Very quainty place. An authentic bistro with an interesting selection. Fair prices, quick service, perfect taste. You can feel and taste the french italian influence. Whatever you order, try the french croissant and the mimosas.

We really enjoyed our lunch here! I'm vegetarian, my husband is not and we were each able to find something wonderful to eat. If it's on the specials-of-the-day menu, order the carrot and parmesan soup. It was easily the best soup I've ever had and I am still craving it! The drinks were also very, very good! Go, relax, and... More

This place is so authentic Old San Juan. I'm sure that it has been here forever and you really feel like you've gone back in time. We loved the second floor up for drinks and dessert in the evening. The deco, the latin music, the antique chairs and tables, the open balcony doors overlooking the quaint streets below along with... More

We were on a day trip that day and we came back to Old San Juan a little late ~830ish, and this place was right on the corner one block away from our hotel. As we perused the menu we were surprise by the many options of healthy eats, we gave it a try and it was delicious!

Just moved to San Juan and I could eat at Saint Germain everyday. The atmosphere is delightful, the servers are incredibly friendly, and the food is absolutely out of this world. If you are lucky enough to be in town on a Sunday you will be graced with Saint Germain brunch, which is the perfect brunch set up. You get... More

One day in Old San Juan brought my husband and I to St Germain for lunch. I opted for ceviche and ginger lemonade, which were bursting with flavor. Lentil soup was unforgetable. Hummus,pesto and chicken made for a delicious sandwich. Fresh, light, and reasonably priced fare make SGB a not miss!
