Is that kind of place where you go for the food, not for the service. Am from the island, born and raise and i can tell you the food is great. The mofongo is one of the best in town and the also have a good sea food menu. If you like or need a waitress by your side from... More

Recently moved to PR and I've been at this restaurant several times and every time the service is outstanding, and food is very consistent. Typical local PuertoRican food. Arañitas and mofofongo is a favorite. Carne Frita is good as well. Customer Service is nice and food comes out quick! Price is super reasonable. I'll be back!

Too dark for a restaurant, when I go to eat I want to see my food. To begin the menu is green so between the lights and the color of it we needed to use the cell phone. Food was very good and the service also. Have to point there was only one girl taking care of everybody. Good place... More

Not recommended at all. Food take to much time, the order was taken wrong and the waiters was in a bad mood with the costumers. So sad because i love dominican's food places and they are not doing it right.

The service was terrible. As I walked in a waiter opened the door and slammed it. Didn't even bother to look back to see if I was walking in. The waiters asked me to move 3 times because I was in their way! How about asking if I needed service or a table to sit at? I ordered food but... More

Okay... Lets start w. something. We had the most amazing server. Food quality is good but the best thing about our night was her service. I left really mad w. management since we weren't able to tip on credit or debit cards. Only cash. So i had to go to a near atm to give the waiter her very deserved... More

I never write negative comments of a place I visit, (as you can see on my Trip Advisor reviews), but this, I just can’t let it go. For the first time I visit El Mofongo Criollo at Escorial Plaza, Carolina, just because I saw good reviews. We (my family) came in around 7:00pm on Thursday, Jan 15. We requested several... More
