    Excellent Paella. Wait Staff pleasant and personable. Small, intimate dining with attention to detail. Any request was immediately fulfilled. Beware of similar named restaurant a mile away.

    Turned off by a yellow chain bet the front door, > empanadas 6/10 > cod fish croquettes 6/10 > paella 4/10 seventy overcooked, made all chewy, served rice for 4 people ( we were 2) Not a nice evening. We report the overcooked food, which mostly we did not eat. No reaction. Cayo no longer on my list.

    We arrived early but our table was ready and we were seated immediately. Our server was friendly and attentive, provided excellent recommendations and paced the meal exceptionally well. We shared the grilled Spanish octopus tentacle appetizer (pricey but absolutely delicious and we would get it again for sure!). I had the avocado salad and was not disappointed. The avocado was ripe and creamy, and the rest of the salad complimented it well. We shared the paella for two, which is a misnomer…it was easily a paella for 4, especially after an appetizer and salad. The rice was perfectly cooked and flavorful, and all of the fish were delicious. We first found Cayo Blanco 4 years ago when we were staying across the street at the Vanderbilt and were so impressed that we made it a “must visit” this trip. It exceeded our expectations and we will definitely visit again the next time we are in San Juan.

    Food was delicious. Service was a bit slow. I had to ask a couple of times for items requested. The coconut mojito was top notch as was the steak! Seaweed salad delicious as well as the crab, so sweet!

    The food was good. I like the way they cook the fish with some kind of potato or yuka and plantains, but it was salty. The steak was ok. It’s not a fancy place, but It’s a nice place. I would recommend it.

    This was the best meal we had on our trip. The lobster was unbelievably delicious. I only wish we had eaten here before our last night in San Juan. Make reservations as there is not a lot of room in this roadside restaurant.

    This small, family owned restaurant offers a wide and creative menu. Lobster empanadas are like little purses bursting with great flavor. We shared the chef salad which is loaded with vegetables not seen at too many restaurants in Puerto Rico. Lobster tail is seasoned well, tender and worth the price. Steak was prepared as ordered and tasty, though not as tender the beef in the states. They do serve a delicious flan for dessert. In an area with so many restaurants to choose from, Cato Blanco is high on the list!

    A very small cozy restaurant across from STK. Pallela was salty. Steak and potatoes good. Drinks and service were good too. The area surrounding the restaurant is lively and busy with shops, restaurants and casino in walking distance. Weather I'm January is great but bring a sweater for nighttime.

    The restaurant is small and cozy. Our mango Sangria was really great. We were excited to share the Paella but unfortunately it was a disappointment. It was more like a big plate of rice, which was tasty, but there was barely any seafood in it. We had to really search to find any fish.. the scallops were minuscule. The waitress was very accommodating and when we told her, she brought us a few more shrimp. Overall, it was a pleasant experience, but next time I would order differently.

    Quality of food was very poor. Food was not fresh- my fish was frozen. The vegetables were frozen as well. How do you not even serve fresh vegetables- especially at this price point. Do not recommend.

    Absolutely awesome, while approaching the restaurant it doesn’t look upscale but don’t judge a book by its cover! We were greeted by a gentleman that was warm and inviting, our waitress was friendly and very attentive, we asked for recommendations and the gentleman suggested the Octopus, it was hands down the best my wife and I have ever had! The avocado shrimp was awesome, for a main course the pasta de mare was off the chain. While you’re in San Juan don’t miss this gem of a restaurant! Jay and Lynor Boston

    My wife and I ordered seafood here. For an appetizer, we got the mussels. They were tough and somewhat gamey. For dinner, my wife had the mahi-mahi which was supposed to be fresh and local. It was over cooked and not very good but she ate it. I had the swordfish, it was not eatable and I couldn’t finish it. We both had mashed potatoes as a side, and they were awful, dry and tasteless. The waiter was kind and apologetic and did not charge me for my swordfish.
