We stumbled on this place and were very pleasantly surprised. Mohitos are amazing. For food, we had an appetizer of the turnovers with a cheese and crab. They were ok, but our least favorite of the night. For entrees, we had the coconut shrimp and the churrasco and both were delicious. We even have talked about coming back to this restaurant before we leave and plan to order the same entrees.

My wife and I spent our first dinner in San Juan at this restaurant after seeing some really cool and big margaritas while walking nearby.

I'm afraid the food wasn't as good, just OK at best and pretty expensive. We ordered the Caesar salad (~$12) and breaded chicken (~$18), when the margarita was $10 and beer was $4 which is about the same price everywhere.

I'm afraid it wasn't as good as we were hoping it to be, especially when it cost us more than $55 with just one entree and one drink each.

This restaurant features Cuban food. I have eaten there two times, first was better than the second. Coconut shrimp was tasty. Restaurant is on a corner with open sides. Tables have swinging seats which adds to the decor. Friendly staff.

We had great food and service at Yerba Buena. It wasn't a night when they had music, but we were able to sit out on the patio on a beautiful night and have a fantastic dinner. Mojitos are wicked strong, so watch out for that. Son and I had great fish dishes, husband had great mofongo, and my daughter was pleased that they catered to kids and had plain old noodles after 7 days of fish and carribean food. Our service was also excellent Would strongly recommend this place for dinner.
