We traveled to Puerto Rico with four other couples and kept getting recommendations for Cafe Puerto Rico so we made reservations and weren't disappointed. The food was great and so was the atmosphere.

Very flavorful food. The queso was not what we expected but was very good. The cheese itself was fried perfectly but we still don't know how we feel about the cinnamon dipping sauce. The yuca mufango was excellent and very flavorful. Service was decent.

Mofongo was delicious. Opened at 1130 and there was a line waiting to get in. We now know why there was a line. Pleased with the food and atmosphere. Other guests shared the same opinions. Will return again.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and the reviews seemed ok. Despite the small room we got a table quickly. There appears to be more tables upstairs for larger parties. We ordered an appetizer of mini alcapurria which were excellent. The entrees were chicken with rice...More
