Good vegetarian options, interesting place to dine

A very interesting restaurant - eclectic as reviewed by others. Food is good, with limited vegetarian items. We had the Michetta, Arozz Verde Mesa, Calderito Rattatoullie, Bebidas Botanicas.

I am a vegetarian and it is hard to find cute places for dinner. It is a very small restaurant (fits around 40 people) and has a vintage decoration. I am surprised about the bad reviews about the service because the service was superb. The waiters never had a "no" for me. They do have fish for those who are... More

We were walking around old San Juan the evening before we flew home and wanted to eat lighter fare, and we're missing our vegetables. We read about this place, found it and we're able to get a table outside immediately. We had a lovely roasted brussel sprouts appetizer with multigrain bread. Flavor were subtle but spectacular. Olive oil with a... More

Excellent fish. Nice wine. Very pretty. Good service. Lots of vegetarian options. Evidently a local favorite since we saw people there we had contact with in other places. We were pleased!

We ate dinner here with our 1 year old and had a great experience. Our waitress was excellent, and the food was delicious. Loved finding vegan options in San Juan, and loved the eclectic decor.

I've been to the restaurant Verde Mesa for the first time and I've loved the place and the food. I ordered the rice signature dish. And for dessert you should try the Purple Cloud. Delicious !!

I have no complaints about Verde Mesa. It offered tasty vegetarian (pescatarian really) cafe food. My partner had a salad with anchovies - the fish was delicious but the salad was really just a huge mound of greens. I had a lentil soup with salad and toast with cauliflower hummus. The hummus on toast was amazing, the soup was fine... More

The food at Verde Mesa was delicious and healthy. Great options for vegetarians and vegans, but good meal options for those who aren't strictly vegetarian as well. The service was impeccable and the decor inside is quaint and quite nice. I highly recommend a meal at Verde Mesa in Old San Juan!

Totally stumbled on this gorgeous little place. The location is amazing, with a view of the harbour and sitting right on the cobble stone street. Menu is simple but super delicious and fresh. Organic tasty hot food in a small non assuming place. About a 15 minute walk fro the docks, it was an oasis of freshness and sun. Highly... More
