“Awful!!! Worst experience ever! poisoning food..”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

Food was horrible, music too loud, drunk customers, we waited 1 hour to be served and then more than 30 min between each course...the waiters seemed completely off...don't know if they were wasted or exhausted....they gave us the bill of another table. The food was old and taste awful! Hamburgers was disgusting. Fries was anything but home made... In addition to the bad taste, we really realized that the food was old and bad when we went for a walk and my daughter puked all the.nuggets and french fries she had in the kid menu!!!!!! Worst experience ever!!!!

“Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

The executive Chef.Christian was amazing. My husband and I spent our anniversary there. Christian was able to cook for us right on the spot, and it wasn't on the menu. He definitely went above and beyond. Excellent Service!

“Couldnt be more romantic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

Spent a few days at this hotel and dined at Cafe la Plage everyday! How can you beat a table set for you on the sand? Lunch was casual and the food very good - much better than the typical burger and grilled chicken sandwiches at typical beach clubs. The Mahi bites were amazing! And the fries are homemade. Dinner menu was surprisingly quite sofisticated for the casual setting so it was a breath of fresh air to eat great food in abeautiful comfortable oceanfront setting! Try a coconut lemonade -- yummy!

“Im in love all over again!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

I stayed at Cafe la Plage'shotel (the beach house) and dined at cafe la plage everyday! What can be more romantic then dining with your feet on the sand? The waiters were very nice, always willing to set your table at any spot on the beach your heart desired! what a treat! The food was also amazing and they even made a few things to order for my wife as she is a vegetarian. So very nice of them to adjust their menu to our needs! They began to serve breakfast the second day we arrived so we were lucky to be able to experience this new menu as well. I guess everything tastes better when you are dining by the ocean! This is my new favorite spot in Puerto Rico!

“Strange place”

Very good located on the beach, and this only one benefit. Quality of food is below average. Just few dishes to choose from.
