We are visiting from Greenville, SC and we chose Carli's for dinner due to the live music and menu. We sat at the bar and Fausto was excellent from start to finish. His awesome personality made our experience great! The food was outstanding as well. Thanks Fausto for the amazing dinner! Hasta luego.

We dropped in after a sunset sailboat tour for a light dinner as we had appetizers on the boat. We ordered half orders of the risotto. Risotto was excellent but the half order is tiny. 1/4 cup of rice with 2 tiny pieces of beef. Get the full order. We asked for a wine list and the waitress just listed... More

Good service and location, but the prices are out of control. They charged $9 for a bottle of sparkling water. With so many nice places in San Juan and so much good food everywhere, we certainly do not recommend this place.

My wife discovered this place while planning our vacation to the island. On the outside it doesn't not look like much and on the inside it is a little small but definitely with a cozy feel to it. The wait staff is really friendly and courteous. The food is delicious without a doubt. I ordered Mahi Mahi and beef tenderloin... More

We discovered Carli's on tour of downtown. Very upscale and classy! The food was amazing! We enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The service was subpar, we waited a long time for our check and had to ask for it.
