We were staying in San Juan in February for 2 nights prior to joining a cruise a and our taxi driver was giving us a lot of information on the area so we asked him which was the best restaurant; without hesitation he recommended Verde Mesa and enthused about it so we decided to give it a try. Wow was... More

Excellent food, drink, and hospitality! A gem in Old San Juan and a must eat locale for dinner if you love a quaint, farm to table experience. I would tell anyone who travels to San Juan to not leave without eating at Verde Mesa. If you choose to opt out, consider your trip a failure.

The attendant at my hotel recommended Verde Mesa to me as I mentioned that I love seafood. Upon entering the restaurant, the door closes and you feel as though you could be anywhere in the world - France, Italy, San Francisco - or Old San Juan. The staff is very friendly. The drinks are all fresh (I had a gin... More

My husband and I just returned from a trip to Puerto Rico. We had read about this small restaurant and since we are eating predominately vegetarian food at this point in our lives, we decided to give it a try. The food was outstanding, the service great and the presentation also wonderful! We had ceviche as an appetizer. the fish... More

Overpriced. Especially when they bill you double for your meal (ie you check your credit card statement and discover they ran yor card twice). Then, when you call back to complain, not only do they refuse to reimburse you for the money they stole, they waste your time and act rude. When the manager is presented with the evidence, they...

I stayed a weekend in OSJ with my family and because an interest from my wife came here to eat. I was either overwhelmed or lazy to pick another place to eat. How lucky that I followed her instinct. We were looking for fish because it was Good Friday and we're all Catholics. The place looked not crowded, but very... More

All you want is there.. delicious and healthy food. A little place in old San Juan, excellent location, gorgeous decoration. A little expensive but definitively worth it. Try to save and ask for the entire menu!

This is absolutely one of the best meals I've ever had. I had the tuna steak, and it was wonderful. Definitely more expensive than we were expecting, but the service was excellent, and the atmosphere was impeccable.
