We happened to be walking by Hacienda don Jose and because the staff outside was so nice, we decided to go in. We were seated right next to a large open window overlooking the water and it felt like we were literally on the ocean. This place really is a gem. The drinks were great and we got peurto rican...

We went to this restaurant by default because the place we had planned to eat was over-crowded. We were pleasantly surprised and enjoyed great service, the food was delicious and the view of the ocean made the total experience amazing!! It doesn't look like much from the outside and even as you step in the door it's not much. But... More

This restaurant is a very short walk from the Hilton Condado Plaza. We had a delicious dinner while watching the waves through their wide open back windows. I tried a traditional Puerto Rican meal, mofongo (mine was with chicken, though you have several options including shrimp). The drinks were awesome too. We had frozen margaritas. The service was extremely helpful,... More

We had our last meal (lunch) here before flying home. A bit pricy for lunch, but the food was excellent as were the pina coladas. Did not care too much for the coffee. We sat by the window and were treated to a spectacular view. Definitely recommend this place.

On a tip from a friend, we stopped by Hacienda Don Jose for a very good ($5) margarita and enjoyed the view. The restaurant's back windows open up to a lovely view of the ocean waves over the rocks. We didn't stay for dinner, but the margarita was nice and the chips and guacamole, while nothing special, hit the spot.... More

When I do Visit PR I try to avoid the over priced restaurants because...I admit it, I'm frugal and... More

Wow! Not only was the food awesome, but i was SO impressed with the customer service. As an individual who works in customer service its always refreshing experiencing it elsewhere. They serve breakfast starting at 8 amso we are headed there now!

We stumbled on to a great place to eat on the Condado in San Juan. We explored local food and enjoyed the ambience as Hacienda Don Jose is on the water front. Great service and great food for the family.

We happened upon this restaurant when our hotel Concierge gave us vague directions to a restaurant that was closed. Discouraged, we wandered in. What a delightful surprise! Friendly staff, great mojito, all of enjoyed our food. Nice local place in the middle of a touristy area - great find!
