A small group of us visited this establishment for the first time. We had recommendations from both locals and friends from home. The wait was lengthy, but well worth it. We had a variety of appetizers with all being fantastic! I had the pork dish that was huge. Much more delicious pork than I could handle. I would highly recommend... More

This local is perfect for family to get together. Service was amazing! We try different plates from the menu and we're pleased with them all. I enjoyed white sangria. $$

Great service and legit PR food. The churrasco with majado is delicious. This location is way better than the one in San Juan.

This is my favorite restaurant in Puerto Rico. Food is delicious with that real criollo taste and the customer service is exceptional as well with the decoration of the restaurant make fell like if you go back on time.

Been several times at the location in Hato Rey. On my way to Ponce and I was carving for a garlic chicken "mofongo", which I have had several times at the other location. First, my server wasn't that sharp nor attentive. After a long wait, the mofongo arrived. Good taste but chicken was undercook. I was in a hurry so... More

I had big expectations about the place since it's very famous here in Puerto Rico and is always full! I had Dorado a la Criolla with mamposteao. It was good, but the rice wasn't that savory! I had the same plate at another restaurant and it was much better there! Overpriced, good food but didn't woo me to be honest!

This restaurant has the BEST mofongo that I've ever had. I enjoyed the "Mofongo Cameron Trifungo." Absolutely fabulous! Really large portion--I couldn't eat the entire entree. I chose the tomato sauce--which I asked to be placed on the side. There is also a butter and garlic sauce too--if you'd prefer that. For dessert, I had the vanilla flan while my... More

Took a group of 6 to this restaurant when we visited Caguas, PR. Had 2 orders of sorullitos for appetizers which were delicious. The group enjoyed various flavored mojitos and I had a Bacardi punch. Yummy! My son ordered a mofongo with biftec and onions, his GF and my wife both ordered the pechuga pollo, and my daughter and her... More

Very good Puerto Rican Cuisine, a little on the expensive side. You are basically paying more for the ambience and decor which is NUMBER ONE IN PUERTO RICO. All in all, NO TOURIST SHOULD MISS OUT ON THIS RESTAURANT IF YOU WANT A TRUE PUERTO RICAN CULINARY EXPERIENCE. It's Viejo San Juan's location is Extraordinarily beautiful, even the bathroom is...

It was the first time I've ever been in Raices, even though I always recommend this restaurant to my guest (I work on the Hospitality Industry). I went last Friday at Caguas Restaurant and the food was beyond excellent. My fiancé and I ordered Mojitos, Margaritas, I also ordered Mashed Plantains Stuffed with shrimps and creole sauce and my fiancé... More
