We sat at the bar and had a great dinner while watching our gracious bartender work his magic! The hostess got us in, because the weather was threatening. Carli played great jazz with his group, and it is a small and intimate setting. My pasta was delicious and my friend had apricot chicken that he loved. Best to have reservations,... More

Loved this dinner on our first night in San Juan. Cozy, romantic setting with live piano. Gorgonzola ravioli was decadent! Friendly service and great drinks. We really enjoyed our time there.

Music started at about 8 PM and there is a different type of music each... More

We visited Caril's last week and got the last table outside. I had the seared tuna which was superb. It was a busy evening so the service was a little slow, but we were not in any hurry. The wine was delicious. A little pricey, but it is fine bistro so you pay for what you get. I would go... More

Food selections were interesting and good. Service was outstanding. Very casual with live music both outside and inside. Had been recommended by staff at Monastery Art Suites a few blocks away and we consider it a good recommendation.
