“Great place for lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2011

The sandwiches are delicious, especially the New Yorker and the Karlox. Prices are great, servers are friendly, we will come back next time we are in Old San Juan!

“Taste of Europe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2011

Daily menu offers tastes of Europe at a price you can visit every day. In fact, it was so good we went two days in a row. Fresh and healthy menu offers tastes you will not get in the US. A gem in old San Juan. Why can't there be places like St Germain back in the US? Oh, just be careful because the fan in the ceiling is blowing quite hard and you may get cold if dressed in shorts and sleeveless shirts.

My husband and I stopped in for lunch while we were visiting Old San Juan. The food was very good and reasonably priced.

“Diamond in the rough...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2011

It was the last night of a 4 night stay in Puerto Rico. My girlfriend and I were not interested in "fine dining" and just wanted a low key place with good drinks. After a quick search on TripAdvisor from my hotel room, we decided to catch a cab to Old San Juan and eat at St. Germain.

What a great decision! The place has amazing food, amazing mojito's, and very charming. They are off the beaten path which adds to the allure. Give this place a try..the food is very reasonable and was the best meal I had in Puerto Rico.

There have been many reviews about the Mojito's here...not sure what they do differently, but they were much better than the ones from other places on the island!
