“The worst food and nearly a 3 hours wait to eat, awful!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

If I could give this restaurant only a half a star I would (One star is too high for this dump)
We visited on Jan 4th, 2014 and can honestly say this was the worst dining experience I ever had.
We entered just before 7pm with a group of 5 people, the restaurant was less than half full so it was certainly not overwhelmed with people. From the time we sat down it took over 1 1/2 hours just to get water served to our table. The service is slower than molasses. They leave you sitting unattended forever. We felt like we were on Candid Camera by how long they left us waiting without service. All in all after an awful meal with terrible food,waiting nearly 3 hours to get our meal, and out $150, this place it truly the worst possible choice you could make on the entire Island of Puerto Rico.
Trust me, stay far away from this place, it is as "bad" as it gets, awful food, awful service, the slowest service on earth, overpriced, etc...
My advice if your thinking of trying "El Coche": Park your car on the left side of the parking lot and walk up the 4 story tower to enjoy the view, throw your $150 up in the air into the wind, then go drive down the street to Burger King and you'll enjoy yourself better with a better meal (and you'll save yourself 3 hours of time sitting un served)
To sum it up - "El Coche" is as bad as it can possibly get in dining, no lie, this place is that bad!
It sets a new all time low in bad dining experiences.

“Romantic dinning”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2013

Well located, outside seating, which you had a nice view of the sea. Average service. My food was cooked properly, but my boyfriends steak was not fully cooked. Its a little overpriced. They specialize in seafood, so if you are " carnivorous" this place wil not fit on you .

“Terrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

This place is a dump. The food is bad, the service is horrible (the waiter is ill mannered and acts like hes doing you a favor by just taking an order) and its too expensive. During the day, they have an awesome view, thats it. Stay away from there. What a shame....
