We ate four meals here – three breakfasts and one lunch. We were lucky to have had Mateo as our waiter for all but one occasion. Mateo is the pinnacle of class service and a gentleman to boot – the perfect match for Patio to Nispero. The setting really can’t be beat. While some might complain that it’s outside and... More

Why three stars and not two: Amazing setting, great location in Old San Juan, right across from the oldest church in the Americas (1521, then rebuilt in 1540), El Convento is a converted convent first built in 1634 and then rehabbed in 1962 by Woolworth (and then again in 1990). The courtyard is quiet and a wonderful place to sit.... More

My husband and I went here for lunch after mass at the Catedral. I liked the quiet, historic atmosphere of the patio. The mofongo was very good, but I will admit I was starving so take that with a grain of salt!

Beautiful place to sit for a relaxed lunch. On such a hot day you sit among the trees and the wind it's very refreshing. We ordered the mofongo with chicken and mojitos. It was delicious !! The service was a little slow until we spoke with our waiter and told him we had to get to the ship by a... More

The tacos are seriously incredible- try them! This restaurant was located in our hotel, so we went for lunch twice. The second time I had the chicken sandwich, which was fine, but not amazing. Service was always great and the patio is beautiful. Ask for a spot in the shade and enjoy a Chi Chi if you're in the mood... More
