On this trip we revisited this restaurant and it was a true pleasure. They have a great variety of tapas, rustic pizzas and puerto rican cuisine. The drink prices are reasonable and the service is excellent. Also, their churassco steak is the best in town and one of the most reasonable priced. Try everything, we enjoyed it so much we... More

We showed up close to closing. They let us order a pizza and have drinks while they closed up... very engaging staff. Very cool upstairs rustic Old San Juan... family oriented. Highly recommended the la pampa pizza!

We enjoy the service and the pizza. Depends on the time you need to wait up to 45 minutes. Even though we pass a good time and meal.

I would highly recommend this restaurant for great pizza and beer. Ask to site upstairs...was a lot brighter and not as noisy as the downstairs sitting area. Prices were reasonable too.

Pizza and lozitos were always the best in town but they started being REALLY skimpy on the toppings. We eventually stopped buying from them. Nice while it lasted. Oh, and the sangria has some kind of crushed nuts in the drink.....with no allergy warning!

This was the first restaurant we visited during our stay in Old San Juan. It is very easy to find on Forteleza Street. The atmosphere was very local, which I prefer. We ordered the bread rolls as an appetizer. They were delicious. The server recommended a certain pizza so we took her advice. It would have been good if they... More
