Great authentic Restaurant

Did not give a great rating because of the wait time. Waited well over an hour to be seated in the small but quaint restaurant. the food is good however the service is very slow Given that I would revisit it

I went with my family yesterday and the ambiance and food was perfect . I've been to Raíces more than 5 times over the years and the staff was as friendly as always. I definitely recommend the "Mofongo relleno de Churrasco al Chimichurri" and the "Queso Frito"

The food here is really quite good. The atmosphere and customer service are welcoming and on spot. In a good spot geographically (Old San Juan) and close to the square where there is music and salsa dancing!

Raices is being open for 10 or more years ,they had different location .We went to Caguas and they offer a look regarding PR in 1930 .The food is delicious and the service is outstanding . Ask for the stuffed mofongo with anything and you won't regret it.

If you want to try something amazing and authentic you have to try their mofongo!!!!!! All are delicious but the steak and shrimp with chimmichurri is seriously heaven!!! We will eat here every single stop to Puerto Rico!!

This place is always busy for a reason. It's good. May not be the best at local food, but it does it very well. Great and easy location to get to, nice theme inside, prices are great, and service is great too. My favorite dish is the Kan Kan Pork chop, rice, and tostones. Can't wait to go again.

Hubby found positive recommendations for this local restaurant in Old San Juan and it did NOT disappoint. Always busy, we got their early in the evening to make sure we didn't have to wait. Servers were friendly and attentive. Even though we seated in the middle of the restaurant (they have outdoor seating as well), we felt cozy. Food was... More
