If only this place had reasonable prices for drinks, I would have given it a four. If I had stayed long enough to have dinner, maybe a five. I couldn't get past the appetizers. At this point, our small party of four, had just 6 drinks or beer and were already at $50.00. Two appetizers added another $20.00. A glass of 12 year old scotch on the rocks was $10.00, and I don't think it was even a full shot. What is this? Spain? For $10.00 I would have expected at least a half glass full of Scotch, not half a shot.
This is a shame because AireNumo is in a privileged section of Old San Juan. At the top of Plaza de la Barandilla just off San Francisco. I'm sure dinner would have been great just by the smells alone. But I'm in the habit of when trying a new place, to try the bar first for drinks and appetizers. See how that goes, then close the tab, and then ask for a table. Sorry, but $70.00 for 2 appetizers and 6 drinks, one of which was just a beer? No thanks.
There are other places in Old San Juan where you can get a good stiff drink for $6.50 or less, which invites you to stay and try more stuff. If AireNumo had better drink prices, I bet it would be much more popular. Maybe the owners don't want to cater to the drinking crowd, and that's fine. If you're not a drinker, give this place a shot. If you're like me who like to enjoy a great meal with good drinks, keep going.
