After a week of eating too much mufungo it was a delight to dine at Verde Mesa. The food was amazing, fresh tasty and healthy while still feeling like a indulgence. They don't take reservations so go put your name on the list and go for a wal.

Being vegetarian and into healthy food, I picked this over other recommended restaurants in Old San Juan. The food was amazing, and the wine by the glass selection even better, but it was too pricey (the bill was around 45 $ for a quinoa salad and a glass of wine) and I am not sure about the service. Waitress was... More

It is a mistake to believe that this restaurant is purely vegetarian. It is definitely not. It was a wonderful experience. I ate there once for lunch and again for dinner. It did not disappoint. The restaurant is small and absolutely charming. It is decorated with art deco items, mirrors, lighting. The food was exceptional. A small menu with blackboard... More

Our group consisted of folks with varying tastes and in this restaurant everyone left happy and satisfied. Our waiter was very attentive and spent time going over the daily specials and answered questions we had about the menu. I chose the rice dish filled with golden raisins and nuts and other wonderful tastes topped with salmon. It was served with... More

Great place for vegetarians or anyone who wants a healthful meal. I've been here twice and enjoyed the friendly people and incredible food. I would recommend any of the juices and tonics, the hummus to start, and the rice dish. I've also had the eggplant sandwich that they sometimes offer on their specials menu. Highly recommend this restaurant!

We visited this charming restaurant for lunch and enjoyed a good but pricey meal. I had the rice dish with no protein and it was still over $10 . My husband had a French (Belgian) beer for $10 and it wasn't even a large bottle. Some of the items on the menu were not available, namely salads as they were... More

We always eat well when we are in PR, but this quaint little spot is a new favorite. It's located in OSJ on a quiet street(not far from our fave hotel-El Convento). The space is tiny and adorable. It has tin ceilings covered in hanging lights, mismatched tables and chairs, and antique mirrors and objects on every wall. It is... More

Loved this place!! Great interesting plates served leaning heavily on the vegetarian side of the aisle! Our Server was helpful with their "chalkboard" menu. It appears they do change their specials frequently. We enjoyed the Guiso Curry and the Arroz Verde Mesa Rice.....a little pricy for lunch but worth it. Highly recommend.

Thank WHStoneman
