It took us a few tries before we actually found Cafe de la Plaza, but it was worth the effort. Park in the lot below Palmanova Plaza, face the ocean and walk down the path to your left across the street. It's a little way down the path - bear to the right until you see the place on the left.
We had seen the restaurant menu described as 'Caribbean fusion'. We don't really know what that means, but the food was excellent. Our very first mofongo was an unexpected treat - tasty! I decided to forgo my standard baked potato for rice and beans. Turns out rice and beans are a staple in Puerto Rico. Folks at the Cafe make an outstanding version - the best of the several other restaurants we patronized during our stay. Service was excellent - prompt, responsive, and genuinely friendly.
Cafe de la Plaza feels like a family-operated venture. We were greeted and treated warmly and felt comfortable there. Paintings by local artists line the walls. We enjoyed Cafe de la Plaza and suspect you will too.
We had a reservation for 6pm, when the place opens for the evening. While reservations initially seemed unnecessary, most tables were filled when we left - and the remainder had been reserved. We suggest making a reservation, especially if you plan to arrive after 7pm.
