My wife and I were strolling through the streets Old San Juan when we were getting hungry. We stopped at the Chicago Burger Co. And we're looking at their menu. We explained to the waiter we were looking for authentic Puerto Rican food so he gave us directions to Cafe Manolin. It's a small place but man do they give... More

My husband and I were lucky to walk by Cafe Manolin today before heading back home to the states and both had the skirt steak meal with their restaurant made chimichurri sauce... One word, DELICIOUS! It wasn't a fancy meal but it was the perfect local meal and spot to dine at before we left Puerto Rico. Definitely a local... More

Wow! Loved the Cafe and Food. Ate here on a recommendation from the staff at Chateau Cervantes and throughly enjoyed it. My wife had the Puerto Rican Steak and I had the Chicken with Beans, Rice and Amarillo's. Topped it off with a Cafe Espresso Taza, awesome. Our first meal when we return for our next cruise.

We stopped here yesterday morning for breakfast and the staff was courteous and friendly. This is a good place to start a busy day of walking and sightseeing. Prices are very reasonable.

Huge variety of puertorrican food in this menu. All dishes are exquisite. You'll need additional time to make a decision. They have the best rice and beans in Old San Juan, so this side is a must, also matched with a side of tostones or mofongo with the protein of your preference.

Never judge a book by its cover. Or the illustration in the tour guide. I had breakfast food here. VERY average. My 12 year old can do just as good. The best part of the dining experience was the very cute and diva-ish toddler two tables away. OMG she was very cute and is going to be a handful.

Their drinks are very reasonable & they actually put a fair amount of alcohol in it unlike most of the places in the area. The staff explained what things were on the menu & even told... More
