My wife and I had lunch here at the recommendation of a local friend and she did not steer us wrong! Great healthy food! We had the daily quiche for an appetizer and two of the sandwichs. Plus the Ginger Lemonade and Ginger Margarita were fabulous! The service was fantastic - thank you, Krystal! I would highly recommend this restaurant... More

Went there with my daughter the last evening of our vacation for drinks and tapas. We sat on a little balcony overlooking the street in old San Juan on comfy chairs, and were served by Adolfo, who was wonderful. Had the tacos de carnitas, meatballs and pizza. All were delicious. She had the passion fruit mojito and I had the... More

We went for Brunch and it started off great! However, we should have known when it took over 20-minutes for 2 juices. We asked the waitress why the delay and she simply smiled. Very small menu selection yet the food took close to an hour. This place would not survive in our hometown. We understand Island Time but seriously hire... More

Great food and service. Even the drinks were freshly made. I tried the salad and quiche lunch special. The menu was small but well thought out.

We spent the day in old San Juan and decided to eat at St germain bistro. It was a great choice my family of four all had meals: ceviche, pizza, romana salad and polita salad. There was great music playing from 1940s swing genre. Then the Nutella crepe was fantastic!!! Would definitely come again
