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.

I heard about st germains on trip advisor and wish we had gone there earlier in the holiday! We went on our last night, had great cocktails in the bar with scallop cerviche and some other food and it was delicious, I was expecting it to be good but it was great. We then went up to the roof terrace... More

Simple and delicious food. Sometimes, you need a break from the heavy spices and oil. This place offers that break. Their ingredients are fresh and their portions are just right. Enough to satisfy you and fuel you up til a snack and coffee while exploring old San Juan. The interior is quaint and a perfect complement to the old San... More

It's very hard to find a place like this. What you call healthy or veggie and for it to be this great is incredible. Been here a few times and have brought friends over. Everyone has agreed in the same thing, great food hate the service. The place is little and always packed with little room to walk and the... More

We came here for Sunday brunch-- there was a bit of a wait, despite having arrived 20 min after it opened! Totally worth it, though. The coffee is absolutely sensational-- I don't know if it's the roast or blend, but it was delicious. I had the croque madame, which is made with a croissant and battered in the egg-- heavenly!...

I was traveling with 2 friends, and we were looking for a place to go during the early evening, on a Thursday night. My friends had previously had dinner here, and were blown away by how great the food was, and how little they spent. During their previous visit, they heard about the Happy Hour (HH) from 4pm to 8pm;... More
