Cafe Carli Concierto is a friendly atmosphere and even the owner makes you feel welcomed. If you're looking for an excellent Ahi Tuna this is the place for you. They also have the best Mojiti's I have ever had. Everything made fresh. This is by far one of the best places to eat in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico.

The Food was the best we had in Puerto Rico for the week. The escargot was just delicious. The Grouper perfectly cooked. Great music, great fun! I would go back in a red hot second! Oh and you must have their famous Mojito. It really was the best Mojito I've ever had.

Yes, everybody else in here was a tourist, too, but this was a mahogany and brass upscale refuge from honky-tonk. Thank heavens. Our brief visit here on The Flavors of San Juan walking tour had sold us on coming back for dinner. Good food, excellent cocktails, attentive but unrushed service. Accomplished keyboard artist Carli so easily played sets from our... More

Good service, fab sangria, average food. It was one of the few places which was open till late, most of the restaurants close by 10-11pm. The outdoor seating was perfect for us, we didn't feel rushed at all and sat till pretty late. It's a pity that the food was just average, and also on the expensive side.

Where do I start? Our family, with teens, enjoyed great food and music at Cafe Carli. The restaurant is small and has an excellent atmosphere. They have the best mojito in San Juan. We enjoyed everything. The restaurant is excellent on its own accord; however what makes the experience unique is having the pleasure of listening to Carli and his... More

We had dinner at Carlis on a recent visit to Old San Juan, a taxi driver suggested it...we were not disappointed. Cool little place, felt like we were in a NYC club. We were looked after by Roxanne, great service despite being very busy, she took great care of us. Food was awesome, the wine list was a bit lackluster... More

Pay a visit to Carli's and listen to a nice repertoire of piano jazz standards performed by Carli himself. (Bill Evans is well represented). Ambiance is upscale and well designed for a small place. Menu and food, however, is disappointing, to say the least. Not worth having dinner unless all you care is to enjoy an evening regardless of food... More

We went to Carli's our first night in Puerto Rico after a recommendation from a friend. What an awesome experience!!! From the minute we walked in our waiter (and AMAZING bartender) Fausco treated us like family. Our table was ready and waiting in a comfy/cozy/intimate atmosphere. We had wonderful food, drinks and live piano music by Carli. The restaurant was... More

Cafe Carli was one of the stops on the Flavors of Old San Juan Food & Culture Tour (another great experience) where we had a shrimp risotto to die for and the bartender made us the most delicious and fresh Mojitos (non-alcoholic ones for our two 16 year olds!) and after such an awesome experience, we decided to make it...

My boyfriend and I were enjoying our last night in San Juan when we happened upon Carli's Restaurant. We were unaware that we were in the presence of a Jazz legend but we enjoyed the music of Carli Munoz and a young cellist. The food was delicious, the server was attentive and they had this salt scrub in the restroom... More
