Fresh food

Very good sandwiches, salads, pizza and soup. Good service. The place is small. If you go on a rush hour chances are you might not find a table.

This is a wonderful and very cool place to have brunch. However, you must be a person of infinite patience. We had breakfast on a Sunday morning. Entree's do not come to the tale at the same time. Also, my breakfast came with a mimosa and it didn't arrive at the table until long after i had gotten my breakfast.... More

My husband and I came here for our 4th wedding anniversary and LOVED it! It was one of the best-tasting and most affordable meals I have had in my life, and the service was phenomenal. The server told us my husband's meal would take a while to make (they make their food fresh), and he then brought us a free... More

Nice fresh salads, pizza and sandwich place in Old San Juan. Service was very good. Of course parking was horrible but that is to be expected.... Prices were very reasonable but we ordered margaritas and they came in extremely small glasses, not worth the $8 each.

Nice atmosphere, friendly service. Service was good, not slow during my visit. The food is what made it great. I rate 11/10. Arguably the best sandwich I've ever had.

St. Germain has three floors and three experiences. We ate at all three and they are all great. Our favorite was The Mezzanine on the second floor. They have a great happy hour from 4 to 8pm with a bunch of drinks and tapas items for only $4 each. The top floor has a great wine bar and the sampler... More

Ordinary food. Slooooooow service. The fish rots from the head. Apparently, the owners just do not care to train their wait staff. The restaurant was more than half empty, but every request -including for menus - took at least 15 minutes to answer.

This place has a great atmosphere and service. Christina was very detailed in her description of choices and helped us make our decisions with a few of her favorites. The food and drinks were all amazing. We were checking out other peoples plates as they went by. Moderately priced for what you get! If you go at night the bars... More

The food was great, but not large portions. The service was excellent- all the wait staff were very sweet with our travel-weary children. Planning on going back tonight!~
