For the Condado area I like Ropa Vieja Grill (Cuban / Puerto Rican) gets very busy on weekend evening.

Or take a taxi into Old San Juan and try any of these:

Tantra (indian cusine)

Parrot Club




Tapas bar in El Convento

If you really feel like splashing out there is Pikayo in the Museum de Arte close to Condado / Isla Verde. Don't let the fact that the restaurant is in the museum put you off; this is supposed to be one of the best places to eat in Puerto Rico.

When you are not eating, check out http://www.visit-the-coqui.com for more ideas for PR

Since you are arriving early evening and need to rewind after your flight I would suggest to stay in Condado, try Ajili Mojili for a first introduction to Puerto Rican food. Then try these other great suggestions, I am just trying to be practical since it's your first night. If you feel up for Entertainment, check out the Marriott Hotel for dancing
