Inaru served amazing dishes which all were based on local recipes that had been updated with modern ingredients and cooking techniques. Unfortunately I believe that it is now permanently closed.More

Thank you very much for your review. Unfortunately due to the passed hurricanes that hit the island in September 2017 and the lack of electricity for 4 months after the hurricanes, I was not able to open our doors to our guests again. I appreciate...More

We lucked into this one. After wearing out the soles of our shoes under the hot sun, we started reading menus. Any establishment that mentioned items that appeared in anyway North American were immediately dismissed. A few others were possibilities and were added to a...More

Service was excellent. Appetizer pretty good but didn't bring the lobster and cost $29.00!! Drinks were very small and were expensive. Nice and clean. Did not eat dinner.

On a busy street, Inaru is an welcome oasis. We discovered this on a previous visit and were not disappointed on tonight's return visit. The service is warm and professional, and we love chatting with the chef. But mostly it is the food that drew...More

Moist and buttery Mofongos with your choice of chicken, shrimp, churrasco or seafood. Taino Chicken in 3 Star Barrilito Rum or Creole Marinated Grilled Prime Pork Chop. Deep Fried Red Snapper, Fresh Salmon Fillet, Shrimp sautéed in your choice of sauces. These are only a few of the choices that will make the choosing difficult. And keep in mind that we serve the best Sangrias in old San Juan. Reaching back to the native Taino Indians, the Spanish conquerors and the African slaves, Inarú is inspired by and pays homage to the spirit and diversity of Puerto Rican women through our rich flavors, and each artisanal dish is prepared with skill and passion.
