Best Peruvian style "ceviche" in Puerto Rico.

There are many Peruvian restaurants in San Juan, but no one comes close to the quality of the "ceviche" served by the Ceviche House in Isla Verde. Close to the Isla Verde hotel strip, the Ceviche House's been open for quite some time and has a very loyal clientele. The fried green plantains... read more

The place has a huge echo effect. Very difficult to talk. Drunk group next to us laughing like teenagers. The Ceviche was too salty. No Yuca or Breadfruit tostones. I've had better Ceviche in PR.

I love ceviche. So when a friend recommended this place I justhad to try it. Restaurant: It is located at a cornes on Isla Verde ave. Parking is an issue. No a lot of spaces available. It is a small place. I believe it's in need of a little renovation. Bathrooms are right in front of tables, so everyone that... More

Love their food, service, and atmosphere. Definitely one of the best local spots on Isla Verde avenue. Parking is an issue, but it is worth it!

My wife and I have been going to the Ceviche House for a lot of years and have always considered it the best ceviche in the San Juan area. However, on our last visit we both had the Shrimp Ceviche and the portion sizes have been reduced by about 50% (with no reduction in price). The food is still great,... More

All I can say is Wow! This was one of the best ceviche I've had. The food was amazing and the drinks great. We went on a Saturday night around 9:30pm and the wait was long, about 45-50 minutes, but worth it. I can see why so many people were dining here. I must eat here again on my next... More

This restaurant is always busy. The food is outstanding, especially the calamari appetizer and the churrasco. The service is very inconsistent. Call for reservations, because if you don't everyone else will be seated before you, regardless of when you arrived. We were told the wait would be 1/2 hour but it turned into 1 and 1/2 hours! Would have left... More

We have a tiny Maltese licensed service dog who is admitted everywhere but not here. My husband noticed a table for two outside at the entry and we sat there. The mixed fish ceviche was superb as were the monitored.empanadillas.and the tostones So the innovation worked but not for another try.
