The menu is a bit limited, but fresh food. Service was slow even though there were few tables filled. I did enjoy my dinner, but with so many choices in San Juan I will not return.

I was truly looking forward in having dinner at the restaurant. Before arriving I was actually savoring the dishes I saw presented on the local TV in PR. Master of disaster list: 1. No reservations are taken. 2. We walked in yesterday and after 15 min we were greeted. 3. We were told we had to wait 30 min. and... More

Ok. . . if you're looking for filling your belly on the cheap. . . this is NOT the spot for you. If you are looking for a unique vegan/vegetarian/pescaterian (fish) experience. . . you found a pretty eclectic spot in Verde Mesa. The more heavier dishes are definitely the fish dishes on menu. The prices are up there however... More

Found this quaint little restaurant as we wandered around Old San Juan. The food was very good and very fresh. It was not traditional island cuisine if that is what you are looking for. But it was local, fresh and delicious. Loved the decor! I am not sure it would be a great restaurant for kids though - not a... More

I have been to PR several times for business and never seemed to be able to fit the restaurant into my agenda. With it's outstanding reviews, I was SO excited to add this meal to my trip this past April. The decor is amazingly quaint and the servers excelled at being efficient without being haughty. That said, the food was... More

We wanted a restaurant with great seafood and vegetarian choices and were not disappointed! This small (suggest you get there early if you want to be sure to get a table- no reservations are possible- we got there at 6:30 on a Saturday evening) and intimate charming restaurant has incredibly gracious staff- we asked to sit by the window and...

This is a very cute restaurant, the food is healthy and delicious at the same time. It is a very creative and unique menu and environment. The staff of course was excellent. I had a lentil based soup and a tuna salad with very unique set of mixed greens.
