Excellent Mofongo

Stopped by for lunch while in port last week. I had the chicken Mofango and my husband had the shrimp Mofango. My son had pasta with chicken. I had a Mango Mojito that was perfect. Husband had Pina Colada. It too was very good. The quality of the seafood was the best we have had anywhere and... read more

We stopped in off the street after a tour at Castillo San Cristobal. What a pleasant surprise. The food was some of the best we've had, the mojitos were delicious and the service was great. Highly recommend.

Another good meal here and I'll be back agan next year when I visit. There is both indoor and outdoor seating, both offer different experiences. The Ahi-tuna and sweet plantains is my favorite. The staff was friendy and we were served promptly during our lunch visit.

Very expensive for how little and low quality food you get. Also, it took too long to make so we ended up very frustrated and had to take it to go. Extremely dissapointing and I would not recomend it.

Cafe Berlin has a large & well marked vegetarian menu & staff are knowledgeable. Located in Old San Juan, it is close to things to see & do. We had Spicy Tacos, Criollo Tofu & a mojito, & were satisfied with the service & food. Prices are slightly on the high end. I recommend dining here.

We stopped here for breakfast on a Sunday morning. There weren't that many places opened yet. It's a nice place and service was good, but the food was overpriced.

This was our first foray into the restaurant scene in Old San Juan on our first day out of the Frozen Mainland. We stopped there for some appetizers around 5PM prior to our 9PM dinner (Spanish time). We sat at the outside tables and just watched the flow of life in the Columbus plaza across the street with the sunburned... More

We loved Old San Juan.We stopped at Cafe Berlin for lunch. The service was outstanding. We ordered the 3 main Puerto Rican foods they had on the menu for our lunches, and they were excellent. They have this Healthy Mix beverage that was the bomb. They fixed it for me without the sweetener, and it was delicious. I look forward... More

We visited today and had really good food and a smoothie made with fruit and rum called manjito.... Really good. The service was excellent. Price was a little too hight hence the 4 vs 5. I do recommend it. Great experince, but be ready for a $50 plus for 2 simple meals.
