Stopped by here to eat because it looked very inviting with the windows up and staff at the doors eager to gain our business. I ordered the frozen mango Mojito margarita, it was hardly frozen almost warm..... My boyfriend ordered the pasta with chicken and red sauce, but he received Alfredo sauce instead. He ate it anyway and enjoyed it.... More

There is a live big band every Monday night. We went the Monday following the Heineken Jazz Festival, and oh my goodness, what a band! There were also big-name producers and musicians in the house. There is a $25 cover charge per person on top of your meal for the Monday show, but based on our experience, it's worth it.... More

This place has a real Cuban feel to it and doesn't disappoint when it comes to mixing drinks. Alberto was a wealth of local knowledge and made such a good Piña Colada that we stayed on and enjoyed the night much longer than we originally planned. If you're in Condado looking for a good cocktail, check this place out.

Service was most welcoming and efficient and even though this Restaurant was packed, the appetizers & Main course came out quickly. The Grilled Snapper Filet was delicious...loved those black beans but needed more of that garlic, pepper and parsley sauce. This was hands down the best meal I had during my getaway!

Went on a Monday night for the big band. Great food and service despite being very busy. The red snapper was delicious and the mojitos were great as well.

We stumbled on this place and were very pleasantly surprised. Mohitos are amazing. For food, we had an appetizer of the turnovers with a cheese and crab. They were ok, but our least favorite of the night. For entrees, we had the coconut shrimp and the churrasco and both were delicious. We even have talked about coming back to this... More

My wife and I spent our first dinner in San Juan at this restaurant after seeing some really cool and big margaritas while walking nearby. I'm afraid the food wasn't as good, just OK at best and pretty expensive. We ordered the Caesar salad (~$12) and breaded chicken (~$18), when the margarita was $10 and beer was $4 which is... More

This restaurant features Cuban food. I have eaten there two times, first was better than the second. Coconut shrimp was tasty. Restaurant is on a corner with open sides. Tables have swinging seats which adds to the decor. Friendly staff.

We had great food and service at Yerba Buena. It wasn't a night when they had music, but we were able to sit out on the patio on a beautiful night and have a fantastic dinner. Mojitos are wicked strong, so watch out for that. Son and I had great fish dishes, husband had great mofongo, and my daughter was... More
