Diner Reviews
  • "Do not be put off by appearance of restaurant. Food was great."

  • "I found the authentic food to be excellent but no a/c so could be warm "

  • "Most items on menu were not available. They seem to have only three liquors available, rum, kailua, and a bottle of Jack Daniels! Very disappointing. Even chicken Caesar salad.....but no chicken, ridiculous!"

  • "I really wanted to like this place. The menu looks delicious, and the place is beautifully done. But when you are out of most of your food, including the advertised prix-fixe at $23.50 and everything else on the menu, we went elsewhere. Be sure to check that they have food before going."

  • "First the good news. The waiter was very nice and hard-working. Two of the three dishes we ordered were good. And El Asador is a charming looking tavern in a historic building. Now the bad news. Waits are interminable, with several tables of clients leaving in the process. The prices are as high or higher than in some of the best restaurants in San Juan (like Casa Lola or Oceano). Water is served in plastic cups. Seating is mostly on picnic benches. There is only one, overpriced, red and one white wine by the bottle. The fried calamari were the worst I have ever tasted. In sum, It's a good place to drink --at the bar, where you don't need to wait so long for service. But as a restaurant, it's a pure tourist trap."

  • "A cute little place tucked out of the way in Old a Town San Juan. Not one of the tourist joints. A nice place to try."

  • "This place looks attractive but please avoid it at all costs. The food is mediocre at best, especially considering the exorbitant prices, and the service takes forever. It took an hour and 15 minutes for us to get our appetizers. The fish was bland and overcooked and the pasta tasted like Chef Boyardee. The waiter spilled water on our table and never cleaned it up. Even the mojito, which they claim is the best in PR, is fine but not superlative."

  • "I read some good reviews and was expecting some good Puerto Rican cusine. What a let down. Food was pricey, but quality was sub par. Presentation was nice, but food lacked seasoning and was very bland."
