After an afternoon of strolling the streets of old San Juan, this was an excellent choice for dinner. We enjoyed the Sangria and shared a seafood paella. Delicious! Service was great. Location was great. We sat outside and people watched. Highly recommend.

I visited Toro Salao last night (5/15/15) for the second time since my very first visit February of 2015. I was immediately greeted with a big smile and a warm welcome by Hostess Adrianna. Although it was only my second time dining at Toro Salao, she made me feel like a longtime customer and local. The food was great as... More

Food and service were average. Too expensive for what they have to offer. The terrace is inviting, but after sitting there for a while we realized we had made a mistake. There are much better places in the Old San Juan

Visited Toro Salao for drinks and appetizers. Sat outside in the evening and it was perfect. Plenty of people watching to go along with some very good sangria. Tried a few appetizers to include the fish tacos and flatbread. Fish tacos were excellent! Service was a little slow, but we didn't mind as we were taking in the sights of... More

Our hotel was located in Plaza Colon and so we passed Toro Salao every time we walked to the garage. Our first visit to Toro Salao was at the end of a very long day. We sat out front on the terrace so we could enjoy the cool breeze and people watch. We were seated by the hostess and soon... More

After a fabulous day of taking in the sites in Old San Juan, my friends and I happened upon Toro Salao for some early evening drinks. The tapas and happy hour mojitos were amazing. If you are lucky you will sit in Bianca's section. She graciously guided us through the menu and gave us a detailed run down of things... More

This is the place you want to spend an afternoon in Old San Juan. We have been there a number of times trying various dishes which always excite the taste buds. Pair it with one of their fruit Mojitos and you have a great afternoon.

Best food on the island. Everyone in our group loved our waitress Bianca. Our group ordered a lot - everything was good. I recommend the Sirloin Steak, Clay Pot Chicken, or any of the tapas.
