Stopped into this little place after touring El Moro and Old San Juan. We had dinner reservations elsewhere but wanted a little something to tide us over. We sat in their outdoor area and ordered a few Sangrias that were well made. They offer 4 different types of Sangria which was nice to try different versions of the Spanish beverage.... More

They have a nice little outdoor seating the evening my wife and I went there. Nice wine selection. Had some good sangria there. Had a nice band playing outside, till it started raining. Then we went inside and sat at the bar and ate. My wife raved over the three cheese dip. Service was a little on the slow side,... More

My boyfriend and I enjoyed a late dinner at Toro and despite the rain we sat outside under the well covered outdoor seating area. I had the flat iron steak with delicious roasted potatoes. He had clay pot chicken and we both split the empanadillas appetizer. I highly recommend for a couples night out!

The name describes the food perfectly " high blood pressure sufferers stay away" and if you don't have "HBP" you surely will after eating here! This place boasts about having great sangria "NOT SO". The location is pretty good and the live music band a plus. The wait staff was a bit shaky but it is not their fault as... More

I went with my vegan parents & the chef make them a special meal just for them. My husband & I got the seafood paella, really good, the portion is good for 2 . I also recommend the sangria with champagne was really tropical & refreshing!!!

Arlene is an absolute doll, and was very impressive in her abilities. John Taffer would want to clone her!!! The restaurant is quaint and delivers a local flair. A must stop, and ask for Arlene.. she'll hook you up!!!

Waitress dropped drink on both of us. Other than that, not bad. Had hummus and empanadas. Sat outside. Not sure about indoor.

Nice good tapas with a creative twist since they are not genuine Spanish tapas. Somewhat they try to make it more fancy for the tapas. For that you have pricey items. Have been ther a few times. But I find it convenient for a first stop prior to hanging out in Old San Juan.

Kids loved it! Super Friendly, fun atmosphere during SOFO festival. Joel C runs a tight ship. Beef Chorizo sliders, empanadillos, flank steak and mahi mahi. Homemade hot sauce perfect. Highly recommend it.

This time we decide to go for Tapas, and also informed the waitress that we had only an hour for dinner before our concert at the Teatro Tapia. We started with the ibizan mahi, mahi, tacos, one for each of us. The tacos are an interesting blend of tastes, and delicious. Excellent choice. We also ordered the iberica queso manchego... More
