Went to the bar for tapas, and all they had were "ceasar salad, charcuterie, meatballs, and calamari" They didn't have any of the wines by the glass available that we wanted. Offered us an alternative, $18 a glass as opposed to the $10 original choice... Tapas were not enough food, so for dinner we ordered the lobster bisque and scallops...... More

I only ate here for breakfast, but I loved their buffet. Great spread of European style meats and cheeses. Several hot options every day that changed. The omelet bar was terrific - shout out to Jorge. He was a master chef when it came to omelets. Friendly waitstaff. Ida in particular was very helpful and friendly.

The food was excellent. The staff was very friendly. The prices were good for an upscale restaurant. If you are staying at the intercontinental hotel you should visit.

I am not sure where the bad reviews are coming from, as I love Italian food and was delightfully surprised by this hotel restaurant. They are overpriced because they are in a hotel in a resort area, but it was not that bad. There was a dinner special that included an a salad, main course, and desert and was a... More

First, it was virtually impossible to find the website for this restaurant located inside the Intercontinental. That said, we figured by association, they would do a nice job for a New Year's Eve dinner. Not so. The cost was $99 for a "buffet" and although there was a large selection, the only thing we found to be "upscale" was the... More

My family dined here on Christmas--we were worried about getting a place having been told that many places in San Juan closed for the holiday. Our experience was that most things were open on Christmas (although they opened later) but were closed (or closed early) on Christmas Eve. Regardless, we made reservations for an early (6pm) dinner at Trattoria Italiana.... More

We stayed at the Intercontinental and went here once for breakfast and once for dinner. Breakfast was awful; buffet food was cold, cheap, and cost $27!!! Ridiculous for a continental breakfast you could get for free at any Motel. For dinner, they were "all out" of three dishes that we ordered. After changing our orders, we received the food and...

Dined here on a Friday night close to 9pm. It was very quiet and lights really dim. Not many guests besides the two of us. Service was a little slow but nevertheless good. We ordered linguine with shrimp and linguine frutti del mar. There was a special for $35 including a soup or salad, entree and dessert. We had caesar... More
