We found the place with other recommendations on trip advisor and yelp. The food was really good. They had multiple vegetarian and non vegetarian options. My 1 yr old niece relished the lentil soup ! She refused to share it. The staff was friendly and did not hesitate to recommend other restaurants and places to visit. I think that's always... More

This was not only one of the best meals we ate in Old San Juan, but one of the most memorable meals we have eaten in a restaurant, period. The staff took such great care of us- all of them came and checked in on us. The food was phenomenal- healthy but interesting. We are vegetarians but eat fish, and... More

The ambiance of this restaurant transports you out of Puerto Rico, Excellent drinks made with their infusions! Food was very healthy and if you are not a vegetarian, a lot of the dishes have fish...I loved it! service also great and their wine list very good and complete.

Fresh, delicious food, excellent service, beautiful atmosphere. Even the music was great. So happy to have found this gem in Old San Juan. Wish I could take it home with me!! Highly recommend the Purple Cloud for dessert.

Overpriced food with fancy names. You can eat same food in your home for few bucks and better taste.

Visiting Old San Juan is always such a Bohemian treat every time we visit PR. After eating fried traditional fare and suffering through hearburn, this mostly fiah eating family was looking forward to some healthy fare. We were not disappointed at Verde Mesa. We started with the Botanical Bar- strawberry lemonade and pomegranate with ginger concoction. Delicious. We ordered The... More
