I came across the restaurant by chance and I'm glad I did. The host was a handsome poised man and I'm not going to lie it didn't take much for me to sit down and eat after seeing him. I told him that this was my first time and that I wanted to taste authentic Puerto Rican fare. He suggested... More

We tried to eat here one night when the band was playing and there was a cover charge, so we came back another night and had a wonderful meal. We forgave the slightly-slow service because we were so happy with our meal. They had a large party in the back room, so that probably contributed to food coming out of... More

Great frozen margaritas, but priced well over the neighborhood average. Menu boasts of bland fried foods, nothing exciting. Food as delivered was greasy and VERY overpriced for San Juan. Don't waste time on this place, there are so many other great options on the Condado strip!

Our friends came to visit and we took them to Yerba buena on Monday night. The music was awesome and the service was great. Nice place to visit if you are in Condado.

Great food, great drinks! Atmosphere inside was quiet and elegant. Service very attentive. The short ribs, Cuban pork and coconut shrimp were all delicious. Excellent mohito. Very accommodating when we wanted to change our reservation to a little later, but it was a weeknight.

Would totally recommend this restaurant! The food was very good, plated to look very appetizing, and the staff was eager to answer questions about the menu choices. Very accomodating when asked to substitute and item.

While stating in Condado we went to Yerba Buena for some great food but on Mondays the great Latin Jazz trumpet n player Humberto Ramirez does a show with his big band. This alone is worth the trip. We arrived for our reservation and our table was still occupied. The host was very attentive and sat us at another table... More

This restaurant was recommended by a friend and we were very pleased. The food was fabulous, service great, location perfect for our needs. We had churrasco with beans and rice. Best churrasco that I have eaten. Prices were fair for a resort area. A special treat was a live band that took the stage at about 10 pm. Would definitely... More

We eat at Yerba Buena everytime we visit San Juan and are never disappointed. The set up is nice and airy and the service is always attentive and pleasant. My boyfriend and I always order the churrasco and love it! We got some of the house specialty drinks this last time and were pleasantly surprised. Definitely check this place out!

A little pricey but the food is great. Mofongo and skirt steak worth the price. Wines a little high. Service was quick and everyone was polite. Sat outside did a lot of people watching due to San Juan celebration a lot of security around.
