Dinner will take a minimum of two hours at your Leisure. Groups of 6 people or more will be invited to taste Chef's seasonal tasting menu of 15 courses. Dress appropriately please, no shorts and beach sandals in the restaurant.
I’m sorry to report Marmalade delivered a disappointing experience at Mainland costs. At this price point, I’ve enjoyed many world-class dining experiences and this was far from it. Both food (the absolutely most important element) and service missed the mark completely.
The food: Only half of the dishes were good or decent. The rest were boring, underseasoned or simply not good. I can overlook service issues if the food is truly stellar, but most of the dishes were just ok. No wow factor here. Best dish of the night was the chocolate dessert. The lobster risotto also hit the mark with tender rice and plentiful lobster. Worst was the lamb tagine where the sauce was thick and odd. The halibut also underwhelmed, depending on a miso broth that couldn’t carry the dish.
The Service: All Waitstaff seemed frazzled, running around, without signs of any wait assistants. Serving a multi course dinner with wine pairings is not a one-person task. Wine pairing need explanation (only half of the time pairing were explained). Timing should be on point. Tables should be cleared completely after every course. Our waitress was gone most of the dinner. I can’t blame her completely; this is a sign of poor administration. The chef/manager are to blame here. This is fine dining folks—you should know better! Needless to say I’m not returning. San Juan deserves better.

It's becoming a tradition to return to Mallorca for lunch before we head to the airport after our cruise. This was our 3rd time here and not disappointed at all. Once again we came for the Mallorca's and the lemonade. You can't go wrong here.

Located on the rooftop of the Hotel Milano this lively rooftop restaurant serves up great and authentic Puerto Rican food in an informal atmosphere at great prices. The best Mofongo in Old San Juan. Buy 1 Get 1 Free Mojitos every day from open until 5:00pm! Come check out the best rooftop view of the Old City and enjoy great local food. Family Friendly!
What a great find! We were staying a few blocks away and found this restaurant. You enter from the hotel, take the elevator to the 4th floor and then walk up one flight of stairs. The manager, and all the staff, were great. The wait for a table was 30 minutes -- no problem - as we enjoyed a few amazing mojitos. The food was very good and a great ambience on the rooftop.

First farm to table in the island since 2009 with a modern approach to cuisine. An invitation to the curious palate. Local, traditional ingredients meet ingenious and innovative forms. Our chef's proposal changes according to local meat, fish and produce availability. Botanical Bar, wine list and homemade ingredients cocktails. No Reservations. Limited Seating.
This lunch place in old San Juan is definitely worth seeking out, it is hidden in plain sight.
Decor is interesting, quirky and certainly adds to the whole dining experience. The staff are very knowledgeable about the food they serve and are very pleasant with just the right amount of chat. The menu is interesting and the food is delicious.
We enjoyed it so much we visited the next day before leaving San Juan, and again could not fault it.

Vagón is a Mexican restaurant with Tex-Mex and SoCal influences with lots of flavor. Come and join us for a fun outdoor Seating environment.
Staying at the Marriott, we walked about 10 minutes to get to El Vagon and were not disappointed. The empanadas were large and the better one was the carnitas. Fish tacos were a hit with the group along with the nacho macho with steak. The surf and turf combination of fish taco and carnitas was really good with the cabbage on top. The portions were sizable and they uses flour tortillas, not the more traditional corn ones. We walked right up and found a table to enjoy 4 entrees, 4 empanadas, mini nacho, margarita with tax and tip for $65.
Fast, hot, delicious.

ChocoBar is a new, innovative gastronomic space located in the heart of Old San Juan, and here chocolate is our guiding star. Our restaurant is part of Casa Cortés, where the historical patrimonies of the capital city, Caribbean art, and first class service converge. Here you can enjoy a variety of dishes and cocktail selections, elaborated with local products from the family run Cortés Chocolate Enterprise. A novel gastronomic concept that encompasses art and culture, where enjoying chocolate is a passion and quality is our compromise.
This is averahr at best, but with the hype of being #2 rated in all of San Juan, I recommend it to the group. 0 out of 6 left satisfied.

Señor Paleta specializes in making gelato and sorbet artisan ice pops. We offer a variety of fresh fruit and nut based options.
Since my early years I love the chocolate “paleta” ice cream. Señor Paleta offers a “paleta” stuffed with brownies to die for!
It’s delicious. Even thought there are other flavors I always get chocolate.!
This is a puertorrican product, so if you visit Old San Juan don’t miss this.
