“Mr Bean..we love you”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

This was our fourth trip to Puerto Rico and my son was more excited about seeing "Mr Bean" than anything else....so within an hour of getting there we were eating at Mama Pino's and sure enough Mr Bean remembered us again. The staff are fantastic...treat you more like friends and can't do enough for you. You never feel pushed into ordering anything and the chef likes to come and say hello and make sure what you have ordered is perfect.
The food is absolutely gorgeous and there is a large choice....fillet steak with mushrooms and onions comes highly recommended...yum yum!
On our last evening we had a table reserved for us and was made to feel extra special (the "we love u" written on the plate was such a lovely touch).
Kamal...thank you so much for the wine...we have opened it this evening to remember what a great time we had.
Mr Bean...we'll be back! Miss you already. Xx

“Mama Pino's for tea, yes please!!”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

My partner and I stayed at the Rocamar apartments and opted for half board, and good job we did too as our evening meal every night was at Mama Pino's!! What a treat!!!
Mr Bean (PR/ waiter) was fabulous making us feel very welcome and always keeping us entertained too! All staff extremely friendly and couldn't do more for us!
The choice of food is very extensive! As we were half board we had a different set menu, although the manager & chef told us we could have anything we wanted!
It always seemed odd to us leaving without paying for our meal, so we would usually stay & buy an extra drink just to pay them and leave a tip!!
It was my birthday while we were staying there and for the evening the guys at Mama's had set up a table specially for me with a birthday banner. They also brought out ice cream with sparklers and sang happy birthday to me! Absolutely made my night! Fantastic!!!
Will definitely visit again on our next Puerto Rico trip!
Thank you Mama Pino's!!

“Made our holiday!”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Mr Bean (the guy out front) caught our attention and made me and my partner laugh from the word go..
The food is amazing we had paella the first night which tasted like heaven on your tongue, and we often walked by and recommended the place to others... We told them that we would be back for our last night and when we got there, they had reserved the table we had sat at for us. Amazing place to eat with amazing service. When i go back to peurto rico next year i know where we'll be eating!! Thank you all so much u really did make mine and pauls holiday special xx

“So good we ate here twice”
Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

It's difficult to decide where to eat each night as there is a huge choice of restaurants at the commercial centre in Puerto Rico, and it's like running the gauntlet of owners trying to persuade you to eat at their establishments. The lovely Mr Bean was very pleasant and not overly pushy so we decided to give Mama Pinos a try. Best decision we made. The food was fresh and delicious and cooked in front of you by the owner/chef. It was reasonably priced for the quality of food. My husband had the chicken fajitas and they were the best we've ever tasted. All the staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for you. We were only on holiday for a week but visited Mama Pinos twice. Will head straight back there next time we are in Puerto Rico
