredded pork and my daughter had steak. Try the house made hot sauce from the Patron bottle.
