“Late night food in Santurce”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2011

We were looking for a place to eat a Saturday late night in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Someone mentioned a place called El Camaron, they open until late night. They have plenty of parking in the back and a person who escort you to the restaurant (nice guy). The waitress was a little rude, they had live music that night and some people singing along with the music (that was fun). We order some creole food and they serve us very fast. The "tostones", Mofongo was good, the rice and beans was ok but some in our group order cordon blue chicken. Sadly was a little over cooked (almost burned) and looks like this was a frozen food. They serve a LOT of food, the price was average and our general experience was ok for a late night hangout.

“very good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2011

This restaurant/café is located at the Miramar neighborhood in San Juan. It has the Main offices of the Autoridad de Energia Electrica (Power Authority of Puerto Rico) right in front. Also, it is very close to the Condado area, where most of the hotels are located. It has a private, although small parking area with valet parking. During lunch time this place is usually crowded, but it has a large diner area. It has a large bar area, that I think its busiest during afterhours. The service was very good from the beginning and the the food was on top of our table in no time. I ordered a "chillo a la criolla with mofóngo" (creole snapper with mofongo). Delicious!

We ended up paying around $40 for a lunch for two with a couple of cokes.
