We only had tapas and wine. The tapas was good and I thought the wine prices were fair. One complaint I have is they should specify what is fried and what is not.

The food was delicious! Service also was good. But the fact that waiter offers you sides like he’s doing a favor comes to $$. Avocado was an additional $6. There was rice and bean with additional charge, however we didn’t order any extra. It was our last night in Condado, and we didn’t want to ruin it asking for clarification.

Overall great experience. The pitcher of sangria went a long way for four. Paella for two is enough for three in my opinion. Really generous portions and tastes great.

We got the cayó sampler. My favorite was the crab cake. The fried red snapper was well worth it. The stuffed mufongo was bomb. I got it stuffed with shrimp and steak. Tres leches was delicious. Definitely stop if you’re in the area. An added plus is that they’re COVID conscious. They do ask for vaccine card so be prepared. 10/10 must try again!

We had the fish croquettes as starters; they were delicious. I had the grouper and my husband had the mahi-mahi. Both were cooked to perfection. I also tried their artisan Puerto Rican rice--it is a little different than usual but very delicious.

There’s a rope stopping anyone from opening the entrance door, it’s all glass so you can see in and they out.I waited outside the restaurant for 15 mins while the staff kept walking by and seeing me out there waiting and they never once even acknowledged me while I waited. Then once seated, over 20 mins to bring me my glass of sangria and over an hour to bring my food. The mofongo was dry, flavorless and the steak tasted more like lamb or goat meat and was salty and chewy. They never once apologized for the wait or anything. Overhyped, expensive and poor service. Worst dining experience ever for me.

We were told the crab tacos contained real crab meat and once we received them was clearly imitation crab meat. Grilled lobster tail undercooked. The waitee changed our crab tacos out for fish and did nothing about the lobster tail but offered us free desert. Very small place. Reservations ONLY. NOT WORTH IT!

Originally was supposed to go to STK, but had to go to this place last minute 1hr. Before closing. Food was delicious, service was quick and amazing. I was walking out the door and realized (3 sangrias in) that I put it was my birthday on the reservation and he said “don’t leave go back in there, don’t leave” and made us birthday shots. I enjoyed my birthday & it was a last minute success. Get the sangrias pitcher, 3 of us each had 3 full glasses for $30 pitcher.

The service was top notch but I wish I could say the same for the food. It was fine but nothing to write home about. The tuna appetizer was tasty fishy and was overpowered by the soy and the red snapper was very dry and had no sauce so I would not recommend that. They seemed to have regulars there so there might be other dishes that are better?

Really not a good experience. From other reviews, it seems like this is a hit or miss kind of place. Definitely a miss for us. Caesar salad to start had lots of brown spots on the romaine. Paella was mediocre with overcooked shellfish, including a couple of big, tough mussels. Contrary to other negative reviews, we had no problems with the service. But, food was a big disappointment.

We loved everything about Cayo Blanco! We ordered the frozen mango drink which was the perfect blend of sweet and strong. We had the fried red snapper and grilled Caribbean lobster tail which were both so good we went back the next night and brought people with us. Cayo Blanco has become our new favorite restaurant when we visit PR!
