    Definitely try the piña colada, and the paella is delishous! If you'll be here on a Friday or Saturday, be sure to call for a dinner reservation. They have a free flamenco show. It was wonderful!

    t's said that the piña colada was invented at this bar and restaurant. The drink is emblematic of Puerto Rico—pineapple, coconut and rum basically make up our landscape. Read more

    Waiters are super nice and helpfull. Chicken nachos are great,not greasy like others I've tasted. Got a free piña colada by using a coupon from a travel magazine from the hotels :)

    Best place for a drink. The bar tenders are the friendliest and most knowledgeable in old San Juan. Great place for day drinking. Ask for Juan. The man is an artist with his bar tending skills

    Make reservations! It is a tourist trap - for good reason - so it is not a place to just go on a whim. Staff is great. Try the mofongo. Have a pina colada or two.

    Little late to check in and put a tip but definitely a must when visiting Old San Juan. Aside from being the place where Pina Colada was first made, I went for the Paella Criolla!

    Amazing piña colada! The mahi mahi fritters are delicious. The mofongo de yuca with seafood is really good. The wait staff is always friendly.

    This is the spot where the pina colada was invented by Ramón "Monchito" Marrero in 1954. The rumors are TRUE—this will be the best pina colada of your trip AND your life. 🍹well worth the wait

    Claims, along with the Hilton Caribe, to be the birthplace of the Piña Colada. Not sure there's is better than the Hilton's, but it's definitely easier to get to.

    One of the two potential birthplaces of the Piña Colada, and they sure know how to make them!

    Pina Colada's are great. Try the 151 Pina Colada! That will get you going! The Originator of the Pina Colada does not disappoint!

    Don't know what David C. Was thinking.... I eat here every single trip to PR and the Piña Coladas and food is great. Go for the Mofongo! But so you know it's heavy and very filling. A+

    Not a huge selection for vegetarians, but one of the two choices -- the vegetables mofongo -- is excellent (and huge). Come hungry.

    Piña coladas at the outdoor bar were a perfect start to our day! Get a rum floater for an extra kick!

    The pina coladas are made from a locally made rum! Ron del Barrilito... never been exported & best kept secret... aged 3 years undisturbed in charred oak barrels! Wow.

    Best, and first, pina coladas! Convinced they make them stronger with each consecutive order.
