“Recommended by my PR friend”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

It was a great recommendation! Located in the heart of tourist yet all the locals are there. The staff was great and the food even greater! I had the Media Noches a Cuban sandwich but on a sweet bread. It's just good local food!

“Great Local Food”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

While visiting Old San Juan we ate at Siglo XX
The food was great and the service very good also.
We order the squid and rice in ink sauce it was amazing I've had it
in other restaurants but nothing like this very good. Also order the
seafood casserole it comes in a spanish clay style casserole with white rice
and green plantains a real meal with langoustines and allot of seafood.  For dessert we
shared a coconut and cheese flan you got to try the flan very creamy very good.

“Rude Staff”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Sanwiches were ok. They did not take the time to spread the mayo and it was in globs all in one place in the sandwich. Whenever I asked for something...like a drink...the waitress would roll her eyes. Not worth the money to eat here and deal with them.

“Spain in Old San Juan”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

In Spain you find "bars" that also serve very good food but with a menu that is more much limited than in a restaurant. Siglo XX has many of the characteristics of these "bars" but their menu if much more varied, so they are more of a restaurant than a bar. Their menus are not innovative, just simply traditional Spanish cuisine. They make excellent tortillas and their fabadas and chorizos are also excellent. The menu also includes a number of typical puertorrican and cuban dishes, and have several beers that are imported from Spain. The service was very good - the food was served quickly. We plan to visit to again in the near future.

“It'll do in a pinch.”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

We wouldn't go back. Took 10 minutes to get a menu. Then barely had time to decide before he came back. Food came quickly. And had to waive my credit card to have the bill brought to us. They were not vary friendly.
