Cilantro Mexican Grill & Cantina

Reviewed By kthomasva - Norfolk, Virginia

Find this restaurant - you won't be disappointed. Off the beaten path down from Outlet mall.

I am still dreaming of the ceviche shrimp tacos. I have been scouring Pinterest to find a decent recipe to replicate. I also enjoyed the black bean soup. Husband was pleased with his skirt steak burrito - large and full of flavor. I asked the owner to surprise me with whatever mojito he wanted to make - and it didn't disappoint, though there was no english translation for the 'white fruit syrup' he used so I have no idea what I was drinking!My only complaint was they used disposable plates, silverware & the sampler was too small for the cost and my taste buds - yum. I know others said the throw away plates, etc... meant it was clean, I look at this as problematic as trash just builds up - it's an island - where are you going to put all this styrofoam and plastic? Wish they used real china and silverware.Locals seemed to flow in throughout our meal, always a good sign. Definitely would return to Cilantro if I find myself in PR again.

Pizzeria Trattoria Italiana

Reviewed By mjhaugland - Rincon, Puerto Rico

So good, we went back a 2nd night

We went to this hidden gem of a restaurant based on a recommendation from our hotel owner. First night we had Caprese salad and split the spaghetti Carbonara. Very large portion, great fresh ingredients and excellent service. 2nd night we got the "Chef" pizza. 4 meats and 4 veggies all layered in yummy perfection. Crisp thin crust. Great place with many different menu options. Most staff speak English and were very friendly. I recommend without hesitation!!

A light, cool meal on a hot day

While visiting the Old San Juan, my husband, our three kids-9,7&1, and i stopped in for light meal in a cool environment. The employees were friendly and very helpful. We had a minor issue on our receipt and they figured it out and were genuinely wanting to fix. It was nice to have great service and friendly employees. We ordered, I ordered a flatbread however I requested that it be made on a wrap instead and they were happy to accommodate. It was delicious as well. We all loved our food! My older boys had PB&J and bananas (one was without bananas), my husband had a chicken Caesar flatbread and i had the southwest flatbread, but again, on a wrap. Delish!

Azteca Restaurante Mexicano

Great food !!

If you want to have fun and good fresh Mexican food at affordable prices the best choice in the area. Is not a quiet restaurant, they have life music and impersonators on weekend so he restaurant can be loud and crowded on the weekends. We celebrate our mom's birthday and had a blast. The prices are very affordable, big portions and variety.

Enjoy excellent food, Service and Relaxing Time

Our family wanted to do something different so we decided to go to see the horse races. This restaurant is inside the building and from over there you can watch the races. It is big and has a wonderful view. Staff is very friendly, attentive and they run the extra mile to please you. The food is excellent and for a very good price too!They have a bar and the drinks are very good too. They can make your own personal request of flavors. We had a very good time there!

Wanting to visit the local for some time. Went and exceeded my expectations. The concept: three floors with different ambiance. The tapas so yummy. We tried: longaniza, empanadillas, the dumplings and the ceviche, last one with pineapple and I can say I love ceviche and this is one of the best I’ve ever eat. Coming back real soon...

Resuelve rápido y rico.

Nos fuimos de turista a los Outlet de Canovanas y después de muchas compras buscamos donde comer un poco fuerte, rápido y buen precio. En él área de comidas rápidas fuimos aquí por comer churrasco, pollo y la Pamperita. Pedimos ensalada de códigos, papá majada y arroz provenal. Con refrescos y agua embotellada. Muy buen servicio, rica comida, buen precio y súper rápido para poder seguir de compras. Bién ubicado y mucho estacionamiento.
