My husband and I ate here while on a 2-day stay in Old San Juan. When asking our taxi driver about where to eat on our way in, it was the first place he recommended for authentic food, and our tour guide on our Flavors of San Juan food tour (highly recommended!) later said the same. We both eagerly tried... More

Great restaurant in Old San Juan with outdoor seating in the square. The mofongo was delicious! We had the skirt steak and diced pork with yuca. You can choose plantains, sweet plantains, or the yuca option. The service was extremely friendly and house wines were only $5!

The people are very nice, attentive and the food is delicious. Is not a tourist trap! Believe me! You will enjoy the food, the dishes have a beautiful presentation too. If you want to try puertorrican dishes this is the place.

My wife and I visited Cafe Puerto Rico for dinner and absolutely loved it. The mofongo and skirt steak were amazing. The wait staff was very helpful and entertaining. Reservations are a must. Even in the off season. Call before you go. We did and it helped tremendously.

My daughter and I ate outside under the umbrellas on a warm summer evening and enjoyed the scenery. My daughter said the flank steak was the best steak she has ever had! The waiter and waitress were very friendly and the prices were very reasonable!

This place is small but was still able to accommodate a group of 10 people for dinner. We had a good meal made up of all traditional Puerto Rican dishes. Great service. Call ahead for a reservation or you can try your luck at walkup if you are a small group.

We tried the famous puerto rican mofongo de pollo here. The food was excellent although a little pricey but no surprise here since the restaurant is located in the heart of old San Juan. The atmosphere and the restaurant itself were amazing but the best part was our waitress the sweet and amazing Roxanna! So attentive and thoughtful, she made... More
