This place is amazing! The red snapper was brilliant and the fried beef filet with eggs was just as good. Service is quick and pleasant. There is no alcohol here so bring your own.

Wow, what a meal! The food here is outstanding, and well worth the wait. My favorite was the baby snapper appetizer - we actually went back two days later to have it again. Drinks were also delicious, and we felt the prices were very reasonable. Highly recommend this restaurant - would great for a date night or even bigger groups.... More

My fiancé and I visited on a Saturday night. I enjoyed the laid back atmosphere and the fact that there were no tvs in the restaurant was nice. No distractions, just really good food!

Great experience, great service and of course the food! Had sausage appetizer and yellowtail. 👍 Make sure to get there early to be put on the first seating, BYOB. Hang for the block party across the street after dinner. Put PR in a different light for me, can't wait to go back. Highly recommend if visiting San Juan

Worth the wait! Get your wine from Asere. Phenomenal. The ambiance along with traditional Puerto Rican flavor gives this location an almost Quantum Leap feel. You will not regret the flopping on the plate while they bring it out flounder!

I came across Jose Enrique on Yelp (btw the hours are incorrect there) and we decided to try it on a whim. We got there super early and was able to put our name down for the first seating at 6:30. By 6:20 there is a long line outside of this understated, no sign restaurant. The food was INCREDIBLE. my... More

My boyfriend and I were recommended this restaurant by his cousin when we went to San Juan. It is located in Santurce, in La Placita, which is like blocks of bars and a market. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays we were told is pretty busy and the streets are filled. Jose Enrique does not take reservations so if you are going... More

Jose Enrique was on my top 5 restaurant on the island , the best fried yellowtail fish I had in my life was here the first time. But the service and the quality of food is not anymore there. The administrative problems of the Chef has taken its toll on the restaurant perse, maybe he put all his mind on... More

Dinner was delicious as always. But we we're a disappointed at the lack of creativity that we have grown acustom to over the past 5 years. And BYOB???? Hostess graciously directed is to a neighboring restaurant to purchase a bottle of wine. Good enough but not as good as what we had in the past at Jose Enrique. Up shot,... More
