Armando is an excellent chef. But he has to get the front if the house in order!
You enter and most likely will be ignored, Then you are seated and will most likely be ignored. Then you will order and they will most likely not put the order in correctly.
But when you finally get the food it's worth it!
Armondo Needs to get the TV guy to put his place an order.
Go for the food, not the service. They are nice enough But just do not know what they're doing. Several people walked out while we were waiting to eat.
They do not know what they missed! This is not your ordinary Mexican food!

The food tasted good but this is the slowest dining experience of my life. Nobody asking us if we want any drinks. Half of us haven't gotten our meals yet while the other half are done eating. Silly...

Our party of 4 have tried several resturaunts duringe our 4 weeks on Isla Verde. We all orderedeal, and we inten chicken enchiladas with red sauce, green sauce or mole. They were all delicious! The mole was exceptionally rich, with a complex spicy flavor. Three large enchiladas and a side of rice made up each dinner platter.

The wait staff was attentive and friendly. We ordered margaritas, specifying 'not sweet', with extra lime juice. They came exactly as ordered.

This was a really good meal. We intend to return to try some specials.

If you feel like trying mexican food in the area of Isla Verde, try Armando. The restaurant, owned by a mexican that arrived at PUerto Rico more than 20 years ago, provides you with excellent mexican dishes. Armando is centrally located, within walking distant of Isla Verde fine hotel, and is attended by locals and tourist. The owner cooks the food for you, and spices the food with traditional mexican flavor. Good service and good food, also try their margaritas.
