I met the owner of this restaurant when we were on an island and all out of drinks and she gave us beer, not knowing us at all and not expecting us to pay her. She told us this is her restaurant so on our next trip to San Juan we made sure to visit. We had no idea how... More

We went to Verde Mesa our first night in Old San Juan. After a long flight and drive, it was rainy when we arrived. The restaurant that was recommended by the hotel was closed, so we took to "trip advisor" for "near me" and found Verde Mesa....SO GLAD! I had what was probably the BEST salmon I have ever had...

We had the salmon and the swordfish, which both was very tasty, but super small portions and cost about $28 each. Also, I like beer with my food, and then I want a lager (not ipa or ale). But they didn't have that at all. Service was very good though. All in all - for about $40 per person for... More

When we visited this restaurant 2 years ago we were blown away. When we returned this time around, this is the first restaurant we wanted to go to. It's still just as amazing. The venue, the menu and the service is top notch. Hats off to Paula for explaining each dish in great detail and for the patience to repeat... More

This place is awesome!!! It is very small and quirky but the service is great and the food is amazing. The tasting place is a must for an appetizer and definitely have the meringue dessert. All of the choices for mains looks awesome and I had the chickpea curry which was wild! There are standard menu options but they also... More

Had a wonderfully cozy dinner at Verde Mesa with my mother and we were both so very happy with the whole experience. It is a vegetarian restaurant but they serve some fish dishes. As starters we had the Ceviche and Aubergine which I cannot say enough good things about, so fresh and tasty! For main course we had the portobello... More

I went here to enjoy my birthday dinner looking at other reviews it seemed it would be a positive experience. Wrong! The servers and host could not have been nicer, but the timeliness of food was appalling. It is beautiful inside, a small friendly and quaint environment, the menu choices were different and creative but definately not worth the $$$... More
