We had salads for our dinner. My husbands was good, even though they substituted an element without asking. My salad - two main ingredients were missing. Ten minutes later by the time they came back, I was told they ran out of one of the ingredients and forgot the other. I would have ordered another salad had they come to... More

What an incredible find! This is a Puerto Rican twist on a French bistro. We went for Sunday brunch and I'm glad we arrived early as it's a small restaurant and fills up quickly with locals. The food was fresh and wonderful. The fresh fruit plate of bananas and tropical fruit was drizzled with honey and granola and was incredible.... More

We liked everything we ordered at St. Germain. The rum amaretto cake was especially delicious. The waiter was friendly. We plan to go back for Sunday brunch.

I have never had anything that was not excellent. This visit it was the salad with pesto chicken and garbanzo salad. My daughter loved her ham and... More

St. Germain is our favorite place to eat in Old San Juan! The food was wonderfully fresh and healthy; a surprising and delightful alternative to deep-fried Puerto Rican fare. The bright and cheerful decor matched the the food and drinks - naturally inviting. The super warm and friendly staff found the perfect balance between hustle and authentic conversation; between comfy-casual... More

We were vacationing in Puerto Rico last week and wanted to see old San Juan. Before we made the short drive we searched on tripadvisor for a good place for lunch and chose St Germain Bistro & Cafe. We were so impressed, that we went back a second time on our next visit to the old town. The grouper and... More

Four of us had a superb lunch here today. Two of us had the lunch special with quiche, Romano salad, and basil lemonade all for $14. Delish and large portions.
