“We ate here twice in 7 days”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

We recently spent 7 days in Puerto Rico staying in an apartment in Old San Juan. This restaurant was on a recommendation list provided by the apartment owners. We tried it the first night and the 4 of us (2 adults 2 teenagers) all loved it....so much so that even though there were tons of restaurants to try, we came back for a second visit in the same week. This is a small restaurant but worth the wait if necessary. The homemade sangrias and juices are worth a try!

“Fantastico!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

This is one of my favorite places ever!!!! My husband and I dined here for lunch & dinner several times during our stay in OSJ. We loved its romantic yet kick back vibe. The food is delicious and extremely fresh! A few of our favorites - Salads - Anne & Cobb, Gourmet Sandwiches - Creole & Tango. The desserts are ridiculously good!!! You must try the Nutella Crepe & Carrot Cake!!!! They also make the best Mojitos in OSJ!! Bonus!!!! Can't say enough great things about the staff! Mayra & the entire staff were so kind, extremely attentive & offered wonderful recommendations and all with beautiful smiles on their faces. We felt like we were among family!! We look forward to our return to St. Germain Bistro! Such a special place!!!!

“Amazing service and amazing food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

My boyfriend and I ate at this cafe on our last night in Old San Juan and we wish we discovered it sooner. We got the "Dinner for two" special and were more than satisfied. The food was great and all the waitresses were incredibly friendly (Vanesa was awesome!). We definitely will be coming back! :)

“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013 via mobile

We went with average expectations and left with above expectations. Their water melon sangria is to die for. Service although a little slow since it was only two people and a lot of clients was good. Food was great and ambience exceptional. Would definitely be back again.

“Healthiest food in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

I've lived in Old San Juan for about six months now and I can't stop coming to this enchanting little restaurant. The food is great, one of the few places you can find vegetarian food in town, and the desserts are amazing. I highly recommend it.
