    Because of the excellent attentiveness of the staff and chef, the food is fantastic! Try the salmon tartar, Yellow Tonic drink, tuna steak, the house special rice dish, and of course the Purple Cloud!

    Everything's was perfect. The service, the excellent orientation of the waitress about the menu. The food was excellent. The restaurant have a good vibe. We love the antique touch.

    The portobello mushroom special and Brussels sprouts appetizers were both excellent. Big issue was the fact that it took 1.5 hours to get our food! All in all it took 2.5 hours for our meal

    Everything is sooooo good and fresh. Get the Purple Cloud dessert!!! Also, the decor is gorgeous. Lunch is usually less packed but come at 5pm to make a dinner reservation.

    Try the yellow tonic (with or without vodka) ... it will change your life. The owner is gorgeous and sweet. I wish they would open a place in Philadelphia.

    Good vegetarian dishes, the swordfish ceviche was great, the Ratatouille was also very good. Pretty fancy spot with great cocktails too.

    Wow, the Ratatouille is so delicious. I don't know why I've waited so long to try this place, I'll be back frequently from now on!

    Food is delicious, the purple cloud dessert everybody talks about it's a must. The bad stuff is the limited overpriced wine options, we paid $60 for a $8.95 retail price wine!! :(

    One of the best meals I've had in this earth. Definitely go for the Verde Mesa Arroz verde, without any extra. Amazing blend of flavors.

    The purple cloud dessert and the tomatoes with goat cheese foam were phenomenal. The best meal thus far in Old San Juan!

    Visit again a month ago, and the wine situation has been fixed, more variety and better prices.

    Everything is great from apps to desserts. Order the Purple Cloud - you won’t regret it.

    Add rum to your botanical. And then get the purple cloud. You will not regret either decision.

    Everything is amazing, but the arroz is a must-have for a reason.

    If I have to be unequivocally honest, this was the best meal I've had in 6+ months. And it wasn't even pricy. Hot damn.
