We had a wonderful dinner at Carli Cafe Concierto. Food was delicious and wine was also. We enjoyed hearing both Carli and the visiting musician playing in a jazz combo. It is a small venue and frankly was just a perfect evening of dining and music.

Was in San Juan for a few days prior to a cruise. Decided to give this highly recommended restaurant a try....wish we had not. Since we did not have a reservation on a Sat evening we knew to come early and arrived at 6:30pm. We were the only customers in the restaurant and virtually every table had a reserved sign,... More

We had heard great things about this restaurant and Trip Advisor ratings were the highest. We had dinner for 6 on a Friday night. The place is small but does have outside seating. The music was loud but good and that is one of the reasons people go there. The food was supposed to be great but was a major... More

When my friend and I first arrived, the door was locked and I saw a server and guests look at us standing outside and didn't come to the door. My friend had to go to the back door to get the kitchen staff's attention to let us in. When the server, Orlando came to the door, he looked as though... More

Owner is a very good musician, and has daily jazz music, beautifully executed.The food is great, and the bartender is the winner of many a trophy for his exotic drinks. Just ask for Fausto, and hell take care of your thirst.

This was the first stop on the food tour. The place is owned by a former keyboard player from the Beach Boys. We sampled a fried Cod fish ball, mofango and something called an old lady's stomach. The cod ball was very flavorful and had good texture, The mofango was good and the old lady's stomach was a desert made... More

If you really want to enjoy a romantic dinner, this is the place. Jazz Piano music while you eat , best wine list, and the best customer service you can fine in PR. They menu offer a variety of many specialty dishes from Risotto to Salmon, steaks and much more. Need to try the Cod Fritters.

If you long for some live music and authentic local food come to Carli's. And if you savor your Martini give Fausto a try (the man is a hidden gem). Carli's piano will bring everything together. Cozy, elegant and classic, yet relaxed (Bermudas welcome). Really.
