We have visited Casa Manolo several times. The food is excellent, they really do a great job in the kitchen and the menu is extensive and the food tastes real fresh. The wine list is minimal and Manolo suggest that you bring your own wine. The real problem I have is the place smells a little off maybe a little... More

Great place. The employees are all great. From valet to inside. The owner, Mr Manolo greets you with a big smile. From Tapas to main dish, everything is good. Try the grill octopus and the arcapurrias de yuca. For main dish, loved the chuleton de Res and Libina Silvestre ...

Superb meal, start to finish. Not pretentious; just excellent choices of meats and seafood (in equal number of menu items) in a bright, fresh ambience. We ordered five distinct main courses; each of us walked away happy. Owner Manolo, a Spaniard, is rightly proud and solicitous. And the manchego flan makes my list of memorable desserts. 'Not in a particularly... More

This is a traditional Spanish restaurant - the owner Manuel Piqueres is from Santander in northern Spain. It is off the tourist path - here you will find locals and business people, but unlikely you will see any tourists. Part of the reason is that it is located on a side street in a business area of Santurce. The seafood... More

This restaurant was essentially a Chinese eatery that is now an eclectic restaurant owned by a charming Spaniard from Cantabria. The decor is not fancy, and actually quite crude, but the food reflects the owner's heritage in Spanish food. I had an excellent snapper that was fresh, fresh, fresh. My wife had prawns. They allow you to being your favorite... More

Chef Manolo itself will take your order, don't pass on the tapas. Bring your own bottle of wine. Food taste awesome, servings rather small.

The best Bogavante (Lobster) and Fetuccine, Rodaballo (Halibut) at Casa Manolo. Manolo is a Spanish character that will make you feel at home the moment you wallk in. He knows his business. The best food in town. Bring your favorite wine. He will only charge $10.00 service charge. Make reservations. He's always full.

We stayed at an Airbnb around the corner so this was very convenient. Manolo was quite welcoming; we had tapas including the octopus which is a Must. Sangria is excellent. Great food, attentive service, lots of locals--if you are in search of wonderful Spanish food in San Juan, this is the place!

The grilled octopus and fried pork belly are a must for starters. The prawns and fish are outstanding.
