This is a great place for tapas and drinks. It's close to the harbor in old San Juan. You can sit outside and just enjoy people watching, boats coming & going. Tha staff is very friendly. Great time!

Had lunch for two here and simple grouper tacos, chicken and chorizo empadillas with a small pitcher of sangria was nearly $70.00! This is a bar with bar nibbles at high prices and not for fine dining. Romantic Not - cozy yes. Very well located with deceiving exterior looks.

This was my first time in Puerto Rico, as soon as I flew in, I went to Old San Juan for dinner. I was lucky that the taxi driver told me about Toro Salao. The place is in the heart of Old San Juan near everything you want to see. I bellied up to the bar and enjoyed a cold... More

Food was good and plentiful, service was 1st class - in a Caribbean way! Joel our waiter was a pleasure to talk to and his attention to us was excellent. Having been on a cruise ship since 8th Nov (today's the 11th) my partner was dying for a draft beer. Toro Salao delivered on drinks food and service. Well done... More

Perfect place for a cozy, romantic dinner! It's also a great place to just pop in for a visit to the bar for tapas and heavenly sangria! Good menu with plenty of choices. The food is always fresh and fantastic! The paella here is delicious and it's a very generous portion. The waitstaff is always friendly and welcoming. I just... More

It's not hard to fond good food in San Juan, but it is hard to find it at a good price. This place delivered...plus had good sangria at a good price as well. We shared four tapas items between 3 people and were pleasantly full. Definitely eat at Toro Salao!

On 11 October, 2014, the family and I returned to Viejo San Juan, Puerto Rico to share our experience with our adult kids. Which is rare because after they turn 21, it is every man for themselves. So we arrived in Viejo San Juan at 09:40 A.M. After getting our luggage, rental car, and arrived at Calle de San Francisco,... More

We loved this place! The food was awesome and our bartender was very attentive and helpful. We got the french fries which were a very large portion, the hummus, and their hot sauce is one of the best I've ever had. We went to a fine dining establishment later in the week and my husband and I both agreed we... More

This is my fifth trip to San Juan and the fifth time that I've gone to Toro Salao for their Paella. It's the best that I've had. Portion is big enough to share and the price is reasonable. Service is friendly and good. You're choice to eat outside or inside, we've done both.
