Restaurants in San Juan
San Juan’s role as a U.S. territory means that the city boasts many of the same restaurant chains you would find in the United States, but make sure you take full advantage of the colorful, local food scene while visiting this seaside city. Local restaurants in San Juan are numerous and accommodate every taste.
One of the best restaurants in San Juan is Marmalade, an eatery and wine bar near the Port of San Juan and in the heart of the Old Town. This dining spot offers a multi-course meal, all with perfectly matched wine pairings. Even though the restaurant offers pasta and other great dishes in spades, their seafood dishes are the star of the show, so be sure to order from the “Flavors of the Sea and Land” section of the menu.
If you’re looking to dive right into the richness that is Puerto Rican cuisine, make a reservation at restaurants in San Juan like Santaella, which specializes in highbrow takes on classic Puerto Rican food. Of particular note are the alcapurrias, stuffed fritters with blue crab and herb salad, and the goat cheese quesadillas, topped with honey and white truffle oil.
