This is the best restaurant in the Old San Juan area. Food is fresh, staff is friendly and the ambiance is simply delightful.

The food was good and we liked the ambiance. The service was kind of slow and slightly frazzled, though she apologized and that made it pretty OK.

Had lunch here on our last day in Old San Juan. Their gourmet sandwiches were great, along with a mojito, was a nice ending to our stay. Their menu was well stocked with something to please everyone.

Wonderful bistro in the heart of old San Juan. The food was fresh, tasty and there was lots of it. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming. We went twice in two days and will go again.

I have been to several places in Old san Juan but St. Germain Bistro has everything you can expect from an amazing place: from great bespoke cocktails to great tapas. Adolfo really made us feel welcome and even made me an amazing passion fruit mojito! We also have some tapas: we had delicious mango shrimp and steak tartare! I cannot... More

This lovely bistro is a hidden treasure. The service was friendly and fast and the food was so very good. I was sent here by my brother and his wife, who live in PR and it was such a nice place rest after a long morning at El Morro. If you have an opportunity to visit I highly recommend it.

Our front desk staff at La Concha recommended St Germaine when we asked where we could eat healthy food in Old San Juan. We walked the 3+ miles from Condado to Old San Juan, and we're rewarded with a wonderful late lunch. We had a hummus and pita appetizer. I had a salad with salmon, and my hubbie's had a... More

I loved this place when we stopped in early March. The sandwiches are great and the fresh juice is definitely worth a try. It was a little packed when there were ships in dock.

While I love pro toucan food it's nice to change things up. Here they have very fresh salads, quiches, and aguafrescas. All well balanced and refreshing. Oh, and the drinks are great too from the ginger margarita to the fresh fruit aguafrescas a refreshing change. The polinda salad is recommended.
