Come hungry

There are so many options for food in old San Juan and I intend to try them all :) What I liked about this place is that they were not playing the tourist trap game. frankly, I was probably the only "tourist" there. And the place was packed. Dishes were well portioned and cooked to to order. I... read more

This place is rather unassuming, situated along a busy stretch of Calle Fortaleza. I found it when I used to work on cruise ships that docked in Old San Juan. The sandwiches quickly became a staple of my diet when I was in town. The Media Noche sandwich - unreal. It comes on this sweet bread that is unlike any... More

My wife and I have been eating at Siglo XX since we spent a year in Puerto Rico in the mid '80s. I wouldn't recommend any dish since I've never had a bad meal in this most excellent eatery. But I do like the breakfast tortillas and will have one for lunch, if I missed breakfast. We've seen the menu... More

Media noche sandwich is the best. Will return every time we return to Puerto Rico. Coffee is very good.

A bit of an old fashioned breakfast. Two fried eggs and a couple slices of ham. The bread was fantastic. Just a simple but excellent breakfast.

I was visiting Old San Juan and asked for a nice place to have a family meal. I really appreciate the recommendation. Food was awesome, spanish and caribbean cuisine. Try the tapas. And service was amazing. Really friendly personnel. Hopefully will return before the end of my trip and definitely recommend it.

This place looks like a bar from outside, but inside it looks like a trusted local gem. The front is more like a neighborhood diner, the rear like a comfortable local meeting place with white linen tablecloths. Our waiter was excellent. The daily lunch specials we had were Mofongo with pastillo beef and baked chicken breast in cream mushroom sauce... More

I visited San Juan 2 years ago, and I had breakfast at this location. I loved it so much I could not wait to return. We stayed at the Casablanca Hotel, so we were lucky to be a few steps away from the Siglo XX. We were in Old San Juan for 3 nights and ate breakfast at Siglo XX... More

One day while walking around Old San Juan during a business trip, I was looking for a place for lunch and took a chance on Siglo XX. I liked that they accept AMEX which is a big plus, not because I like AMEX but because I have to use it for business. The place itself and the food is nothing... More

We have a business meeting and our associated choose Siglo XX, I was a little leery first because the restaurant is in a busy commercial street and they were few people eating at lunch time, however the restraint prove to be a good gem of Puerto Rican comfort food.
