I ended up dining at St. Germain twice. The atmosphere is cozy, quaint and casual. And the food was delicious and reasonably priced. The salads are massive! And the sandwiches stayed delicious, even hours after they were made. (This is where I grabbed sandwiches to-go to eat on my flight home.) Located in beautiful Old San Juan. Highly recommended!

The Interior is very chic. I went here for dinner while may be a mistake. My options were pizza, quiche, sandwiches or salads. I got a salad. Was expensive and nothing special. Server was distracted and took him a very long time to bring bill. I'd skip for dinner

Prices were reasonable for Puerto Rican standards; however I found the rice and beans to be quite bland. The fish seemed to be saturated with grease or mushy like.

We stopped in on a Sunday afternoon and decided to leave after we realized that they were only serving brunch. After having our fill of traditional Puerto Rican cuisine and after reading so many positive reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided to return the following Tuesday for lunch. We were so happy we did! I got the quiche / salad... More

After 9 days touring PR, we needed a break from fried food and Mofongo. St Germaine was a hit. The salads were huge. The panini with prosciutto and fresh mozzarella was so good my 12 yr old stole my second half. Wife also had the apple avocado and Brie sandwich. Great combo of flavors. She was very happy. Also they... More

To be clear there are three different establishments at this address ... all operated by the same owner, but separate entities with different themes. This review is for St. Germain Bistro which is on the ground floor. We stopped in here for lunch on a grey day and we got lucky - as soon as we sat down the skies... More

We ate here on a Saturday afternoon after touring El Morro; it is a short walk from there. We visited based on Trip Advisor reviews, and were not disappointed. The food and the service were both outstanding. I had the quiche and salad lunch combo, while my husband had the soup and salad lunch combo; we both had lemonade, his... More

We visited the terrace wine bar on the roof top . What a great spot. We had the homemade sangria, it was very good. The best part was the breeze on the roof . The service was attentive and congenial . There was no food on the roof. The lower two levels serve food.
