That rest. It’s supposed to be a Mesones of Puerto Rica chain, so they are approved by the government as authentic Puertorrican restaurants. After looking for different places to eat, we ended up at the Hotel Restaurant. They actually have 2, Iguanas and Starfish. We only try the Starfish one on Friday. They gave us a table but didn’t give us any menus until 10-15 min passed since we were seated. I ordered Breaded Shrimps with Cassave Mofongo (Mofongo de Yuca). My wife got some Yaucana chicken breast with rise (arroz mamposteao). After waiting for almost 30 min. they came up with our plates (the rest was almost full so the 30 min. wait did not bother us at all). But here come the GOOD PART (pure sarcasm here). My plate was COLD as COLD YOU GET! My mofongo feel like it was taken out of the freezer. When the waitress or manage don’t really know who he was, came up to me I told him to touch my plate, so he can feel how cold my plate was. He decided to take out my plate to warm over again. After waiting for most than 20-25 min I went up to him again and told him to cancel my plate. I was furious. They gave us some nachos, but I did not want any nachos. They even went on to offer some desserts, but I was in NO mood for a dessert. We figured it out, that they cook like 20 or 30 mofongos and put them on the fridge so they can reheat the food when ordered. That no FRESH FOOD from, If I wanted reheat food I would go to Chili’s or Applebee’s. If you want a really good Puerto Rican food in Fajardo, GO ELSEWHERE but avoid the Starfish rest!!!
