The grilled oysters were to die for. The lobster mashed potatoes were excellent. They fix a killer Mojito as well. If you go to Old San Juan, nobody should pass up this place. The menu is pricey, but your on vacation. Live a little.

Service was pleasant but slow
Service was pleasant but slow from sitting us to drinks to food. Food is very good though. To be fair we were a table of 7. Nice cocktails and wine list.

We had heard a lot about Aquaviva,
We had heard a lot about Aquaviva, it more than lived up to our expectations. We never left the appetizers section, the choices were so good. I recommend the oysters and the tuna tartar ceviche, they were the best! Pricy but worth the trip into old San Juan.

The seafood was very good, if a bit on the expensive side. But everything in San Juan seemed to be.

From my review I posted on Yelp
This has to be one of the best restaurants to eat in Old San Juan! Great ambiance and delicious food!
I would highly recommend getting the Watermelon Sangria, It's so tasty and refreshing. We loved it so much we ordered a pitcher of it.
My wife and I ordered the the" De Lujo" Seafood Tower with the Red Snapper ceviche and the octopus ceviche. This mid sized (out of the 3) seafood tower comes with 12 oysters 18 steamed muscles, shrimp and 2 ceviches of your choice along with a side of fried plantains. That being said we made this tower our meal.

A Viejo San Juan gem!
What a delicious assortment of seafood -- any way you like it! Aguaviva has a very nice array of cerviches, which are fresh and tasty. We also loved the coconut shrimp -- wish I could post a photo as the presentation is as wonderful as they are tasty. Definitely try the seafood paella -- it was full of scallops, lobster, shrimp, octopus and other seafood -- fabulously delicious! Aguaviva was a nice "find" in downtown Old San Juan.

Ceviche is king here!
Great food and service! The ambiance was energetic and fun. The two of us shared ceviche and the paella, and both were fantastic! We finished with the chocolate mousse cake and espresso. Again, both were amazing! If you are in Old San Juan make sure your visit includes an evening at Aguaviva!!

Go for the tasting cerviches. Three of us, we shared the six cerviche taster - all delicious. Good service throughout, too. Our third visit in two years.

Best seafood in PR
On our last night in PR we decided to try something new and found aguaviva. The food was excellent and our server was great. I had the surf and turf and that was out of this world! I loved the lobster mashed potatoes,the calamari, and coconut shrimp.

First time we visited this place about five years ago. It was great back then, same as it was this time. The creative ceviche dishes are to die for.

I was on vacation in Puerto Rico and was looking for a good place to eat at with a friend. This was one of the few restaurants that was open on a Sunday but I'm glad it turned out this way because everything was AMAZING. We were greeted as soon as we walked in through the door and received exceptional service till the moment we stepped out. The food was super yummy and the drinks were great as well. I REALLY appreciated the fact that the waitress even initially asked if any of us had any food allergies. This came as a surprise since NO restaurant I've ever been to has ever asked this but i was glad since i am allergic to peanuts. I loved everything about this place. I recommend the churrasco, the chicken dumplings and the filet mignon. :)

We were in San Juan for a meeting and also to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Initially were concerned with the outside appearancere, but were very impressed with the ambience inside. The service was very good. Staff were very helpful in explaining the various local dishes. The food was excellent and, the crab cakes are best we have had so far. It was our very first night in town and the server was even kind enough to walk us to the taxi station since they could not call us a cab due to construction in the area. I highly recommend.

Ceviche is sooo good
My boyfriend and I ate here last June and only had the Ceviche (Red snapper) it was so good we decided to return this year for dinner. I didn't enjoy the Mediterranean ceviche too much but I heard the shrimp one is great. My favorite is the red snapper though. Most ceviche's in PR are dry this one was nice and moist and tangy. The first time I went the bartender that served us the ceviche was so great that we really felt he made us want to return. This time around the server was very nice but she took long with our wine, forgot our oysters (Dinner arrived first so we cancelled them). The salmon in zucchini cream sauce was delicious! I

The food was excellent. However,
The food was excellent. However, the restaurant itself is due some updating and remodeling. Still a must go to if in San Juan just to experience the seafood, but was disappointed to see the restaurant so empty compared to other restaurants. I have a feeling it has to do with the slightly run down, outdated look of the interior.

Great Seafood in Viejo San Juan
This is a great little place in the middle of Old San Juan. They have a number of seafood options including a number of really stellar ceviches. Service was attentive and helpful. Laid back vibe. A great find. Highly recommended.

My husband and I both loved
My husband and I both loved the intimate creative atmosphere here, and the ceviche lived up to its reputation as being some of the best food we ate here. We shared three of the six ceviche, and with the dinner and 2 drinks it was a full meal. We shared the paella and we happy to see the reasonable portion. Service was friendly and attentive, and the crowd was interesting! At 8pm the restaurant was not crowded but was when we left.

Great Dinner in San Juan
It was a great choice. We had one night in San Juan so we went to open table and found this. One of the best evenings of dinning we have ever had. I would go back and recommend to all.
