The buffet has everything from hot cereal to omelet . Good price and everything was good. If you want a good scenary and decor you won't see it here.

Recently visited El Castillo restaurant but did not like the food quality. Didnt like the chicken breast or the stuffed mofongo. Fairly overpriced although nice 90's ambience that reminded me of my childhood. Try visiting for the buffet lunch options but skip evening dinning. Won't be back in quite a while.

Good buffet for lunch in a fine dinning atmosphere. Buffet includes a variety of meats, carbs and soup of the day (usually delicious) at a very reasonable price for the offer. Great atmosphere, service and view

No restaurant in PR save for a handful has fresh whole grouper. My favorite. Castillo did. It was delightful. Slow cooked on the grill not fried with a delicate criollo sauce. This came with tostones of course which were made to perfection. Not to mention the grouper seviche and yautia soup, both marvelous appetizers. Although I dined alone, the wine... More
