El Toro Salao

367 Calle Tetuan
San Juan, 00901, Puerto Rico
TEL: (787) 722-3330

Meaning the salty bull, El Toro Salao celebrates the Spanish influence in Puerto Rico. Chef Guillermo Gonzalez has crafted a menu of Spanish tapas, including serrano ham croquettes with a guava rum glaze. The menu also has more substantial fare, such as Spanish flatbread pizzas and the rice-based arroz con pollo and paella. The restaurant is located inside a townhouse in the historic Old San Juan district, and the décor is dominated by the bullfighting posters adorning the walls, a fitting homage to the pervasive Spanish influence.

Insider Tip:

Request outdoor seating on the square. These tables have added ambiance and are perfect for people watching in Old San Juan.
