Food and service is very good. It's delicious and professional service. They makes you feel like home. We went like 5 times during our vacations at old San Juan.

My wife and I had supper here and would recommend this as a must on your local restaurants list. It specializes in local cuisine. Corn fritter appies with a couple of different sauces was a great start. Cold beers were good too! I had the fall off the bone pork ribs with mofongo on the side. Excellent. My wife had the garlic chicken and a plantain side that was a little on the bland side and better with the mango sauce. Really well priced meal. Service was engaged and personable. Get there early. Closes at 9:00. Happy we went!

Where the locals go. Empanadas are exceptional as well as the sangria. Reservations not accepted so plan accordingly. Worth the trip!

If you can manage come here. I literally got a pitcher of sangria, skirt steak, and cheese balls. Literally the best dinner ever! Great service!

El Jibarito offers a great selection of Puertorrican comfort food. Great place for lunch. The prices are fair for the quality of food they serve.
