Easy to find restaurant with attentive and friendly service. Enjoyed steak Marcelo which was so good and fresh tasting. Flan for dessert was boring, I'd suggest another dessert. Seating was nice and comfortable. Classy decor. Open on Mondays.

I grew up in Caguas since the sixties, moved to the States in 1984, but I go back to the Island at least three times a year. Every time I go home, I have to eat at Marcelo Restaurant! It offers true Caribbean food. I recommend the "mofongo con churrasco" since this is a local dish that combines tender meat... More

It's a nice ambiance but it's too slow in serving the food. We were a group of 15 people and the orders took 1:30 hours to arrive. Also some dishes were nos correctly served. The food was cold but the flavor was good. Ordered pechuga en mantequilla and vegetables. Maybe I will give it a second they

Lived in Caguas all my life, I'm a 51 years old and have visited the restaurant since I was a teenager. Same good food and service. Had recommended it to lots of friends and they have enjoyed it. If you come to Caguas its a must.

We had a family dinner here and I have to say that we didn't have a good experience. The place was not full and the service was very slow, from taking the orders to actually bringing them to the table. The food was not that great. We had heard great reviews but given our experience we're definitely not coming back.

Went with my family of 5 for dinner on a weekend and was warmly received. They have valet parking available. Excellent service, nice food. They have a menu what I call Cubarrican. A lot to choose from. I had the "gallineta rellena con arroz mamposteado", my wife had rodaballo fish, my kids had filete mignon, churrasco, mofongo and rice and... More
