Great service, good food, great atmosphere

Right in the heart of Old San Juan, lies Toro Salao. They have amazing tapas and the mojitio is a MUST! The empanadas are some of the best I have ever had! If looking for a quick bite and a drink, this is the place to go!

This was my second visit to this Restaurant. They have excellent empanadas and great sangria. My husband loved the paella and the seafood. I enjoyed their steak and potatoes!

Choose restaurants carefully in Old San Juan based on which and how many ships are docked. We happened to visit Salao on a four-cruise ship docking day and knew that we had to have an earlier lunch if we wanted better service and food. We had two salads; both had great dressing. The service for the food was much faster... More

Best fish tacos I ever had, I would also say best on the island. The hostess Adriana was amazing, as well as the bartender Angel. Extremely polite and charming and had the best recommendations. Five star all the way. I would go here every night if I could.

We were looking for a nice restaurant in El Viejo San Juan that we can eat a very good Mofongo; but for some reason we decided to try Toro Salao. The outside seating area was inviting and very nice. I wish I can remember the name of our waiter but he was very nice. Tapas excellent, good drinks and affordable... More

Best food that we had Puerto Rico. Fresh salads, excellent paella and best ever vegetarian paella as well. Cozy outdoor dining, great margaritas and a friendly staff. We will definitely be back to Toro Salao when we return to San Juan.

The food was delicious. I ordered the Mahi Mahi and my husband got the clay pot chicken. We ordered the bon bons covered in chocolate for dessert. Our server Daniel was outstanding and the hostess Aidy (sp?) was the reason why we decided to have dinner here. She was ver sweet and attentive. We will definitely come back!

Stopped by for an appetizer and a mojito. Had the Chiri Slider Burgers and they were a meal unto themselves - YUMMY! Will definitely come back to visit this delightful restaurant!
