    Anchor Inn and Restaurant: Mofongo Delight in Fajardo

    by paralee Written Jan 16, 2009

    Kind of in the middle of nowhere, but worth the drive if you can find it. The mofongo can not be missed and Anchor Inn really puts a different spin on it. Covered in gravy and stuffed with chicken. It also comes with salad and garlic bread and the home-made vinaigrette is amazing. The other dressing is definitely a ketchup and mayonnaise. In the end it is quite more than you could want for lunch which is when we went. Also, prices are a bit steep for lunch as they only have the one menu (no separate lunch and dinner menus).
    Kind of funny that there are cloth table cloths and napkins yet plastic chairs. It is also a nice temperature inside since they just use fans instead of the industrial AC that cools every other restaurant to 50 degrees in Puerto Rico.

    Favorite Dish: The chicken filled mofongo definitely. And covered in a delicious garlic gravy.

    The delicious aforementioned mofongo Airey dining room. Very nice.

    La Bombonera: The Best Breakfast in Old San Juan

    by paralee Updated Jan 16, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Amazing breakfast! Fresh orange juice, Puerto Rican coffee, and delicious pastries as well as regular breakfast fare. You'll see this place packed every single morning. Full of locals and tourists alike. Apparently, it was featured by Rachel Ray's $40 a Day show on Food Network. And if you have room left over after breakfast, there is a window full of pastries to choose from.

    Favorite Dish: La mallorca. I don't even know how to describe this delicious piece of wonder. It's a mini-bread loaf, cut in half, and breaded, then toasted, then covered in powdered sugar. Now, sounds simple, but it may be the most amazing thing you have ever eaten.

    Usually you'll see a huge crowd of people outside. Delicious cream-filled pastry

    Old Harbor Brewery: Mmmm...delicious beer in Old San Juan

    by paralee Updated Jan 16, 2009

    We didn't really eat any food as it was a bit early for dinner, but we did order the beer sampler and it was pretty decent. The menu looked a bit pricey as it was a steak and lobster kind of place. A lot of American style food, but it was interesting to try some Caribbean beer. The labels are hilarious as they range from a catholic saint to a naked taína woman.

    Favorite Dish: Mmm...the beer...and the sampler was only $9

    La Danza: Best Deal, Best View, Best Paella in Old San Juan

    by paralee Written Jan 16, 2009

    On a beautiful walk through Old San Juan in the evening, we happened upon La Danza and saw that they had a special for two people that included paella, tostones, and wine for $25. The paella was incredible and super full of seafood. There was also a wonderful view of the Capilla de Calle Cristo.

    Favorite Dish: Definitely la paella. Very, very good. And a great price.

    Cafe Manolin: Great Breakfast with the Locals in Old San Juan

    by paralee Written Jan 16, 2009

    Neat little breakfast diner kind of place with lots of "at the bar" seating with great servers who love a bit a conversation. Also table seating available for the diners who want a more private meal.

    Favorite Dish: The egg, ham, and cheese sandwich. Nice and crunchy and warm. Great first thing in the morning. The pastelillos weren't as great as I had hoped as they were filled with american cheese instead of yummy cream cheese or ricotta like you can find elsewhere.

    Paradise Seafood Restaurant: Seafood on the beach!

    by jgemini65 Written Sep 28, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This was a "nice" local restaurant in Playa Punta Santiago. We choose it solely because it was on the tourist map given to us in San Juan. Everything was very good tasting! A little expensive for the ambience...makes one kind of think they are just allowed to charge high because they are on the map! Regardless...the food was good...just not super memorable!

    Entering the city limits.

    Buenos Aires: BE TREATED LIKE ROYALTY!

    by mckinney906 Written Sep 13, 2008

    As soon as you walk in you feel special. They pull out the chairs and basically do everything possible to make you feel important and taken care of. You have a choice to sit outside or inside on two diferent levels.

    Favorite Dish: Their soup. Everything here is brought in fresh daily and made back in the kitchen. Their creame of veggy soup was amazing.

    Waiter's Bar and Grill: Great late night place

    by shargurl Written Mar 28, 2008

    We arrived in San Juan a little late, so decided to take a walk in Candado and find a place to eat. We ended up at Waiter's Bar and Grill. Great little place with a nice atmosphere.

    Favorite Dish: I had mini Gordon Blue's. Thought it would be similar to chicken cordon blue, but not. They are fried mini balls of chicken with ham and cheese, tasty. My husband had a steak, he said it was the best steak he has ever eaten. And he has eaten a lot of steak!

    Cafe Amapola: Great authentic food!

    by shargurl Updated Mar 27, 2008

    Great is a unique oceanfront cafe & bar. Sit on the patio on the second floor and enjoy great views! Atmosphere was good and we really enjoyed eating here.
    This place was directed to us by a man standing on the street handing out little postcards. It's located between San Cristobal and El Morro forts. Check them out!

    Favorite Dish: I had the mashed plantains with chicken. You must try this dish. This was the last restaurant we ate at on our vacation, and we made the right choice. Don't miss the great Caribbean cuisine.

    Street Treats

    by risse73 Updated Mar 11, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My best gastronomic experience was not in restaurants, but eating food sold in the streets! The local street vendors that sold "pinchos" definitely should not be missed. It's a gastronomic delight, less fuss, no pretense, and good food not only for the stomach, but the soul! Driving all around the island of Puerto Rico will allow you to try the many different food/fruit treats sold by local street vendors. You will also find food stalls close to beach areas (e.g., around Luquillo Beach, etc.) Cheers!

    Favorite Dish: Definitely "pinchos" or meat (either chicken or pork) skewered in sticks.

    This was recommended to us by a co-worker of mine. We wanted a traditional Puerto Rican cuisine and we got exactly what we were hoping for. This place had amazing food! Everything about this place was traditional. The people, the music, the food, the drinks… Definitely a must place to go eat.

    Marmalade Restaurant: Yuuuummmmieee

    by magdalena2007 Updated Aug 5, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Our hotel treated us this restaurant during our stay in PR. It wasn’t a place on our list to go eat at because we wanted more traditional Puerto Rican restaurants, but since it was suggested by the hotel and free (because of a little mess up at the hotel).. we tried it out, we were very glad we did.

    This is a very chic restaurant (felt like we were back in New York City). But the food was outstanding! I felt like I have died and gone to restaurant heaven! Even the drinks were out of this world (margaritas – WOW).

    The chef came out later and talked to almost every table –he lived all over the world and started many restaurants, now he settled down in Puerto Rico and he’s expecting a baby. He talked to us for quite a while and told us a lot about Puerto Rico also.

    Favorite Dish: I think it was the mushroom soup
