We happened on this little place for lunch. What a find! It is small and quirky but the food was excellent! Healthy and prepared fresh at a great price. Definitely not a touristy place. One of the best meals we had!

Beautiful restaurant in Old Town, lots of Mediterranean choices on chalkboard. Location is good and they have couple of tables outside too, where we decided to sit down. We wanted some lunch, but after 10-15mins we had to go inside ourselves to have a menu and because drinks took ages too, we thought that maybe it's better to leave.

First visit was perfect. We had appetizers, wonderful main course and shared dessert. For a drink, you choose the liquor you prefer and they make a drink of your choice. The wait staff are all informed and attentive. The entrees from the specials board are explained in detail. This is a small restaurant and the menu is limited. If you... More

Although they've expanded their menu to include fish dishes, they specialize in vegetarian/vegan dishes. Most vegetables are locally sourced from small organic farmers. First time there. Extraordinary food with a decent choice of beverages. Highly recommended, the wait is worth it.

Wait times can be long. Put your name in and get a drink at a bar in the area. They will call you. You're in Puerto Rico not a power lunch in Manhattan. Relax! Order off the specials board. We have not been dissapointed. Loyta is a sweetheart, if you get a chance to chat with her. She is passionate... More

Gave it a second try and it was worst than first!!! wait time was very long. My friend ask for a beer and it took aprox 15 minutes. The music playing on a radio was some kind of old spanish music that does not goes with the vibe of the restaurant. We sat at the table and they gave us... More

We were in San Juan from our Cruise with Holland America Lines. The lunch was wonderful, fresh, and tasty. Desert with the meringues and berries was delightful. I wish I lived here. I would go all the time. Was better than the "tourist" places to eat. Had a family atmosphere. Very friendly staff. Loved it!!

Just walking in this restaurant you know it's going to be incredible. Everything from the decor, staff, drinks, apetizers, main course, deserts is delicious and so unexpected. Great flavours and original pairings. Loved it!! The bruschetta was to die for!!!

Happened on a crowd outside beautiful building after catching sunset from fort wall across the street. Glad we followed it! Mesa Verde opened at 6 for New Years Eve special. We passed of the fixed menu-looked spectacular- and ordered off menu. Great Mediterranean plate- fresh bread and pita, luscious hummus and delightful cheese topped cherry tomatoes, picked sweet mango and... More
