Reviewed April 23, 2012

We were vacationing at Palmas del mar in Puerto Rico and stumbled on a real jewel of a restaurant called Cafe de la Plaza. We were greated before we entered and taken to our table. We found the service to be great and the food was first class. I have been in the restaurant business for over 50 years and this is a well run and happy place to go. All foods were fresh and served hot. (A big plus for this isn't always the case) The owner came over to our table to make sure everything was to our liking. A must go to place.
P.S. They even have courtyard tables. Great job. A+++

My husband and I loved our dinner at Cafe de la Plaza. We were with a large group and the service was still wonderful. The appetizers were my favorite part of the evening. I could have just had those. We had delicious empanadas that everyone raved about, also the salmon honey rolls and fried octopus were big hits with our group. I had Mahi Mahi which was good, although I did not care for the sauce. That evening they had a special with chicken served inside an avocado - a few in our party had that and it looked delicious...I should have trusted my first instinct and ordered that! My husband had the chicken mofungo and really enjoyed it. The only complaint was that it was noisy - but with a group of 14 we were definitely contributing to that!

I go here fairly often with friends and visitors since its smack dab in front of Plaza del Mercado in Santurce. Sometimes it fantastic, sometimes OK. I tend to stick with local favorites like 'chicharones de pollo' - fried chunks of chicken with a dipping sauce. However, if you check other diners having a great time - try to order what they like, it is probably a good chef in the kitchen.
