Great place, nice ambience!

Went there couple days ago, it was really nice. The restaurant decor has vintage-ish look that provides a cool and relaxing feeling, as does the music that they had. I had a pizza with guacamole, i can't recall the name but it was surprisingly good. Tatiana, the waitress, gave me an excellent... read more

The servers were nice but the quality of the food (chips from Costco) and salad similar to the local supermarket but 45minutes to deliver to our table. I am a picky eater and when I asked the waitress regarding their freshness she smiled in a very obvious way. This place is ok but not for the price they charge. Time... More

Went there because friends strongly recommended it to us. We ate on bottom floor. I started off with chips and guacamole appetizer. Was absolutely horrible. Chips seemed like poured out of opened bag for two days and dip I can't even began to explain the taste. My sandwich was not bad but was expecting more because of high reviews I... More

The fact that one can take out anything and add anything available to your plate is one of the best things in this place. I had a Karlox with avocado, it was suggested by our waitress. Kids ate the hummus (which is made by them, very delicious!) with pita and my wife ate a vera sandwich. Everything was too delicious!... More

After waiting 20 minutes to sit at the table that was empty when we walked in and put our name on the waiting list, it took 15 minutes to get the attention of a server. We ordered the Sunday Brunch. Drinks came out after 20 minute wait. They totally forgot to bring out the fruit course, and one of the... More

My wife and I had a evening dinner here after we arrived in Old San Juan and a long day driving the island. The concierge at our hotel recommended it to us as a good casual dining place. The downstairs space has high ceilings and small tables with lots of couples, friends and people seated visiting. The menu is sandwiches,... More

I came here with my husband for dinner. The restaurant is somewhat small and it was crowded so we sat at the bar... best thing we could have done! Laura (the bartender) was so friendly and took the time to explain the menu to us even though she was quite busy making all sorts of colorful drinks. We shared the... More

If you are looking for a casual lunch spot in Old San Juan - head to St. Germain! Fresh sangria along with fresh salads, sandwiches, ceviche - really enjoyed it! Terrific service as well!
