From the outside you would not get the impression that it is much of anything. Went on a recommendation of a couple returning from Casa Bacardi. If your looking for an elegant dining experience, there are plenty of other options. If you are looking for a comfortable, relaxed, unpretentious, and affordable experience with terrific food, this is your place. As... More

Bar food. Came for a quick bite the day we arrived. Conveniently located across our hotel. Service was attentive and food came in a timely manner. My rice with shrimp was a little over salted, but my husband enjoyed his rice and steak.

But definitely go for the food! Authentic and so delicious. The Paella "for one" is really for one-and-a-half. Mussels were HUGE and tasty. The skirt-steak and rice was muy delicioso!!! All excellent and affordable.

An intimate, cozy restaurant (watch the steps). Across the street from the Vanderbilt Hotel. Their service was good and their beers' cold temperature were always perfect! As a Puerto Rican it is hard for me to find authentic PR food that is better than mom's delicious dishes. At Waiter's I found several outstanding dishes. The rice with churrasco was delicious...

Ok took 7 there to eat. Its a small place so took a while for them to get a table but the food was good. Priced about what you would expect on an island in the Caribbean but good food. Service is slow but expect that here. Maybe 2 hours to eat. But again expect that it was typical.

Large portions, great food, friendly service. This place is a local "hole in the wall" type restaurant. We had the fried mozzarella followed by Mahi Mofongo and everything was great. Highly recommended!

Waiter's is wonderful, good location by the Vanderbilt Condado, watch the steps on the way in, though. I stumbled and landed on my left, could have been far worse. Had the skirt steak, it was medium rare, terrific. Tostones to go with it, washed down with Dewar's on the Rock. My wife loved her chicken wings. Would certainly go back!... More

Ok, so the ambience is not great, but we happened to get the table in the window and they turned up the air for us. Our guy knew his stuff! So many great things on the menu, but went for the avacado stuffed with ceviche. Yes! Skirt steak and mofongo were great! Awesome drinks. Open late
