Old San Juan is beautiful, but can be very noisy with tourists and cars until you come to the area around El Convento. Cafe Esperanza is my secret spot, nearby. They have outside tables fringed by palms on a quiet side street with no traffic, just a beautiful tranquility. They served the best Mohitos I ever tasted, and the owner/chef took special pride in serving the freshest and most delicious meals, with exquisite balsamic vinegar dressings for instance, crafted for each dish. Five star food, at an incredibly reasonable price. A sort of "in the know" kind of place, as we saw "locals" there, rather than just the tourist trade. I am torn in giving them the high marks they deserve, because I when I return, I will certainly want a table there.
