This small and friendly restaurant offers flavorful bargains and outdoor seating right on Plaza de Colón. Inside, the room has a welcome, old-fashioned ambiance thanks to ceiling fans, beamed ceilings, and tile floors, and the constant whir of a blender mixing up tropical fruit drinks. The menu features hearty regional fare. Top options include whole red snapper, paella, and chicken and rice. Of course, if you need a break during a day of strolling Old San Juan’s winding streets, don’t wait for dinner—lunch is enjoyable here and the bar serves up reasonably priced tropical drinks, sangria, and wine.
