I go to Casa del Chef every visit - usually twice per year and sometimes more than once per trip. The bbq lobster is delicious, as is the chicken, the rice and blackbeans and the blackbean soup. One particular waitress remembers me all the time and I am sure appreciates the new faces I bring with me.

A marvelous restaurant. During the day the building is a cooking school, and at night it becomes a restaurant. We ate there twice. One night I had grilled langouste and my husband had Cuban roast pork; the second night we had red snapper and chicken. Food and service were both excellent; the servers are attentive but not intrusive.The staff was... More

This is a great place to eat and food is delicious. Staff is very friendly and spoke very good English which makes things a lot easier if you don't speak Spanish
