Loved the vibe but food was very salty and over seasoned. Good flan.

The dinner we had was AMAZING. Local favorite dishes but prepared exquisitely. The menu was smart and fun. The service was excellent. The restaurant itself is beautiful.

Try the pulpo. The tomato and avocado salad. The fish of the day. The vianda. The morcilla.

It was about $65 / person with appetizer, entree, drinks and dessert. And it was absolutely worth it for the quality of the experience. Will definitely return.

Surprisingly delicious! A very gourmet & creative take on Puerto Rican food. Highly recommend the octopus, pork and churrasco. Beautifully decorated and top notch service.

The view and setting are wonderful. Unfortunately, the praise stops there. The food quality and service do not reflect the steep pricing. Overall, quite disappointing.

Chef Juliana Gonzalez returned to her homeland and has arrived with a bang. Great location in the newly renovated El San Juan Hotel. As great as the location is, it fails to compare against the great food.

Octopus cooked in duck fat, codfish fritters, slow roasted pork, guinea hen fricasé, yellow tail snapper, mofongo; essentially the flavors of the island she grew up in, taken to the next level. All ingredients sourced locally really show up in the freshness of the final product.

Make room for dessert. The Barrilito Bread pudding is the way all meals should end.

The place is too new to be up on Yelp so I'll leave my review here. This was honestly one of the best dinners we have had on any vacation. Just what we wanted - Puerto Rican with an upscale twist and every dish we tried was so stinking good. Not what I expected to find in a resort hotel, to be sure. Kind of blew us away. Loved loved loved it.

This is our first visit to Caña. Very impressed with the level of service and quality of food. The dishes are served tapas style so it's a great place to go with friends. Great way to experience Puerto Rican Cuisine. Can't wait to go back!

The food was authentic Puerto Rican with plates to be shared - our waitress was helpful and guided us through the menu. The venue itself was attractive and overlooked the El San Juan pools. Highly recommend

Wow! Great dinner last night. Our party of 6 ate our way through most of the menu sharing the adventure. Elevated a Puerto Rican cuisine using mostly local products on the level of other local favorites Santaella and Jose Enrique. Juliana Gonzalez's food rocks. And the staff, despite just opening, was extremely welcoming, enthusiastic and caring. And by all means, save room for desserts! (Note that was plural on "desserts!"). There's also a great outdoor verandah with intimate seating that overlooks the resort's Beach Club and ocean. We'll be back!

Tourists should try these succulent creole food to the taste and to the eye. Caña is new and if they keep these effort I´m sure they will win a prestigious position in the local market.

Do not even bother for breakfast or brunch. What a disappointment. Having read about Chef Juliana, I was so excited to dine at this new restaurant. Boy was I in for a surprise. It's basically a typical hotel buffet for breakfast. With so few options for an actual brunch menu, we didn't even bother eating. We did enjoy two mimosas at $35!

Hopefully she's on her A-game for dinner, but I won't bother going back. There are too many other choice out there to waste the time and money.
