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.

My wife and I ate here once while we were staying in Old San Juan. I thought the food was wonderful. I had their salmon and my wife had their rice special. From what I saw I got the better deal. If you're not a vegetarian I'd avoid the special, but there meat courses are excellent.

Great service and food! Best meal we had in Puerto Rico! They had specialty drinks that are a must! The restaurant had an eclectic style and romantic setting. It was a wonderful place to spend our last night.

By far, Mesa Verde served us the best meal we had during our stay in Puerto Rico! We arrived early (6:15pm) and the hostess was very accommodating to our larger group of 6. There where three main course options (salmon, local swordfish, vegetarian) and all 6 of us made the smart decision of getting the swordfish! While the cost of... More

Our family was in San Juan and had already experienced the traditional PR fare. Verde Mesa was a wonderful departure. My husband had the special rice dish, I had the couscous, kids had fish dishes. The hummus and multigrain bread were nice appetizers. Cute and quirky decor and pleasant service. We're glad we stopped to dine here!

Loved the tuna cous cous salad! Delicious Mediterranean platter! Fresh fish and healthy choices! Also, cute atmosphere! Definitely a little hidden gem in Old San Juan!

I live in Puerto Rico and was doing internal tourism, came to this place by chance and don't regret it. I'm a vegetarian and the food is excellent and the service extraordinary. Totally worth it and enjoyable.

Each dish was very thoughtfully created and meticulously presented. We interacted with several of the staff members during our visit, and each one was incredibly (and genuinely) friendly. It felt like we'd been coming there for years! They were very knowledgeable about the food and wine as well. We had such an enjoyable time, we'll certainly return!

We were told to try this restaurant by fellow guests staying at The El Convento Hotel. They had eaten here the night before with their two children of about 10 and twelve. Not only did the adults rave about the food, but their children did as well. We were lucky to find an outdoor table as the restaurant was very... More
