Our Bartender Arlene was amazing. She has a great personality with all her customers. Drinks were great, Must try their Red or White Sangria. And Have her make you a B52 for an extra kick. Sandwiches were also amazing. Cook is super great at her job, makes masterpieces and she is proud of it.

They had a band... Food looked good, I waited 20 min and got no service so we left. I would suggest Punto De Vista.

Very nice place, we sat outside. Very good Sangria (Red) did not try others. My wife had previously been there with friends and was very happy. We shared the Paella and it was delicious. Buen Provecho

It was a rainy evening and I was starving! (There's too much to see in old San Juan and I didn't want to waste time to eat during the day). Towards the end of the evening, I just wanted to have a drink and a little food to go along with it! And I'm so glad that I found this... More

The service was awesome. Thanks to Arlene for taking care of us! The flat bread pizza with Chorizo and cheese was to die for and the ham and cheese crochets were terrific. Toro Salao is a good taste of mexico along with excellent hospitality!!!

Arleen is a creative mixologist who uses passion as her secret weapon. If you're in Old San Juan, ask her for a signature cocktail and you won't be disappointed! Thanks Arleen!
