Every Colonial town around the world has European roots and Local flair. This restaurant has a menu to match. It is extensive. Me and My Panda arrived for a wedding and were tired, confused, and so anxious to eat, we were getting "Hangry" = hungry & angry! (Nothing cute about a Hangry Panda). We... read more

After years walking by your restaurant I decided to have breakfast... My wife ordered the eggs Benedict and no complaints here... Since I'm a big fan of apples and maple syrup I ordered the "Berlin Pancakes" and they're were nothing but regular pancakes served with Aunt Jemima syrup... I suggest changing the name to "Good Ole Ant Jemima" Pancakes

Had lunch here with friends. The food, decor and the finesse was amazing. Its a mix of local and fusion cuisine with lots of vegetarian options. The cocktail with herbal tea and brandy was fantastic. One of the best meals I have had in a long time. Would absolutely recommend it and come back if I had a chance.

We had planned to eat at a different restaurant that had been recommended. However, while walking along, we were hungry and discovered Berlin Cafe. The food was delicious and I'm still yearning for another mango mojito...the best mojito I've EVER had!

Cafe Berlin was our first restaurant in Puerto Rico. After a 10-hour flight, the food here does not disappoint. The pollo al ajillo was excellent, and I can't get over the authentic taste of the seafood mofongo. Love it!

The food at Cafe Berline is very good. It's never been an issue and while it's not cheap, it's about right for old San Juan which is a popular tourist destination... so expect to pay more and you should because everything in old San Juan is great except the Taxi service which is terrible, which is another problem. The staff... More
