Husband took pork tacos and i took snapper filet. The quality was not amazing and we had to wait a while to get our food. We were the only customers. Only positive note: the pina colada was really good. Location is cute.

Visted after a Cathedral tour. Very nice mix of regional cuisine. Lovely watermelon and arugala salad with goat cheese. Pretty courtyard setting in a former convent hotel.

This is a restaurant/bar in the courtyard of the Hotel El Convento. Comfortable and relaxed hideaway from the busy streets of Old San Juan. Our server was attentive and friendly, our order well prepared. We look forward to a return visit some time.

This was our last night, extra special restaurant to visit. From the appetizer to the dessert, the food was wonderful. Our waitress explained everything so well, gave us extra information and was delightful. The atmosphere - pretty patio area surrounded by the lovely hotel was extremely nice.

This restaurant and bar is in the El Convento Hotel. The courtyard makes you feel like you are in Spain. The drinks are generous and the food is Puerto Rican and authentic. This is a beautiful spot for drinks or a meal.

we may have just hit a bad day, but although the server was delightful, the food was really ordinary. we were very disappointed... since there are so many wonderful restaurants in old san juan, i would recommend only coming here for the lovely patio, the beautiful hotel and the really great pina coladas...

I went to Patio del Níspero to celebrate Valentine's Day and it was perfect. We start with a celery soup with mushroom raviolis. For second course we get the sea bass in an incredible mussel broth (this was my favorite). Then we get the main dish of a great hang steak in a mashed potato bed. Simply gorgeous!!! Ee finish...
