Best atrium in Viejo San Juan! This is the place to gather your thoughts as you prepare for your day and for relaxing as you return to your special hotel before discovering the nightlife after those cruise people have sailed on.

My family & I spent a week after the Christmas holidays in Puerto Rico to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday. I contacted Ruben Alvarez @ Patio del Nispero in the El Convento Hotel about arranging a special birthday dinner for us. We arrived at 8 pm & everything had been arranged; the table was set & waiting, there was flamenco music playing in the background, and there was even a full moon that night that we could see from our table since it was in the open air. The meal was delicious & the service was impeccable! Ruben had arranged for a birthday cake for us and he had even arranged to have a special dessert for 2 of our family who have special diets! I would recommend the Patio del Nispero to anyone who wants to enjoy fine dining in Old San Juan. Muchas Gracias Ruben!

If they are busy, the quality of both service and food plummets. If you are there during a lull, it's better. Tony was the best server: both professional and attentive. Stay away during the Holiday season.

Went here for lunch. Shady and cool, the food was excellent. I had the Churrasco which is pretty good everywhere in San Juan but definitely delicious here. The bartender makes the best mojito's you've ever had. Not too sweet but delicious and refreshing. Definitely a good place to stop and take a break if you are touring old town.

This restaurant was a great stopping place for lunch when scoping out Old San Juan. It's located inside one of the nicer hotels (Hotel Del Convento). A tip, the restaurant is actually located inside of the hotel's inner corridor. It's easiest to access the restaurant from the main entrance to the hotel.

The menu is limited but everything on it looked great and what we had was amazing. The bartenders are great and can whip you up just about any cocktail you're in the mood for.

As a tip, if it's going to rain, or it is rainy, check out this place. They have this portion of the restaurant nicely covered so even though you're "outdoors" you're totally covered and free to eat and drink to your heart's content.
