Thoroughly enjoyed this meal in La Placita. It’s a vibrant area with many bars and restaurants with outdoor seating. There were live performers in several of the other bars. People dancing and enjoying the afternoon.
We sat on the outside because it wasn’t too hot. The server was nice and friendly and prompt. We started with the octopus chicharrones and it was absolutely delicious! It was seasoned so well and tender. We are every bite.
We shared the rib eye tacos and trio of auqachiles with shrimp. The ribeye was fried and tender and the overall taco was the perfect bite of flavor and meat. The trio fresh and yummy. Lots of vegetables and light. Nice dressings and lightly cooked shrimp. The tortilla and chips they served with it was season so good it really made a delicious bite with all the ingredients.
Very very tasty food. We enjoyed our meal and the ambience
This place is a gem! Stopped here for lunch when our cruise docked in San Juan. Wanted to eat some good local food in a non-touristy spot relatively close to the port. The ambiance here was wonderful. Service was great. The food was amazing. Loved the tacos ropa viejos and lobster risotto. My husband said his steak was better than anything he ate on our Disney cruise. Portions are large. The sangria was excellent. Don’t hesitate to check this place out.
Drift called us to let us know that they wouldn’t have food, only appetizers and drinks. We really appreciate knowing that and preparing before we arrived.
We had a great time listening to the band and enjoying some drinks.
