Disappointment with Old San Juan Restaurant 8/17/2011

I came from California longing to try some Puerto Rican food. Read the reviews and chose to visit the place with my uncle, mom and wife. The server seemed annoyed to have us there, I am used to people being happy we are spending our money with them. I asked about the noon-4 p.m. lunch special advertised in their web page (we arrived at 2:55 p.m.) and was told that the special was only until 3 p.m. The garlic chicken my mom ate was bland, the pasteles were hard and rubbery, taste was ok. The arroz con gandures was fair, the Shrimp garlic was fair. But I was disappointed by the lack of commitment to the client. My hobby is cooking Puerto Rican food, so I was expecting something better in Miami. We shoud have gone to the Cuban restaurant Versailles. more

It was ""OK"" 7/29/2011

Drove 100mi to see what this restaurant was all about. First, my boyfriend and I ordered some sorullitos and Bacalaitos as appetizers. I have to say that the Bacalaitos were really good, but the sorullitos were a little dried. When we got to the entr more

Really good food for the homesick boricua...but should NOT be on a cheap eats list! 12/20/2008

My fiance and I went last night to Old San Juan looking for great food at a reasonable price, and since it was recommended as such on this site, we decided to check it out. I was really looking forward to Asopao de Camarones, as it seems like I can never find the real thing in Miami. Asopao's range from $25 to $40 dollars ( for one! ). I ended up with Mofongo con Carne Frita, which still cost $15. My fiance had Lechon Asado con arroz con gandules y tostones for $20. We then shared a Bien Me Sabe de Guayaba, which was amazing! For the two of us, one soda, no alcohol, two entrees and one dessert the bill came to $55. NOT inexpensive at all! But, the service was great, they offer a buffet on the weekends for $22 a person, which includes one non-alcoholic drink and dessert/coffee. Pros: Great food, easy parking, good service and a diverse menu Cons: All the items seem to be quite a bit overpriced more

Best Puerto Rican Food in Miami! 10/23/2007

Want really good, fresh Puerto Rican food? Want it presented in a non-pretentious, easy-to-get-to place? Head to Old San Juan Restaurant, where the man in the kitchen really knows what he's doing. This little corner of island heaven offers good food and good service. Crave great pasteles? Want a fresh, tasty cod salad? Feeling like some bacalaitos? Need a dose of great rice and beans - PR-style? Come on down! Weekends feature a very nice buffet - it even includes dessert and a drink - for a resonable price. I've been to this place several times and liked it so much I used them to cater a corporate event at my company. We celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month one fine Thursday with lunch (for 100!) from Old San Juan. That made for some very happy people, and I was the hero! Places like this deserve a good following so that they thrive and multiply! Pros: Friendly and efficient service. Great food. Cons: Only con I can think of is parking - there's not much of it. more

Like home 1/23/2007

Traditional Puerto Rican cooking!!! Everything taste like my Grandmother's cooking....well, almost. Pros: The food Cons: a bit over priced more

Good typical Puerto Rican food in a comfortable atmosphere 10/29/2006

If you've never tried Puerto Rican food, you should - it's very tasty, although mostly fried so best to eat it ocassionally. Try their different varieties of ""mofongo"" (smashed plantains) for a delicious meal. And their thick and juicy pork chops are sure to satisfy even the largest of appetites. A must try when you are in the mood for something different. Pros: Friendly service, ample parking Cons: Lots of fried food more
