Not bad

Good Puerto Rican food at reasonable prices. My wife (who is Puerto Rican) and I had dinner here and found it unpretentious and enjoyable. The food was not great, but not bad. We were staying nearby and this place was within easy walking distance. The service is criticized a lot in these... read more

When we were sat down we were offered one menu for a group of four and told to share, meanwhile all the other groups around us had one menu per person. The food was subpar for "Puerto Rican" cuisine in Puerto Rico. The rice was clumpy the pernil was tough the carne frita was ok and the yuca was hard.... More

I'll keep this short. Waiter who served us wasn't the best. He kept forgetting to get us what we asked for. They had the AC on at full and they wouldn't turn it down because it cooled both rooms. My son ended up getting from sick it. With that all being said the food is amazing. Every plate was clean... More

Right across the street from the Intercontinental San Juan. Lots of local people eating there. Breakfast good and prices reasonable. Service extremely slow, but everybody was friendly.

This was our first meal in San Juan after checking in to our hotel and heading out for a late dinner. It was within walking distance and had several signs on the street so we decided to give it a shot. The restaurant seemed dark and cramped. I ordered a mofongo with chicken. After ordering mofongo at other restaurants, Mi... More

The food here is nothing I suggest you plan to do. If you end up at the Mi Casita then fine. It is very tight inside and the food was not like the reviews said. I could have went on a bad night. Spend your money somewhere else.
