Really enjoyed the side portion of Mufungo. Red beans and rice were also very good. Very local and close to hotels, it was an easy walk and very energetic atmosphere

Thank you Heineken for sponsoring this incredible music venue; Umberto Ramirez and his ensemble are outstanding jazz musicians, some Boston conservatory trained. At the end, we ALL got to enjoy a piece of birthday cake from one of the musicians.

The food wasn't terrible but certainly not good. Not off or anything but bland. Overpriced for the quality. But our server was really nice, friendly and fun.

It's pricey but everything is on this strip. Very convenient and walking distance from the Marriott on Condado beach (highly recommend). That glider tables were a nice quirky touch. Our waiter was nothing short of spectacular! His name escapes me unfortunately (glen?). I ordered the dinosaur sized pork chop (with attached ciccarones). It was a tad bit over cooked but... More

Great food and delicious drinks but the service could use some work. Waited to get on the reservation list, waited to get seated and Waited almost 2 hours for our meal but the appetizers were great (try the pumpkin fritters...to die for!)and they were served promptly. Mojitos and sangria were great!

Walked up on a busy Saturday night, and was immediatly seated in the "swinging table". That itself was great. Food was terrific and arrived timely but not too early. The waiter helped my wife with her special drink and encouraged me to try the new 50 Pound gin they had. Restaurant is very lilvely but not over powering loud, the... More

It really doesn't get any better than Yerba Buena. We ate there 2 times during our short 4 day visit in San Juan. Caridad Perez quickly became our buddy and really did a terrific job of taking care of us. We arrived late for dinner our first time there. Caridad was very warm and said come on in. That was...

My party attempted to get a table at Yerba Buena several times during our trip. We had multiple failiures that we attributed to it being a busy time of the year. In fact, one evening the staff would not even allow us to put our name in a wait for a table, we were told we simply were not going... More

I've been to Puerto Rico several times and being Puerto Rican, I know and love good Latin flavors. This is a PR/Cuban spot and the meals we tried were dead on. The menu changes so I can't speak for what you'll find, but the steak was incredible. They do have live music on occasion. It's loud and festive, so call... More

This PR/Cuban restaurant was excellent and one of the best dinners we had on our vacation. We have two gluten free allergies in our group, and the waiter was extremely knowledgeable about all of the dishes. We particularly appreciated that all of the fried dishes are cooked separately - roots, plantains and breaded foods are all fried in separate friers... More
