Nestled in the heart of Old San Juan.My husband and I visited for lunch. The ambience reflects historical Puerto Rico. Artifacts of history hung from the walls. Floor to ceiling art work and murals depicted late 1800 life. The food was tasty and filling.interesting lunch there 12:30, we had no desire for dinner later. I'd definitely visit Raices again.

Authentic Puerto Rican Food, I enjoyed it every second there. The drinks was A+ so delicious, and the food for kids was so good.

Had a long wait for horrible food!! Definitely a tourist trap. Best thing was the strawberry margaritas. The hostess was very rude but our servers we very nice. Food was way over priced for what you get. I would not recommend to friends, in fact I'd advise to stay away.

When we arrived there was a 20min wait while other places on the same street wee almost empty. We waited the 20min and it was worth the wait! The food was great!!! There is a family atmosphere and the staff is friendly. The food is outstanding! A bit pricey but definitely the place to be for a nice dinner. LOVED... More

Raices is centrally located in the heart of Old San Juan. The menu is authentic Puerto Rican food. The food isn't cheap, but stop by just to say you've been here. The piña coladas are really good and service is excellent.

My husband and I went to Raíces, even that people at the hotel advice us not to. We went anyway. ....what a dissatisfaction! The wait was over an hour, my plantain soup was cold, the Arroz mamposteao that my husband ordered was undercooked and cold! The restaurant is not the same at what was years ago. Don't waste your time... More

This is an OK restaurant, more like a tourist trap but for the locals it is not the best deal and quality.

We were sent here by multiple locals as a great restaurant and they were right. The food was good and the local flavor was fun. Only thing not excellent was the service which was a bit slow..but whoopedie doo, I recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for local food.

Food was not that impresive, there are better places to eat the type of food they serve. Service is poor, we had to wait 2 hours to get our main course. The restaurant was full but people was leaving because they didn't get their order on time. I don't recommend this place.

Heard about this restaurant from some friends and decided to pay a visit. What immediately strikes you is this is by far and away the busiest place on the street, with lots of people waiting to get in - a good sign. Managed to get a table after a short wait. All the staff were incredibly friendly and dressed in... More
