Fried Puerto Rican Cheese
with Guava sauce
Great little restaurant! This hidden gem is a must go to spot. The drinks are amazing and the food is sooo yummy! Definitely get the empanadas, the mofungo and the stuffed avacado, they were all fantastic!
Staff was tentative, kind and there was excellent service all around.
The food was amazing! We ate here twice, because it was the best food in San Juan. I recommend trying their take on ceviche! Yummy!!!! The fried pork in tostones was also delicious! If you’re looking to eat healthy, try the sea bass on the avocado salad. Whooo! It’s tasty treat! Service is excellent!!! Don’t miss out on a meal at the Waiter’s Gastro Bar, while in PR!
The best authentic food in Condado! Juan is the best. Thank you!!
Nice, small place with authentic local food. The stuffed tostones were awesome. My wife had mofongo with beef steak; the meat was a little dry and tough. Good flavor though. Liked the ambience
We waited over an hour for appetizers. Then when we finally got our main courses the food was just ok. We told the waiter to keep our drinks coming needless to say we only had one
I must say this I don’t write a lot of reviews but this little place deserves it !!!! Is a hidden gem in El Condado !!!! Javier and Ann are very nice and attentive and the food was great the best we had so far since we been here . I highly recommend it don’t pay attention to all the negative reviews everything is done at the moment we had the mahi mahi tempura omg it was perfect !!! I had sancocho and my husband the fry fish it was outstanding very very please 💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕
The food and drinks were Amazing . I had the spicy crab , skirt steak with mofongo
Girl’s trip vacation
Clean … good food … excellent service… great night♥️
For the most part good
We ate outside and had on their patio/deck. It is right in the street with heavy neighborhood traffic. Strong smell of the street sewage and car exhaust. We had the Chicken and Rice and the Skirt Steak. The rice was very flavorful but the chicken was very bland. The Skirt Stake had a great marinade with just the right amount of char from the grill, it tasted great. The unfortunate issue was that the steak was tough and chewy. Very average for a place we had higher expectations. I would not choose this restaurant again.
I really enjoyed my meal at Waiter’s. The food was great, came out quickly and the service was excellent. Will definitely be back when I make my next trip to San Juan.
Muy buen lugar. La comida exquisita, servida con muy buen gusto y el ambiente muy agradable y acogedor. Definitivamente volveremos!!
This is my favorite place to go in Condado! I love the Avocado Stuffed Shrimp!
I have never been disappointed. The Staff are so friendly and welcoming. I always feel I'm coming home when I go there.
I loved the atmosphere. Great music playing. The food was great! I orders the crab meat mofonogo with the creole sauce. Very tasty. Bare Knuckle old fashioned was excellent
Downfall the service was very slow, the restaurant is very small maybe about 8-10 total tables. You need to make a reservation. There were 2 men working the whole restaurant & bar. Definitely a must visit when in town.
We found this little place right across the street from our hotel. The local food was great, the drinks were awesome and our server was very helpful. We went for dinner there twice in our 5 day trip.
The food was good and the service was good but a little slow due to staffing. We sat outside and it was lovely. We will go back.
The food was amazing and so authentic! Drinks were great as well. Would definitely go back
They had to be under staffed because one waiter for all the tables. The host made us stand outside but then random people selling flowers would just walk in without permission while we are eating. Drinks subpar and food even worse. Highly disappointed with the rating they have. Would not go again and didn’t follow my notes for birthday dessert. Never again
Last minute reservation, waiter (I forget his name) was really great and patient with us as we were very “hangry” lol nonetheless the drinks were amazing and the hot sauce is second to none, honestly try it if you really love hot sauce!! They are also the rice Gods, it’s just as good as my mothers if not better! This place makes really good sauce make sure to try the pink sauce (ketchup/Mayo/garlic)
A Little underwhelmed with the food and service. Felt alittle ignored while others were given special attention
One of the beat restaurants that we tried . Even booked a second dinner here . It doesn’t look like much outside but inside it’s very nice and has a date like atmosphere.
The food and service was phenomenal
Sangria was strong and very tasty
Absolutely go here !!!!
Wasn’t what it was made out to be. Not terrible, but not amazing. Would be better suited for lunch.
The food was exceptional like the last time we went 2 yrs ago.
Food was not great. Took 1 hour to get served. Expected more from a place that requires a reservation and then takes an hour to serve my food. Not worth the hype.
Excellent food that was reasonably priced, but service was not so great.
We had the crab mofongo and skirt steak mofongo with the fried cheese and guava app. Everything was prepared well and delicious. We were seated outside, which faced a side street loading dock, so noisy and not too visually pleasing. The waiter was very nice, but not to be seen much due to his being busy with inside customers. If we needed something we had to hope he was coming to serve a new outside table, or go inside ourselves to ask for what we needed, like more water on an 88degree night or a second round of drinks.
Not a fancy place but OH SO DELICIOUS!
Worth every penny
Will be back!!!
Great food and service
El servicio siempre es el mejor y la comida a otro nivel!!!
Doesn't look like much from the outside - like a fast food place. Don't judge it by that. Bottom line, the service was brutally slow. About an hour or more before we served. I had to ask the status of our order several times. The good news is, in the end when the food finally arrived, it was very good (meat paella). The outdoor patio isn't very attractive. But it does give you a nice view of the area.
The food was excellent. The service was excellent. It did take almost one hour for our food to arrive at the table and it was very warm inside.
Food, service, drinks were amazing.
Absolutely perfect dining experience. Our Waiter Juan was fantastic! The food from start to finish was amazing. One of the best meals we had on the island and an absolute must for when we come back!
You gotta try the mango or passion fruit Sangria!!!
Enjoyed the staff. Professional and friendly. Good food & drinks!
Javier and Juan service was great! The Mojitos were really really good. Must try the ceviche. The negative side was that the rice was undercooked and the food about an hour or more.
Overall in line with current prices on the island even outside of Condado. The ceviche while good needed more variety and why in Bourdain's name would you put a cold avocado on a bed of warm, bland mashed potatoes and then fill with ceviche? The skirt steak mofongo was on point though!
Our waiter was very knowledgeable and made great recommendations. The food was great and priced well. Would definitely return!
