Every year we come to San Juan we make time to visit the St. Germain bistro for lunch. They serve a fascinating mix of French and local dishes. Great food at reasonable prices.

Nice place to visit, the food was clean and fresh, vegetarian options, good service. They have a couple menu to choose, but its better to ask for individual plated.

This was absolutely the best meal of this week. We had the mozzarella tower and Cervichi app and both were amazing. Our sandwiches for the New Yorker and the Patrick with chicken and goat cheese added.

We loved it here! Very cute, small cafe! We had lunch, came for drinks - extremely friendly staff, and good drinks (loved their Mojito w/brown sugar !!) Highly recommend for lunch. The other menus looked good, but we just can't speak directly to them.

Small intimate space with fun and interesting decor. The menu is not extensive, but every on it looked great. We really enjoyed the specialty drinks to begin the meal. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Definitely - they offer tons of salads, soups and fruits as an alternate to their baked goods. While I'm not sure if any of their breads are gluten free, they alternative options are delicious.
H - We will be in San Juan on March 13th 2015. We'll be a party of six. Do you accommodate gluten-free celiac diets? There will be one person in our party requiring this. Do you have any example entrees that can be made gluten-free?
