Had dinner at Café del Angel the night before we left on a cruise. It was raining that night so we couldn't make it to the restaurant of choice. The fried chicken was way over cooked - hard and dried out. Have eaten there before on previous trips to San Juan and thought it was OK. We have taken it... More

We had dinner here and was not happy with it. My husband and I had different things and both meals were overcooked and not very tasty. I wouldn't recommend this place.

First of, this restaurant is right across from La Concha resort which is where I stayed so it doesn't any more convenient than that. The food tastes better than average and very affordable. That tres leches desert was amazing. Our waiter was so so nice. The only thing I didn't like is the very loud music that was playing at... More

Right across from our hotel, La Concha. My husband and I went twice and shared arroz y habichuelas, tostones y croquetas de jamon both times. It was delicious and authentic.

If looking for great food, libations and hospitality -Cafe del Angel is the local spot! Our large party of friends and framily enjoyed breakfast and dinner here. The staff was very attentive, friendly, and made us feel welcome! The shrimp filled Mofongo was tasty and unique and table hot sauce was a spicy treat!

We came here at the recommendation of our hotel. We were quickly greeted by friendly staff and seated. The atmosphere was very upbeat and the food was also very good.

I read all of the amazing reviews, and decided to walk a mile to try this place out. It didn't disappoint. It's a small place with great flavor. I had the roasted pork, and my wife had plantains with shrimp lettuce and cheese. Sounds odd, but it was awesome! I can't think of the name of the dish. Next time... More

We stopped here for lunch after arriving at our hotel. The menu and atmosphere looked promising for an authentic Puerto Rican experience. Unfortunately the food was bland and flavorless, like the flavors had been dumbed down for tourists. The mofongo was dry, flavorless, the worst we've ever had. The pernil lacked flavor and the picadillo was excessively greasy-more than typical.... More

We were recommended this by the concierge in our hotel and we were not disappointed. Excellent for traditional Puerto Rican food. The chicken mofongo was amazing and so filling. We enjoyed the place so much we went twice! Go with an empty stomach.
