Ate here after touring the first. We were in need of a cool place to sit down and relax. Imagine our delighted surprise when we ended up in a place know for their mojitos. Many were had, and our hearts and moods were lightened.

We spent all day walking Old San Juan and had planned having dinner in Isla Verde. Before leaving San Juan we found the Cinema Bar and decided to have a drink on the terrace since the view was grandiose. Little did we know the staff...More

We had an appetizers tray, which was delicious. A bit on the pricey side for what it offered, though. The 3 scrumptious fish tacos for $10 are a steal, however. Good drinks and a wonderful view if you seat outside.
