The staff was so energetic and friendly. You felt as if you were in good hands! Ceviche was fresh and delicious!

I got the whole fish of the day, but my dad got the red snapper. Oh. Em. Gee. That might be my favorite meal of the trip so far! I think I ate more of it than he did ;)

Extremely poor service and lack luster food, We waited over 20 minutes for our check while the server chatted with another table - this was after asking for the check for the second time. The food was mediocre, ceviche was bland and boring. Would not recommend.

Billy our waiter was outstanding. We went here on our honeymoon and he surprised us with complementary champagne. The menu has a nice variety of food. Price is great. It sits on a beautiful small side street in Old San Juan. Just perfecto!

This place does seafood great. I have eaten here several times and the whole fish is alway cooked to perfection! If you're in old town and craving seafood..this is your place. Unless of course, you want to find something not quite as good!

Very disappointed in the food - the salt level was so high it was nearly impossible to eat. The noise level was so high I was more than anxious to get out of the restaurant. Our service was excellent.

Based on the reviews, maybe we came on an off night. They seemed understaffed and even turned away customers despite having less than half the dining room full. Service was slow. Food was ok, but not worth the wait. The Mango ceviche dish tasted like they dunked it in Franks Red Hot sauce - like a Louisiana hot sauce. The coconut shrimp was on par with some pub grub you might get in the states. We opted out of getting entrees because the appetizers weren't too great. I'm generally skeptical of the places near the entrance to Old San Juan. They tend to be tourist traps. This fell into that genre for us. But, like I said, they seemed understaffed, so it could have been an off night.

Had a great evening with very welcoming staff. The ceviche platter we ordered was very tasty. Great bread and garlic butter. Our entrees were mahi mahi and branzino with mashed apio plus steamed veggies. We had a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc.

From the minute we walked in we were treated like VIPs. Our waiter Jorge Madera and his assistant Steven were outstanding and went out of their way to make the evening special including asking the kitchen to make some special side dishes just for us to try. We highly recommend Aquaviva to anyone visiting Old San Juan. Excellent seafood with delicious Puerto Rican side dishes.

Came back after 14yrs for our 15th wedding anniversary. Service and food remain excellent. Decor and vibe not as bright and alive as it was in 2002.

Loved our stop during our Apr 2017 vacation to San Juan. The coconut shrimp and sea scallops were amazing! The creme brûlée was also on point! To top off all the great local seafood was some of the best service we have received! Additionally, we were never rushed, we felt like their goal was to make our evening great!

We celebrated out 35th wedding anniversary here. The food and service were both exceptional. What was even nicer is we were able to relax and enjoy ourselves and never feel as though we were rushed.
