Food was delicious with shareable portions. The best food we had during our visit to PR. Only two staff working on a busy night. Long wait for service.

We ordered the Puerto Rican cheese, ceviche and skirt steak mofongo. It was all delicious! Our favorite was the ceviche-best we’ve ever tasted.
Service was timely & Juan was a fantastic server-very personable.
Local, friendly, authentic place but, don’t expect a fancy/beachfront ambiance.

Look, it’s kind of a hole-in-the-wall. The first time I went with coworkers, one of them was extremely reluctant, just because it doesn’t look like much from the street. I wanted to try it based on the reviews.

At least during Covid, they only have six tables inside, so you definitely will want to make reservations. Even though the atmosphere isn’t like what you might get across the street at one of the beachfront places, the food and service more than makes up for it.

I have had the grouper-stuffed avocado a couple of times, and it could be the best fish on Ashford Avenue in Condado. This time, I went with my wife and a couple of coworkers. My wife had the churrasco and it was also delicious. The service is spot on - relaxed, but attentive.

I almost don’t want to recommend the place, because then it might be harder to get into. However, this kind of food and service should be rewarded. I do highly recommend Waiter’s, and think you won’t regret going there.

The reviews at this place were so great we decided to try it. We got the #1 best seller on the menu, the skirt steak rice and it was okay. A little dry so we need to add ketchup. Mojitos were okay, a little watered down. The service was excellent! Super attentive and wonderful energy! Otherwise the food was just okay. With the reviews I saw, I think this place is overrated. The food didn’t match the $200 bill for our group. Def other places that are worth that.

Our favorite place to eat while we were in Condado. We didn't't think much of it when we walked past it the first time, but once I started looking for a dinner spot and reading reviews, it was clear this place was worth a try! Happy to say that it did not disappoint. It was not only the quickest sit down meal we had, but the most delicious! Everything was delicious, but the stand outs were the fried pork chops, the crab mofongo, and the alcapurrias.

I read the reviews before coming here and I thought I’d give it a try. Best decision I’ve made. This restaurant was amazing, my favorite restaurant during my vacation. The staff were friendly and helpful with recommendations. I liked that it was a small restaurant, it made it more intimate. The drinks were perfect, the food was phenomenal. I would definitely come again.

Juan was absolutely AMAZING! He called to see if we wanted to move our outdoor reservation indoors because the wind was pretty high that night. The entire time we were there, it felt like we were VIP. He was extremely accommodating and attentive. Anyone looking for flavorful, authentic Puerto Rican food, I highly recommend this establishment!

We went there for Valentine's day with a reservation. Outside seating is limited (2 tables). I ordered ribs and mashed potatoes, the potatoes were from a box. My girlfriend got shrimp and steak. She enjoyed her food. Mussles were delicious. Our server was fantastic. Food was just severely subpar for the price
