If you want excellent service ask for Aliana! She was so attent to details, friendly and profesional. I came with my friends for my birthday weekend and I have to say, that the restaurant was so beautiful with an outstanding view! And the FOOD? OUT OF THIS WORLD. Everything from Live Omelete Station, assorted breads, Pastries, Warm Creamy Cornmeal! All... More

Breakfast & Brunch with the authentic Puertorrican twist. My husband was amazed with the flavor on the Sofrito Pork Hash. Flavor packed pulled pork on a bed of freshly made tostones, perfectly fried sunny side up eggs and cilantro hollandaise on top. Delicious!!! Our server Giovanni Reyes delivered 5 star service and was able to accomodate my request of having... More

$19 for two eggs, ham, potatoes, and toast seemed a bit much to me but hey, you're at the Ritz. Food was well prepared and the service was excellent. Our server even brought us a little bonus dish of farina so we could taste it. Super convenient if you're staying at the hotel.

The breakfast brunch was great. We went at 10am and everything was still hot, clean and there was plenty of everything including a mimosa station. Our server, Jose, was very friendly and took good care of us. We enjoyed sitting at the terrace and enjoyed Giovanni’s stories about PR. All the good reviews that I have read about this restaurant...

I had a business breakfast with my colleague at Mares and the mimosa buffet was absolutely perfect, from preparation to presentation, very pleasing and complete. We were perfectly served by our waiter, Jaimme. We especially enjoyed the corn bread amenity, the mimosa station, the coffee special of the day and the personalized omelet station. Chef Mike, Chef Frank, the famous... More

MARES RESTAURANT is, by far, our favorite breakfast restaurant ever. They welcome you everytime with the same pleasure and same quality. Replicate the same great experience is a treat. From the beginning Bertha, the manager, stays aware of the tiny details, so everything is in place and order. The "a la carta" and the buffet breakfast menu are all you... More

For several years had stayed at the Ritz Carlton SJU with wife, family, etc. and visited Mares Restaurant during my stays. So, it is time to memorialize experience lived this far. It is important to highlight that this would be my first public review ever. Food in restaurant is great (probably not so different to other places) but service, is... More

The food here was for breakfast only. The food was awesome, along with the guava and papaya mimosas! The staff was the best in every way. We had Giovanni and he was the best ever. I can't describe how polite and accomodating he was. I mean it. He was the best!
