The waiter and I believe owner were amazing! They were so friendly, which brought the meal off to a good start. But then the food was excellent as well. I would definitely recommend to go and will also visit again.

We had a great visit to Condal our last night in Puerto Rico. We ate exclusively from the Tapas menu. Condal has a wine (Finca Azaya) that is made with a grape variety that I'd never had before. It was fantastic for our meal. They didn't have their full desert menu so we had creme brulee instead of tres leches cake but it was delicious. We'd go back they next time we are in PR.

Overall a very good experience Food was very good We enjoyed empanada app and the Tomato toast. Octopus a little tough but 2 large piece Maybe nature of the beast

Excellent entrees included stuffed chicken and bone in veal chop with cheese and ham on top Superior French fries

Desserts homemade were also up to par

It’s on loud side Disappointed rooftop dining closed to private party Suggest reservation Busy area on weekend , depending on where your coming from suggest give extra time to get there due to traffic

Excellent service was impressive

Dinner for 4 with 2 mixed drinks, several soft drinks, 5 small plates, 4 entrees (3 were the chicken) and 3 desserts was $245.

The seafood Paella is delicious. We also had the fish casserole. The Pork meat dish is also to die for. In Puerto Rico, they know how to prepare pork!have any rum cocktail to go with dinner. Service was excellent.

Our experience was just ok. We weren’t allowed to the roof for a “private event” and the food was just very basic and not that great, not horrible but not great.

The food at Condal Tapas was wonderful....but the service was unacceptable. Every restaurant has a bad night and this may have been one for Condal Tapas. The employees were helpful and tried to make up for the extremely slow service. But when you wait over an hour between finishing appetizers and being served you meals, it is difficult to be pleased. We may return because the food was good, but not sure.

Literally one of the best Spanish restaurants I’ve been to, and without a doubt the best outside of Spain. The paella was divine, and the owner super friendly, humorous, but professional. Highly recommend. Try the Crema Catalan, and you might think they do creme brûlée better than in France.

The service was great and the ambiance was perfectly fine, but the seafood paella was *very* salty and overpriced.

Responded on February 20, 2020

Im sorry that you did not let us know that you felt that the paella was Salty. So we could do something to correct the problem. Yow were at the table 3 people and you ordered a Paella for two ($46.00) with calamari , clams , mussels , shrimps ,gambas ( small langostines), and pieces of Grouper. I am very unhappy that you did not let me know. That you were not happy, Thank you for your review.

Great service, nice environment. Despite the name, would not describe this as a tapas restaurant - you could order multiple appetizers if you wanted tapas style, but really there are just appetizers and entrees.

Spanish cuisine jewel in the heart of Condado. Amazing ambient, superb service and excellent food. Our server suggested a great Ribera del Duero wine, along with the perfect tapas combination of manchego and jamon de bellota and grilled octopus. Main courses did not disappoint.

We were a party of 7 on Jan. 9th. We were warmly welcomed and given our choice of seating areas. The service was fantastic and the food was delicious. Paella and garlic shrimp were the favs. Yaya, the owner, was gracious and amazingly friendly. Great spot for a group!

Amazing service, staff, and owner. He is passionate about his place and you can tell. My girlfriend is a pork aficionado, and she excitedly exclaimed, “best pork ever!” (Her southern relatives are probably upset.) The flan was better than mi abuela. Highly recommend!

Solid experience. The manager was very helpful and accommodating so 5 stars on the service. The food could have been a bit better. For example with the secreto ibérico I would recommend that they season the pork earlier in advance so that the meat is more evenly seasoned. The tostones de pan needed a sauce or something to liven them up a bit. The camarones al ajillo were great though. Excellent flavor.

I think they may have had an off night. The waiter was distracted and kept forgetting parts of our order. The atmosphere wasn’t inviting or friendly—we didn’t feel welcome. But the food was excellent especially the pulpo.

Lovely place. Try to sit upstairs if possible. Food was very good, but they were totally overwhelmed by the busy time of the year. Several items on the menu were unavailable, and 2 HOUR wait between appetizers and entrees. Credit the Manager for recognizing the situation and doing everything possible to help (and empathize) with our situation.

Fantastic meal! Everything was great, service was attentive ! We stuck mainly to the tapas and enjoyed all our dishes- empandillas, pulpo were highlights! The lobster and shrimp risotto had an entire lobster tail and we split it among 4

Made early reservations for Christmas eve. The waiter was knowledgeable, interesting and funny. We enjoyed many great plates and drinks. Since we went on a holiday, they were fully booked for later slots, but the restaurant is beautiful with a great outdoor space. Unfortunately for us, we were not able to enjoy the outside patio. Will definitely return.

Close to the Condado Vanderbilt and La Concha ( 2 blocks), delicious Spanish Tapas. The food was delicious!
We dined upstairs and there was a lovely guitarist playing while we dined. Grilled vegetables, cheese board, grilled octopus, tostones were hits with us. Great food and great value
