We happened upon this restaurant looking for something filling after waking up our first morning in San Juan. It definitely feels like a tourist trap restaurant, but it was super tasty and we didn’t regret going there! I ordered paella and my friend ordered some...gambos de ajillo. The service was very attentive and excellent. However, if you’re going for a traditional, authentic flavor, then I would suggest trying somewhere else. But this is family friendly-perfect if you have kids or wanting a more cost effective meal that’s still delicious with plenty of options.More

Not far from Plaza Las Americas, Cayo Caribe is located, tapas were really good as well as the cocktails. Service was excellent.

Stepped in for lunch when the recommended restaurant had a wait. Glad we did! The food was good. We had seafood trio of tacos- a shrimp, a crab & a fish. All delicious. Tacos are with flour , not corn. Filling was fresh and cooked...properly. The best, though, was the mojitos. I thought I didn’t like mojitos because they were always too sweet & too sour. These were FABULOUS! We had a second round. Kept trying mojitos around the island looking for something as good. Casa Bacardi came in second...TRY THEM!More

My wife and I visited Cayo Caribe on the recommendation of our hotel and loved the location and the food. We ate at an outdoor table and enjoyed people watching as we ate. The service was excellent. My wife had the Mofongo and I had...Shrimp Gumbo. Both were excellent. We also had some of the best Sangria we have had anywhere. We would highly recommend the Cayo Caribe when you are in Old San Juan!More

We came here for the sea food, and were not disappointed. The Mofongo with garlic shrimp is pictured, and it was fantastic. Our server was just the right balance between helpful and not too overbearing. Great meal.

The food and drinks were good. While we were a large group, it was seriously crazy that lunch took over 2 hours.

We visited today after finding this place on trip advisor. Our waiter Osvaldo did a great job guiding us through the food and making it easy to adjust the fish and shrimp tacos to the kids. He did well with speaking English and translating too....Friendly and kind to the kids. The wait was looking. But worth it....cuz The crazy shrimp was awesome. The fish tacos and normal shrimp tacos were great too. Quite filling.More
