I went to this restaurant for dinner Aug 2014. It was a first experience. I ordered some spanish food, Chicken and rice and my daughter ordered steak and rice. She did not care for the food, only because she wanted Mc Donalds (she's 10) she is not used to spanish food. I loved the food and would definitely go back.... More

Food was fantastic and extremely reasonable for the taste and quality. I had the whole snapper with rice and beans and flavor was perfect on everything. Service was a little spotty (they seemed extremely busy, it was a Saturday night). The only con we experienced were the drinks (alcoholic) were terrible! Margarita was like water and tequila with no sours... More

My time at Mojito's included a lot of firsts: it was my first time having coconut flan and my first time having mofongo. Both were really good experiences. We started on the inside of the restaurant, but it was very cold so we decided to eat outside at one of the sidewalk tables. This was both good and bad. The... More

It was more like a old familiar Spanish kitchen. The food was great, fresh and delicious. Was not that impressed as far as the feel of the restaurant and how fast the service was. The prices were the same as they are in New York. I think we were looking for options that we don't find at the Spanish restaurants... More

We had lunch at the recommendation of our guide who took our group to Old San Juan. We were not let astray. The food was delicious. I had mofongo de pollo (with garlic sauce) and my husband a carne fritas (with black beans and rice that were to die for). All was so tasty and highlighting local flavors. The atmosphere... More

Very family oriented so it can be quite busy and crowded however the food is worth it. I had shrimp mofongo made with sweet plantains and it was soooo delicious! The sauce was mildly spicy and so wondrful. The service is fast and very friendly. If in Old San Juan this is a must!

Mofongo was great. Plantain had wonderful baked flavor and the pork was cooked just right. Drinks were average but the service was the downfall. Server was annoyed that we did not speak spanish and showed it in her actions towards us. Treated tables next to us much different. Would not go back due to this.

came here after walking around San Juan. drinks were huge and delicious. food was equally good and huge portions. would recommend sitting outside as the inside didn't look as nice. Would recommend the mufongo.
