“A Jewel in the Caribbean! ”
Review of Princesa Gastrobar

Princesa Gastrobar
Ranked #17 of 1,114 Restaurants in San Juan
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$12 - US$37
Description: Our Gastronomy Dates back to the 1850's At Princesa we've rescued the 1859 cookbook El cocinero puertorriqueño (The Puertorrican Cook). It contains details about 19th century Puertorrican culinary culture and its influences from Africa, Spain, the native Taínos and other Caribbean islands. Since the book was missing some parts related to the ingredients, our kitchen staff has worked to reconstruct its recipes using all of the available information. For the most part we have kept to the ingredients from the original recipes. We invite you to taste and learn about the best of our culinary culture.

A Great place! We went there for my wife's Bday and we really had an amazing evening in Princesa Gastrobar. The food, the ambiance, the music was state of the art. Definitely we will come back soon.

A wonderful, chilled ambience, with delicious, freshly prepared food- the high light of our trip- live music and a fabulous waiter, Yamil, who just made the whole evening very memorable. Highly recommended and the cocktails are divine. Thank you.

We love this restaurant! The atmosphere is so warm and nice with the outdoor seating area. The food is absolutely good, we love their risotto!! Princesa has become a favorite one in Old San Juan!

The outdoor seating here is beautiful!! It is built around trees that look as if they have been there for many years, vines hanging down, just gorgeous! We started at the bar, waiting for a table - didn't mind the 25 minute wait, just enjoying how beautiful the restaurant was and the fantastic cocktails. There was also a live band, they were fantastic! Our food was good, nothing amazing or anything that would draw us back night after night (certainly nothing bad, just nothing outstanding), but the atmosphere and band would most certainly bring us back again. It is just incredible!

I absolutely LOVE the atmosphere at this restaurant...essentially the outside was built around existing trees. There was entertainment the evening we were there and that made the setting that much better. Food was equally wonderful and service was great! I would definitely return!!
