329 Calle Recinto Sur, San Juan, 00901

Located in the hip hotel Chateau Cervantes, Panza (named after Don Quixote's sidekick), is one of Old San Juan's chicest eateries. In the high-ceilinged, soft-lit dining room, fashionable hotel guests sample chef Rafael Alejandro's creative modern-tropical dishes—like lobster bisque flavored with coconut and whipped to a foamlike consistency; or tuna cutlets rolled in plantain flakes and served with a guava glaze. The pain perdu, a crunchy-moist bread pudding with maple syrup, guava sorbet, and pineapple marmalade, makes for a decadent finish.

 

Tip: Among the extensive selection of Spanish wines is an especially good Albariño, a crisp white that pairs beautifully with seafood.
