La Casita was hands down the best place we are at in the 5 days we were there. This is literally an old school home that they turned into a restaurant. It's outside of the tourist area and very authentic to the Puerto Rican culture!

Awesome puertorican restaurant. The setting is an usual casona, the food is like your grandmothers'. Lots of options. Located in Villa Palmeras, it has parking available. A must in San Juan.

La Casita Blanca brings you back to memory lane. It feels like you are visiting your great grandparents in the country side of the island. The quality of the food is superior! The friendliness and service of the staff is heartfelt. A gem!!!!

When we arrived at la concha our room was not available yet so they held our bags in a safe place and gave us a ticket number once the room was ready. Hope this helps
