My wife and I visited La Madre for brunch yesterday. We intended to go there for lunch, but on Saturdays they apparently serve only brunch until 5:00PM. She ordered fish tacos and really liked them. I ordered chilaquiles with red sauce. I love chilaquiles, but...More

Staff was super friendly although it was a bit of a wait to finally receive our food. In their defense we are a large family of 7. The food was worth the wait! Loved every bite!

After a google search for the “best chilaquiles in San Juan”, we were directed to La Madre, and google was soooo right! Lol. We just had a great lunch here. Chilaquiles and sopes were awesome and the exotic margaritas were delicious. So glad we stopped.

La Madre is a decent tex-mex kind of eatery in the old town of San Juan. Staff was lovely. Cocktails were excellent. I am not the biggest fan of tex-mex food, but it is very decent in its category. Excellent seating.

Was totally enamored with the outside dining and amibence after sunset! Great fusion of Mexican with a Carribean flair. Had the beef and chicken enchiladas which were incredibly light!

we too stumbled upon this restaurant while wandering around San Juan. Decided to walk back at dinner time. It' was unassumingly delicious as stated. Service can be spotty for city dwellers but worth every second of the wait. We shared chimichangas which were flavorful and...More

We are a small, locally owned business offering high quality meals cooked with the best ingredients. A very intimate space to enjoy lunch or dinner, and now brunch on the weekends. Fresh fruit juices, mimosas & margaritas, premium coffee and great music make this a place you don't want to miss.
