“Great location, food, staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Great tapas, decent drinks, friendly staff. Eat out on the patio for a more quiet dinner -- great for people watching too! Go inside for drinks, music and a more lively atmosphere. Some nights they have live salsa music. We ate there twice in one trip and it was great both times!

“Looking for high energy loud bar/”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

You found it ! Tapa's and drinks are good. Outdoor seating for a more quiet atmosphere while people watching on Ashford Avenue. Wouldn't go out of my way but a nice pit stop.

“Good Pit Stop While Walking Ashford Avenue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

We stumbled upon Bar Gitano during our first night in San Juan. We were staying at the La Concha Resort and decided to take a walk down Ashford Ave to explore the area. The place is pretty small but they had a little patio where we decided to sit and order some tapas , sip a few drinks and people watch. The food was really good and no complaints on the service. There was a police officer just on the corner which made the area feel very safe since there were quite a few party people walking the sidewalks that evening. We enjoyed our quick stop here but wouldn't go out of the way to return. There are just too many other great food options in the area.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

We have been to Barcelona, and this is very good tapas. The potato bravas was excellent, and the cheese and ham board was straight from Spain. The fish tacos and jerk chicken were more local and very good. Order several things, share, and try not to hurry. Must visit.

“Nice atmosphere and drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

Great place to try for drinks and tapas. We had a nice time but were not wowed with the cuisine: While everything was nicely prepared and the service was great, there are so many superb options in the Condado that this one left us a bit underwhelmed.
