We went for dinner on our first night since it was only two blocks from the hotel. We had the beef mofongo relleno and plantanos. The food was great!!! I would recommend this to anyone in San Juan. Also the mojitos were great!!

The food was good but not worth the wait. The staff was rude and inattentive. The busy street corner atmosphere was not inviting.

Braved a torrential storm while eating here and stayed fairly dry from the wind swept rain. The rain however did not dampen the taste of the food. You can pay twice as much and not get a better tasting skirt steak in San Juan. It is close to the port so if you are on a cruise stop you will... More

Be advised that the restaurant is all outdoor seating, and that it is very small (like all of the restaurants in old San Juan that we ate at). I got fish tacos, and my husband got the steak wrap. Both were very good. Better yet, it was one of our cheapest meals, even with drinks. (Bogo mojitos). My sexy mojito... More

On our third visit to San Juan we finally tried Punto de Vista as it seemed a favorite of many travelers. They tout themselves as the home of the original BACARDI Mojito, and they do serve a good Mojito (it would have been better in a real glass). As far as everything else, the food was average. If you are... More

This was a great stop when we stayed in PR for our cruise. We are Mojito lovers and this place did not disappoint! The food was good as well. I had the mofongo and it was extremely tasty! I washed it down with 2 Mojitos and I was ready to sail! A must stop especially if you are cruising!

Visited San Juan, did not planned anything, decided to wing it including where to eat. Happened to stumble upon this place where 90% of all seating was outdoors, good thing I did! Do not expect the staff to hound you every two minutes they take your order serve your food and leave you to it. I had the fried Platanos(green... More

First went here when tempted by the 2 for 1 all day mohitos. Then after reading tripadvisor reviews decided go try the food. Had churrascitas - beef wraps with fries. All very good and not expensive although not the most salubrious of locations. The service was good and all the staff were really nice and friendly which makes a big... More

The skirt steak tacos were amazing and fairly priced. The mojitos are fairly priced when you get two due to the bogo. Our waiter was not very good but I think he was not really a waiter. The other staff was much better and a different waitress ended up bringing our bill. The food was plated in modern plating styles... More
