I had a terrible experience here unfortunately. The waitress had no idea what gluten was and told me I couldn’t eat anything here, however based on the reviews I knew SOMETHING must be gluten free. So I went with an extremely simple shrimp dish and the waitress said she would let the chef know. I should have known better but I was desperate and this specific dish I have all the time elsewhere.
Shrimp was bleh and my normal diet friend said her fish was terrible.

Well about 1 and a half hours after my meal I felt terrible and unfortunately got extremely sick in public because I got glutened.
My friend then got extremely bad food positioning after her meal (we had totally different meals by the way!) So no, I don’t recommend this place whatsoever. It got our Puerto Rico trip started on a really bad note! Lol

Ordered arroz con pollo and a steak. Both were good. For sides had the mashed potatoes and sweet plantains, which were flavorful. Service was attentive and I felt fine afterward. Would eat here again.

Good size restaurant. The waiter we spoke to was knowledgeable about gluten allergy. They said straight away that anything fried is not gluten free but grilled is gluten free. Lots of grilled meet with rice, veggies (no dairy) or mashed potatoes (have dairy). Prices about $16 to $22 for basic dinner options. Very close to Marriott.

This place is AWESOME! Quick fast casual eatery with all the delicious food you think of when in Puerto Rico at very affordable prices. I had chicken with rice that hit the spot.

Chloe Condado – San Juan, Puerto Rico

The view here alone is reason enough to visit. I could spend every evening just relaxing and having a drink on the porch. Best part is the food here is delicious as well. Had calamari rings and marinated grilled chicken mampo

Pinky’s Condado – San Juan, Puerto Rico

Great breakfast spot. Many different and interesting breakfast options. I had banana pancakes with bacon and eggs.

San Juan Smokehouse –  San Juan, Puerto Rico

Fabulous, just fabulous this dining destination is. The vibe is really nice, but the food is even better. Some of the best restaurant barbeque anywhere. I had brisket nachos and a large order of ribs with fries. Everything was great.

Silk – San Juan, Puerto Rico

The night we dined here it was a place to be and be seen. A famous Hollywood actor was present and for a good reason. The food was really good, but my picture is terrible so don’t judge by what I show. I had the Mongolian beef with fried rice that was flavorful and the meat was tender.

La Heladería Funkyberry Ice Cream – San Juan, Puerto Rico –

Some different and interesting flavor choices here. Nice place for a treat and picturesque.

Cayo Caribe – San Juan, Puerto Rico –

The food here was top notch. Highly recommend a visit here. Had crab and beef turnovers, fish bites that were GREAT, and grouper filet in coconut sauce that was out of this world with rice and beans.

Orozco’s Restaurant – San Juan, Puerto Rico

Down home cooking at its best and a must visit when in San Juan for a true flavor. I had the Puerto Rican Combination which is roast pork, rice with pigeon peas, sweet plantain, and pastel.

Ropa Vieja Grill – San Juan, Puerto Rico

Hip place with happening décor and atmosphere. Had the fried red snapper in creole sauce with sautéed vegetables and mamposteao rice.
