Good atmosphere, good vegetarian options

Good Old San Juan restaurant with vegetarian options & nice non alcoholic drinks. We had a lunch combination. Service is quick. Food is good. Prices reasonable. Great place for lunch but also open for dinner.

Authentic French cuisine and great salads and bread! We had a late lunch and the place was still busy. Homemade lemonade and daily quiche specials.

The food and drinks at St Germain are great. However, the 2nd and 3rd levels are where the ambiance really impressed me. They make wonderful drinks and all the chairs are comfy. Our seats were on a balcony overlooking the streets.....unbelievable!!

A delicious option and alternative to some of the heavier cuisine offered. We had ample and filling salads for dinner, made with fresh fruits, greens, herbs, and other ingredients in interesting combinations. We would definitely return!

I really enjoyed dinning at this place, so much that I went back the next day. The first time I got the prosciuto, tomato, artichoke personal pizza with a side salad and chickpeas, to drink I tried the basil lemonade and then the ginger lemonade. Everything was prepared with a lot of care, good taste and very fresh ingredients. Mmmmm,... More

We spent the bulk of Sunday, the 15th, in Old San Juan. We wanted to start with brunch and found SGB right in the middle of OSJ. We arrived about 11:30 and not surprisingly had about a 20 minute wait which we happily passed on the third level enjoying Pina Coladas in the cool sun. The food was good, not... More

When we got there we were given a table we ordered our food, the food turned out to be great when it came, but we were sitting there for over 2 hours. The appetizers took around one hour to come since we had placed the order. It wasn't the experience i was looking forward to.

This place has three levels, this restaurant at the bottom, tapas bar on the mezzanine, and a wine bar on the roof. At least two or three vegetarian options at the time of this review (soups, salads, pizzas, and sandwiches) all good. Note: the pizzas are actually baked on pita bread. The staff was very friendly and courteous. The bars... More
