Had a fantastic dinner here with my wife, parents and daughter. We all shared the red snapper, a salad, and a quesadilla. All the food was great along with the excellent service from our waitress Ismar. My favorite thing was actually our side of rice...and beans! The beans were amazing.More

The Carabali Rainforest experience was amazing. From the moment we made the reservation everyone was so nice and helpful. Our horse excursion with Anthony and Angel was beautiful and so fun. They made sure everyone was enjoying themselves even the small kids. Our server Roxana...was super sweet and checked in on us constantly and the food was DELICIOUS 😋. We were a group of 18 and they were able to keep up with us. Great job, highly recommend.More

I know the place was packed but last Saturday, June 12 at noon there were enough servers unlike other places that are understaffed. The hostess tells us, "the waiting period is 30 minutes the most, and it could be even less because we're about to...open another area..." , so we started to wait while a family of four was being seated. Thirty-five minutes later, nothing happened so I asked the host about our status(we noticed that there were about 5 tables ready by then), and the hostess told us we had to wait another 30 minutes. I almost gasped and then another hostess came by and told me that we were just next(????). Ten minutes later we were seated; meanwhile, the family of four was still waiting on their drinks as a group of 3 servers were chatting near the bar. We looked at the menus and there was not too much variety; besides, prices were too high regardless that this is a tourist area, the item didn't impress us much. 20 minutes later we were not approached yet by any server and THEN we watched the family of four getting their drinks so I said, that's it. We stood up and left.More

The steak, shrimps and even the desserts are delicious. I had a skirt steak that was cooked to perfection and added some shrimps in criollo sauce that brought the meal to the next level. The waitress Maria T. recommended the piña colada mousse and WOW...I really enjoyed it. Good food and service.More

Ended up eating here after we went to the Luquillo Kiosks and decided to eat elsewhere. Close by and had good reviews. It was hard to find as it was already getting dark and it's on a poorly lit road off the main routes. It's...actually within the Carabali Action Park where you can do activities during the day. So there were horses and other unusual things you wouldn't expect when searching for a restaurant. But the restaurant itself is outdoors and lit with cute overhead lights and had a nice vibe. Menu was varied and food was good. I had the cheeseburger and it was huge and yummy. Service was a little slow but we arrived very late so that may have been the reason.More
