Just came back from this place, and quite surprise how its rated as 4* in trip advisor.
I've waited a couple minutes at the entrance, and no one came. So i entered and tried to call a waiter's attention to have a table, the guy didn't even saw my face and just pointed out an open table.
Ok, i don't expect the man to ask me how I am doing or being overly friendly, but i expect to have a normal conversation at least.
Anyways, took the menu and looked for the seafood options, as written in the awning (can see in the picture), and another surprise. Where's the seafood??? Basically there were only italian options. If there was a different menu for seafood, no one provided me.
So ordered a penne with meatballs and a salad. A beer for drink.
Salad came early, too acid imo. Also no idea what dressing they used, but wasnt good.
Drank all the beer, the waiter saw the empty bottle and... Nothing. I would ask another one but at that time, just wanted to eat and get out.
The main dish came, and they almost put me a gnoch instead. Had to say that i ordered the meatball dish. Ok, happens.
And.. The meatball itself was ok.. Had much better ones in other restaurants around the world. But what frustrated me was the penne. Clearly it was those cheap pasta from regular supermarkets.
For a restaurant that advertizes as italian, i would expect at least a handmade pasta, not that cheap ones anyone can make at home.
The price at least was cheaper than the average in the region for a meal, which is why i gave 2*, not 1.
Anyway won't be back and don't recommend. I really think that they rely on regular customers to have this overall positive review. Mostly older customers and/or families. Maybe they do provide a better service for groups, I don't know.
Worst experience in San Juan at this point after a week here.
