We tried to eat here on Easter Sunday but it was closed so tried our luck on Easter Monday. Glad we tried again. Best meal we've had in SJ. Excellent food (the half rack of lamb is delicious) good wine list and excellent service. Jasmine dealt with 4 kids very well and the atmosphere was buzzing while listening to some... More

We visited Caril's last week and got the last table outside. I had the seared tuna which was superb. It was a busy evening so the service was a little slow, but we were not in any hurry. The wine was delicious. A little pricey, but it is fine bistro so you pay for what you get. I would go... More

Food selections were interesting and good. Service was outstanding. Very casual with live music both outside and inside. Had been recommended by staff at Monastery Art Suites a few blocks away and we consider it a good recommendation.

What can be better that good food, an award winning bartender for mixed drinks and two guitars playing rock classics? Loved the cod bunuelos tapa

On our second evening in San Juan we found Carlos purling by chance. The floor was well presented, staff excellent. My wife and I both had the blackened Which Tuna. It was cooked to perfection. My wife and I find out regularly in London and this restaurant is one of the best we have experienced on vacation

Beautiful, elegant atmosphere. The service was marvelous. I had the Mahi-Mahi and my husband had the seafood pasta; both were excellent. The best part was the music - the pianist could really touch your soul. Wonderful place for a romantic evening.

Very small restaurant with tables that go right up to the entrance. Both outdoor and indoor seating is wheelchair accessible. Sorry didn't check to see if the bathroom was also accessible. For us, the service was very laid back, we had reservations, so was seated right away but didn't get any menus or asked for our drink order for at... More
