Great food, but some problems.

We've eaten here yearly when we visit Puerto Rico. We keep coming back because the food is excellent- high quality ingredients, well prepared, with huge portions - plus a fine wine list. Given that, the service can be a bit inattentive & sloppy ("forgot" our vegetable side order this year), the... read more

Francisco, our waiter, was amazing! He provided our best dining experience of the week, and made for a very memorable meal. The food here is fantastic! Definitely worth trying if you are staying at or near the resort. Every staff member was extremely helpful and very polite. Overall, this was one of the best dining experience we've ever had!

Although as others have stated it is a bit over priced. However, we ate there twice during our 7 days in Puerto Rico and enjoyed our meals tremendously each time. I had swordfish puttanesca and the veal chop Milanese. The fish was fresh, firm and the first time with puttanesca sauces. It was simply outstanding. The veal was tender and... More

Right in the lobby of the El San Juan. Excellent service; excellent Italian food. Probably on the expensive side.

This restaurant has a very romantic and cozy atmosphere although it was extremely cold. I had the twin lobster tails in a honey truffle oil. They were cooked perfectly and delicious. The lobster came with a side of pasta which was cold upon arrival (probably due to the air conditioning being set on 55F ?). We also had the eggplant... More

I don't mind paying for a great meal but here the food was fair and the prices were high. For example Shrimp fra diavlo was $49 and it wasn't great. However Service was excellent.

This wonderful restaurant was full of energy and happy waiters. The food is amazing. Several pasta and meat choices. Great apitizers. The veal chop is a favorite. Reservations a must. Close seating proximity to other tables. Service was good, the resaurant was filled. Dessert menu is varied.

This is a great place to bring a date and have an amazing time. I had dinner with a friend and it was very nice. The food was great and the service even better. The server was very knowledgeable on the menu. Will recommend it!
