We had a great meal last Saturday night and came across this restaurant by accident. It's a real hidden gem with authentic Puerto Rican cuisine. The service was excellent. We chose to sit inside as it was too humid outdoors. Dennis our server was a real character! Thoroughly recommend this restaurant. Reasonably priced too, compared to other places.

Fresh food prepared at the order. Truly recommended. They had spent time elevating the concept of PR cuisine. Would recommend you to try. Enjoy! !!

What a great find. We had been trying to get into Raices (see review) but ended up eating her. Started with a drink here while waiting for Raices but took so long we decided to eat here. Glad we did! The service was excellent and the food was very good. They offer a nice selection of local dishes.

My wife and I chose this “do over” restaurant because we had a great meal here last year.. Now I can say we’ve had another great meal at Inaru. We did make reservations the day before so we could sit outside, which we enjoy doing in Old San Juan. Our server, Alexis, was outstanding and brought us to our table.... More

Both nights the service was very efficient and all of the different foods and drinks we had were delicious. I would absolutely recommend stopping here if you're in... More

Walked to Inaru for a great evening meal. Sat on the street tables and enjoyed the atmosphere. Service was great. Food was plenty and tasty. Loved the seafood ceviche. Mojitos was good as well. Definitely a great choice in San Juan

We really enjoyed the take on Puerto Rican food here. The snapper was first-rate, the ceviche in avocado was delicious, and we loved the mojitos (happy hour prices but not watered down drinks). Service is pleasant but leisurely: generally it's best not to expect your servers to rush in Puerto Rico. I think they believe it is rude to you... More

Very similar to another reviewer, we wanted to go to Al Dente, but they didn't have any tables inside (it was too muggy to eat outside) and Inaru is next door. They had a good looking restaurant - and the other trip advisor reviews were good, so we gave it a try. The restaurant is very cute - inside there... More
