Overview

Quote:
The people here are extremely nice, friendly, and helpful, even to complete strangers. My partner came down with diarrhea, abdominal stomach pains, and had temperature overnight. At my suggestion, we tried going to a medical clinic to see a doctor on a drop-basis. A woman started a conversation with us in English while waiting in line to speak with the receptionist. She informed us this is the wrong clinic, as we wanted a general practitioner. She suggested another clinic, walked us over, talked with the receptionist, my partner registered and pay the fee of APR30, knew the doctor who appeared and talked with him, motioned my partner to come into his office, and cut through the normal wait of the...Read More

We walked around the area and found La Bianca busy with customers eating on the sidewalk and inside. We liked the fact that this place is actively busy with customers, a good sign. The atmosphere and attitude of the staff was friendly, service was good, the food good-fair.We found a table on the sidewalk and ordered a complete salad, Hack fish in a creme sauce with mixed vegetables, a hamburger, red wine, water Sprite Zero, and flan for dessert.The salad greens had a bitter taste so I didn't care for it, the fish was first grilled, had a burnt taste and somewhat too salty, but otherwise tasty. The hamburger was tasty, the flan like at many other places was overcooked.Wednesday-...Read More

Pizzeria San Jose is a nice restaurant with three other branches throughout the city, serves salads, sandwiches, desserts, as well as pizza. We spotted this place in the evening filled with people after we already had dinner, and came by for lunch the next day. The air-conditioning works wonderfully well here and a welcome to the rather hot climate here. The service was good, someone who spoke limited English came over to be our waiter. We ordered Limito Completo (steak sandwich with ham, cheese, fried egg, lettuce, and tomato on a roll, which serves two people) for ARP15, a large orange juice with ice ARP5.50, lettuce, tomato, onion, egg salad ARP5, tea ARP3, their own fresh baked petite croissa...Read More

Cafe Bar Don Angelo

Restaurant

Quote:
Cafe Bar Don Angelo was recommended by a member of the hotel staff right across the street from our hotel as having good home cooking. The indoor seating had patrons smoking inside, so we sat outside by the sidewalk. There are other sidewalk businesses distinguished by different colored tables and chairs. We ordered Deshuesado-a-la-crema ARP14 and Primavera/Jamon y Queso ARP7.50. Cash only. Daily 6am to 2am, no alcohol served 5:30am to 10am.
