Authentic Puerto Rico

Was highly recommended by a doctor who grew up in PR and now lives in the states and he was spot on. The food was delicious, the staff was very friendly and the locals were very helpful and gracious. Four adults shared 3 different dishes to experience as much as we could. Be sure to walk around old... read more

This restaurant is very authentic Puerto Rican. The food is not cheap, but it is delicious! The staff are very professional and friendly. They wear authentic clothing which adds to the atmosphere.

Had to wait a little bit, but they have some outdoor seating. Picked on some Sorullos. Had a Mofongo with Churassco Steak and a Mojito....mmmm My brother had the Mofongo with Shrimp. Don't forget the Chuleta Kan Kan.

Upon hearing a stellar recommendation from someone we met at our hotel we decided to have lunch at Raices in San Juan. The ambience was very unusual and thoughtful It represented the different races on the island. The service was attentive and friendly. I had a rather large pork chop with beans and rice and Judy had shrimp mofongo. The... More

Went there for dinner last night and ordered pechuga a la nydia and the mahi mahi shrimp and both were delicious. I can't describe it any other way. Both my husband and I kept commenting on how delicious. The waiters are also in the traditional Puerto Rican dress which makes it a fun experience too. We loved it and would... More

I thought the food was nothing out of the ordinary, but did like the outdoor dining! The staff was attentive but I expected more from the food since it had been recommended by a friend.

Ambiance is really nice, reminiscent of the rural areas of PR. The food is ok, nothing special or memorable. Service is hit or miss, sometimes very good and at other times extremely slow. My family seems to this place.

We tried to go for lunch at 230, but the line was crazy long. We tried again for dinner at 7 and the place was empty. The food was some of the best we have had in OSJ. The fried cheese was to die for and my husband and I split the bacon wrapped chicken stuffed with yucca and garlic... More

We had asked someone at our hotel where they would recommend we go for a great Puerto Rican meal and he recommended Raices. There was a small wait, about 15 minutes. The drinks were OK, I switched to a classic drink after having 1 sangria. The appetizers were amazing - we go fried cheese and a veggie/meat wrap. I got... More
