Saw good reviews about Casa Dante on google map, maybe not the most believable but in this case it I'm glad I took the leap! My fishing buddy and I walked to this place early on a Sat eve and found the small dining room empty. Hmmm. But the space was inviting and the waiter friendly, so we sat down... More

This is a small, simple restaurant, not some fancy place, but the food is fantastic. The best churasco and tostones in PR. They also have valet parking which is big plus.

The first authentic Puerto Rican food we had on our trip was Casa Dante. We loved the sangria, empanadas, and mofongo. Our waiter was great and offered multiple recommendations that we were very pleased with. The empanadas aren't what you think of in terms of a pastry but were so good we fought over the leftovers.

My family went there yesterday. There were four of us. Each of us ordered a different meal and each of us thought it was the worst meal we had ever eaten!

Great food, great service, Great atmosphere what more can you ask for. Felt more like eating in someone's home than a restaurant. and the staff was so friendly and accommodating that it will be my family's first stop when we go back to Puerto Rico.

Great food and really good sangria. A little on the pricey side compared to some of the nearby restaurants but well worth it.

I have been eating here for years. Mofongos are great and the other dishes are great too. This time I came with a client. We started with cold Medallas and then wine. For appetizer fried cheese and corn fritters. For dinner they followed my recommendations and order the sea food stew with cassava mofongo, fish with criollo sauce and I... More

Personal attention by the owners, gives your lunch an extra touch. This was a lunch with fraternity brothers. The owners gave us a room in the back, were we were royally served. Delicious Caribbean food in a quaint location, close to the ocean and the airport.
