Referred here by concierge.
Mofongo was very good. Try the Medalla beer.
Very busy with locals and tourists filling the place.

We enjoyed the food, live music and the view from the upstairs balcony. Everyone was friendly and the service was excellent.

We were on a cruise that stopped in San Juan.
We ate at Cafe Puerto Rico and wanted to eat authentic Puerto Rican food so we stopped there. The restaurant is a bit small but has a very nice terrace seating outside.
Our waiter was a very nice girl who spoke perfect english and recommended ordering Mofongos. I ordered plantain Mofongo with shrimp and my wife got sweet plantain mofongo with steak and both dishes were awesome!
All in all. Great food and service and great outside seating view in the heart of Old San Juan

The food was simply terrible. The chicken hd no flavor and the dishes had so much salt that it almost burned your mouth. The rice was dry and the black beam soup was aweful. Worst of all, we all had stomach problems a few hours after our meal. Don't go here.
