    Nice atmosphere. Attentive though not overly friendly service. Very mediocre food. I had shrimp in vodka sauce. My hubby had Creole grouper which he really didn’t like. .

    Ordered calamari for an appetizer, terrible! Other food was not good either. Just a tourist place to loose $100. Open air so the bugs tore me up!

    Jorge and the team are phenomenal. Food was outstanding and very friendly staff. Fascinating history of the building. The best of Old San Juan!

    Do not eat here! Easily one of the worst meals I’ve ever had. The fish tasted frozen, and was overcooked to the point of being inedible and made me sick. The sauce was horrible, so they kindly sent it back with a new sauce which was even worse. Risotto was undercooked and the lobster in it was inedible, endlessly chewy and filled with cartilage. The fried calamari also tasted frozen and was deep fried in dirty oil giving it a burnt old frier taste. I don’t know how they can claim to be a seafood restaurant serving food like that. Even the sangria was terrible. The manager was reasonable and only charged us for some items but I still would not return. Would give zero stars if I could.

    The restaurant is a wonderfully quiet escape from the bustle of Old San Juan. The ambience reminds me of an old monastery or mansion. There is a not quite internal garden area that is especially nice. The plate that I wanted most, the mofongo with ropa vieja, was not available. However their seafood mofo go was excellent.

    Beautiful restaurant. It’s not a closed building, meaning no AC but wasn’t a problem at all. Food was delicious and drinks very good.
