My wife and I stayed in Old San Juan for 4 nights and found Toro Salao our favorite place for a lite meal and for the best drinks in the area. The outside dining is especially welcoming. We ate here three times for lunch and snacks and drinks. All dishes were pretty good, but not exceptional. What stands out is... More

Toro Salao was on my short list of great food places, based on reviews on Trip advisor. After half a day of walking - out to the fort and all around OSJ - we came upon it quite by accent, located in a charming, little space off Fortaleza where a number of small bars/restaurants each have outdoor seating. I call... More

We went there recently. The waiters were attentive, and the location was great. The food was good - not great - but then the prices were not excessive either.

Both the sliders and chocolate cake desert were delicious. The chocolate cake was unique with a spicy after taste that I have never experience anywhere in the world before. The waitress, Bianca, was very friendly and gave us the best recommendations for our food. I would definitely return when I come back to San Juan. Ricardo C. from Ecuador

Located next door to our favorite spot (Dragonfly), we gave Toro a chance . . . and we're glad we did! Creative cuisine with great staff! We'll be back!

We enjoyed this restaurant so much that we ate here twice during our stay in San Juan. The staff was very attentive and made great food and beverage recommendations. We ordered a few of the appetizers to share and had the delicious red sangria as well. Would definitely eat here again!

We stopped here to have drinks before our reservation at Dragonfly. We were seated quickly by a friendly young lady, and didn't expect much since we would only be here for a short while. We were definitely wowed by the service we received. Tamara was fantastic!! She was fast, friendly and efficient. Got us to order an appetizer to hold... More

One of the best restaurants to eat at in Old San Juan. The food is incredible, especially the mahi tacos and our server, Bianca was so great! Not only did she take great care of us but have us tips on where to go on the island. This was a great experience!

We were a group of 8, meeting in San Juan to enjoy New Year's together. Our friend from England made a reservation for the 8 of us at El Asador. The reservations were confirmed, but when we showed up for our New Year's Eve reservation, El Asador was closed. There was another couple there who also had reservations. They closed... More

With all of the great places to eat in Old San Juan, this place stands out. The staff is very friendly and helpful with both food and drink recommendations. The food is simply fantastic. My favorites are the flat bread with chorizo and the paella.
