Looks can be deceiving! When you see the entrance to the restaurant you think this must be just another small middle of the road type restaurant. However, the restaurant was recommended and it was convenient to our hotel so we decided to give it a try. The food excellent and the service was friendly and great. Our only disappoint was... More

As it was, we ate here twice during our time in San Juan, and would have done so a third time had the restaurant been open on Mondays. It's hidden away from the street, with covered outdoor seating (the cutest little kid tables I've ever seen!) as well as an indoor area where Turkish music is played. (The outdoor music... More

I am Turkish and I tried a lot of delicious Mediterranean cuisine both in Turkey and in the Us but I have to admit that this place is one of the best restaurant I have ever been. We tried veggie musakka and Adana kebab. Both was delicious. Staff also was very kind and friendly.Service was great. Staff wear traditional turkish... More

We travel to San Juan often, and we have been to this restaurant many times. I felt compelled to finally write a review, since this restaurant is consistently excellent every time we visit. The food, service and atmosphere are all top notch. Everything we have tried, the hummus, baba ghanoush, greek salad, shish kebab, ottomam chicken casserole have all been... More

We went to the restaurant last Friday night during our last evening in Puerto Rico. We were looking for something different from Puerto Rican food for our final night. Ali Baba was the perfect choice. The food and wine list was absolutely great. The staff and owner are incredibly friendly. The prices are reasonable and the menu had a number... More

We ate at Ali Baba and were very glad we did. They were able to put together half appetizer portions of their spreads so we could sample several of them. My wife had the lamb chops which were very tender and excellently done. I have one of the lamb casserole dishes which was very tasty. They only have one dessert,... More

We actually just ate here, and we can't say anything bad. This restaurant was 15 minutes walking from Condado Plaza in Condado area. It was so worth it!! The waitress Genesis was fantastic, and she recommended some awesome dishes for us to try. You MUST order the Tzatziki sauce as an appetizer ( and you can order a half size).... More
