Artful healthy local food

We enjoyed our visit for early dinner, had great service, and pleasant staff. The homemade drinks were very pleasant, the food good, but it is truly hard to make this type of menu stand out and be in a must-visit restaurant. Everything was pleasant, but nothing outstanding

After listening so many times, and seeing so many FB pictures of the place dedided to change the place and visit. I am not impress. Love the atmosphere, service was fast. Love the decoration and the atmosphere, the music also but not the food. The food was cold, not tasty, not what I expected.

We found a review for this place on here and decided to hit it up and it was well worth it. I got the ceviche which was deliciously fresh and flavoursome, as I got the appetizer size i also got the hummos and pita which was without a doubt the best hummos I've ever had. My friends loved their sandwiches... More

The food was by far the best part of this restaurant. It is very very tiny and a little uncomfortable at the tables with no room to move around. I was really surprised that they did not accept reservations given the fact it was so small. They seem to be out of a lot of things so that was kind... More

We happened upon this quaint little gem on a hot day wandering Old San Juan. What a fantastic discovery! BEYOND 5-star service, excellent craft drinks and great good. We shared the Anne salad; mixed greens, blue cheese, bacon, watermelon and red onion with a poppyseed dressing. And large enough to share. And don't miss the basil-mint mojito. Delicious! We'll definitely... More

Such a little gem in Old San Juan! Place is so cute and uniquely decorated and servers were very nice and attentive. We tried ceviche and it was sooooo good. Their personal size pizza was also very tasty and salad was awesome. We loved everything we ordered for our lunch including delicious chocolate cake and brownies with ice cream...yum! It... More

Start with the house special Ginger Margarita -- it's fabulous! The chicken pesto and tomato quiche was equally delicious and was served with a side of greens -- a rare treat in Old San Juan. Definitely a place for a repeat visit.

My boyfriend and I grabbed a quick cocktail here at the Mezzanine (Which is on the second floor of the St Germain Bistro) on a recommendation of a local we met earlier in the day. He had a daquiri and it was delicious! It wasn't one of those blended strawberry sugar bombs either; it was a true daquiri served up... More
