Breakfast in Old San Juan

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... read 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

First impression of the restaurant was not a good one. The restaurant was empty and dark. Now I know the reason why. This restaurant has an issue with pests(roaches). As soon as I walked into the establishment I turned to my right and saw a roach in the glass casing. I immediately walked out.

A great local diner. This place has been there for 40+ years. Consistently good food, where the locals go. It might not call your attention by looking at the outside of inside, but its nice Spanish-Puerto Rican food, not a tourist trap. Just down the street from our hotel. Open early for breakfast. Large servings and the sweet rolls are... More

In 1988 we were in PR and I asked the hotel bell captain where he recommended we go in Old San Juan for a good, authentic meal. He recommended Siglo XX (Twentieth Century), with no hesitation. It was a very good food in a no nonsense setting. Fast forward to 2015 and we are cruising with friends in the Caribbean,... More

My husband and I traveled to Puerto Rico for a week on February 13, 2015. We wanted to strictly eat Puerto Rican food. We tried more than a few restaurants in Old San Juan. Our favorite, Siglo XX on Calle Fortaleza, was our favorite. The Paella for Two is excellent. We also had grouper and halibut. My husband had some... More

This is a good place to stop for a good inexpensive breakfast! Service was a little on the slow side, but there was only one server working and it was very busy at the time.

After reading the recent reviews below, I was hesitant to go to Siglo XX. I checked the reviews on Yelp, and the locals seem to give this restaurant favorable reviews. So I decided to give Siglo a chance, and I'm glad we did. At dinner, the staff was friendly. The waiter explained that Siglo XX translates to "20th Century" and... More
