“Awful”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

Awful service, super slow, my friends wasted three hours there for lunch as well.

I heard they have to shut this place down for some months because the goverment inspectors found ??? in their grease trap.

!

Avoid this place. Eat there at your own peril.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

I think the food was the delicious, especially the famous FISH TACOS!!!
They were not the best I have tried but they sure were one of the best in Puerto Rico.
I would go back there every time I come back to PR.

“Can't beat La Cuevita!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

This is a MUST if you're looking for good, affordable seafood. "La Cuevita" for locals. Appetizers are excellent. This is the kind of place that is great for everything, a good family dinner option, a nice business lunch or just to share some beers and seafood "empanadillas" with your friends.

“A true neighborhood restaurant with good affordable food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

I usually attend La cuevita, as we call it. My all time favorite is the Marlin Turnover. However, the Fried Dorado IA a very close second in taste. The always have fresh natural juice to accompany your favorite spirit drink.
If you have not been at La cuevita, you ought to try it, you are missing out on the experience.
