This restaurant has been closed for six months according to staff at Marriott where I am now staying. Phone is disconnected and I walked past where it used to be.

You need to asks for Katya as your waitress. She was excellent! The food is prices but worth it. You will need to try the Malanga Soup--its to die for. The coconut mojito was my favorite drink.

Rafael is a chemist behind the bar and serves great & unique cocktails! Great creativity with the food! Local ingredients with a sophisticated twist. Excellent!

We walked in without reservation around 7:30pm, the place was a little dead. They sat us right away and I got the vibe, it was supposed to be a fancy place. We spent a few minutes on the menu, and before our waiter came by to introduce himself, we have already decided on empanadas, yucatan ceviche, churrasso (or maybe snapper)... More

I promised I would write a review and I apologize for taking so long. My partner and I came across Jam during Holy Week this March while on vacation. If there is one thing we found out while we were there is that it is virtually impossible to find anything opened on Good Friday in San Juan. To our surprise... More

Very cool restaurant hidden away in the Condado area. The food was amazing. Drinks to die for. I wish I had something like this close to home. The flavors were POW explode in your mouth. Next time in the island will visit Marmalade which I believe is a sister restaurant.

I'll state the obvious. They have an amazing rum list of local and regional libations. The manager created a majority of the mixed drink recipes that are on the list.

Coming from St. Thomas we eat here every trip. The food is outstanding and the same with the service. White bean soup is banging good and the menu seems to change frequently. Can't get enough of the plantains, and thinking of moving the 65 miles west. Eat here.
