“drinks and service were perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

We stumbled on Nono's while walking around Old San Juan, and it turned into one of the highlights of our trip.

Luis was a very skilled and knowledgeable bartender, in addition to being a hospitable host for the afternoon. He served a delicious, fresh mojito, and helped educate us on the rums of Puerto Rico.

We returned a couple days later to watch a basketball game, and the staff was very accommodating and professional - as we have come to expect!

“Great dive bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Good, (nicer) dive bar option if you are in Old San Juan. As other reviewers mentioned, it's very breezy inside, which is nice on a hot day. We stopped here before dinner for a drink. Just a note, they do not have any food options if you are looking for a snack.

“A godsend during the 2012 NLCS & World Series!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

Our wedding in San Juan took place in the midst of the 2012 NLCS & World Series. For all you baseball fans out there, you know how important it is to root for your team...even when you're on vacation! We went to Nono's almost every night to watch the Giants play & the bartenders/staff were so accommodating & good to us! Take for example the night the Giants clinched the title - our friends got it into their heads that we should all have pizza with our alcohol, so the bartender went next door to La Tortuga to get us some! I will always make it a point visit Nono's when I'm in San Juan!

The atmosphere is what made me walk inside this Bar. The Mojitos are excellent probably the best I've ever had :) the ambiance and music makes you whant to stay. I have to say I loved this place! it's a great place to sit and get drunk!! the bartenders knew their trade and made excellent drinks. They also serve food!!

“fantastic neighborhood bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2012

the bartenders here are awesome, the service is great. very friendly. JR is my favorite bartender and Edgar is excellent too. If you come for the San Sebastian festival this place is definitely hopping, but other times the crowds come and go in waves. My favorite spot in Old San Juan
