    A must! Great French food! I recommend the lunch menu (quiche, Priscilia salad) and the nutella-grand marnier-banana-walnut crèpe ! For drinks menu try ginger lemonade or caiprinhia! PS: I'm French.

    Sandwiches - with avocado and beef.. Also there is a very unique sandwich with chicken and peanuts - definitely worths a try. The owner is a french guy who was very positive as well. Service is slow

    The blueberry margharita (a daily special), the Karlox sandwich, the Sicilian sandwich, and the amaretto rum cake were all amazing.

    Great sandwiches! Recommend: Tango with chickpeas and Vera with greens. Also get a ginger lemonade, refreshing natural ingredients is terrific to cool off from the sun.

    Great ambience and have ginger lemonade! An San Juan traditional house converted to a restaurant. Love the cosy vibe! A must try is Arabian.

    Our first time. VERY long wait, so started unhappy, but finished VERY happy. 2 adults, 2 kids. Had the cheese pizza, quiche, and the James and Mediterraneo sandwiches. All were incredible.

    Healthy food options when you need a break from the delicious but heavy traditional Caribbean fare. Nice salads and sandwiches. Great basil mojito!

    Karlox steak sandwich is probably top 5 sandwiches I've ever had. House mojito is terrific too

    The basil lemonade is perfect. Tart, flavourful and just a bit sweet. Salads are excellent and a welcome change from heavy food!

    Sunday brunch was a sh!tshow. Forget about picking up a quick lunch on Sundays. They offer neither quick nor lunch - just breakfast.

    If you're a local, RUN! They only treat tourists with a great attitude. Everyone else (Puerto Ricans) get served last and with backhanded comments.

    The 9.1 must’ve been from the previous owner/chef. While the food was ok, it wasn’t gr8.The “natural” juice was from a can, and the “garlic” fries had no trace of garlic and were worse than in McD’s

    As the current Foursquare mayor of St. Germain I can say that I'm ashamed of the bad service I received today. Please guys treat LOCALS better, those are the ones that advertise you every day.
