This was my one our first meals to Puerto Rico and boy did it not disappoint! So many things were on point with our experience here, we came here after checking into our nearby hotel, based on the recommendation of our bartender at the hotel. The staff was so amazing! So friendly and helpful with selecting our food to even... More

I stopped in for a fast lunch, and absolutely loved the food. The service was amazing also – very fast. The garlic shrimp and vanilla flan were especially good.

Hi!!! We are so happy that you enjoyed your lunch with us yesterday! The name of the Rest makes reference to a classic Cuban dish called Ropa Vieja. Its Cuban style shredded Flank Steak. Its a must try!! Hope to see you again in our Rest. Cheers! More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the hotel. It was just a quick stroll from our hotel (Condado Plaza) and our large group of 12 loved it. They had a large table ready for us. The service was good and the food was excellent. I do not think it was overpriced at all. It was delicious. Portions were big... More

not a diverse menu, but everything was well prepared, above average service, the arroz con pollo was excellent - chicken was tender flavorful and juicy, mojitos were inconsistent - some good some not good, jamon croquettes were very good, salad was uninteresting, filet medallions were NOT what you might expect in the US but pounded thin, they were good

We were told by a local while strolling on Calle Magdalena that Ropa Vieja was a place to experience typical Puerto Rican Cuisine. Nice looking place. Soon discovered that it is not in the cheap eats category. I opted to order one of the cheaper dishes the Picadillo Criollo - basically ground beef in a tomato sauce base with finely... More

My first dinner in San Juan was unforgettable because I ate here. Maybe a little pricey but worth it. The namesake dish is the the way to go.

Watch out, hotels seem to like sending all the new comers there and it is pricy! Was there the first day and paid about $25 bucks per person.

It's a nice place with good food. I really was looking for a wow factor but just could not find it at this visit. Tried some of the appetizers and was hoping for that little twist but the food is the same that you would find at a typical place. I could be me but for the price I need... More
