Had to ask the waitress 3 times for service. Waited for more than 22 minutes to order 4 drinks. And customer service is not one of their strongest points here. No apologies once they arrived to take our order. Unbelievable!!!

While a limited choice, everything we selected was delicious. The mint ice cream tasted like it was made with real mint. In the evening the coquís are chirping away. Best of all the servers are warm and welcoming.

Ate in the courtyard for lunch. Menu was small but the items offered covered everything from salads to seafood, and even hamburgers. I can definitely recommend the seafood and rice for two, the pizza, and the burger, along with a tasty mojito.

Cab can't be more than $10. It's also a lovely walk and you should walk a lot in Old San Juan. The city is small and delightful. I don't think you will need a reservation but you could call ahead just to feel better.
