This is a hidden gem in Isla Verde. From the outside it may not look very appealing, but let that not deceive you. We went here on our first night in San Juan, after which we tried several restaurants all over for one whole week (including some high rated very expensive ones); but nothing else could top the experience we had in El Estribo. The moment we walked in, we were made to feel like home. The place was small but warm and cozy. The servers were super friendly and checked up on us every now and then to make sure we were comfortable. The food was excellent. House Sangria was refreshing. We ordered Chicken Turnovers for appetizers which turned out pretty good. Estribo Chicken for entree was amazing. The best part of the restaurant was the owner, who played guitar and sang Spanish songs through the evening. He stopped by every table and engaged everyone in conversations; even offered free shots to some! What a perfect host!!!
Do not miss this place in your visit to San Juan.
