The food was awesome. The wait wasn't that long. The girls were very nice. I went especially for the chueleta Kan Kan and I was not disappointed it was delicious.

The food was not good and we eat everything. All was fried and over fried. The drinks including the sangria and pina colada were very good. Would go back for drinks only.

Was recommended to us by friend and we were not disappointed. Food was very good and it had a great local vibe. We ordered two app's and two small dishes and it was easily enough for three if not four people.

Was recommended this place by the tour guides from the Bacardi Distillary and they were pretty good. My cousin tried their well know pork chop and it was huge. I had the Mahi Mahi, wasn't as fresh as I would have hoped, but still good. Plantains were perfect. Nice live music playing. Good Experience for some local cuisine.

We were really looking forward to this based on reviews, etc. Service was pleasant and welcoming. Food was okay - certainly not a wow experience and no good options for vegetarian daughter. Took a long while for food to get out of the kitchen.

Excellent local food. Our group tried three different entrees snd loved them all. Friendly staff and a most charming building in the heart of Old San Juan.

If asked where to have great authentic puerto rican food you will overwhelmingly hear "Raices". We had our worst meal here in Puerto Rico..food is bland and bad..servers are overly nice and accommodating so nothing taken away from them...when we were having a discussion with one of our local Uber drivers, he said the place used to be great but...

Combination of apathetic staff, small overpriced drinks, so-so cuisine made for a disappointing dinner. Cute setting. Side dish of mashed root vegetables sounded promising but was delivered dumped as an unattractive lump. Yellow rice had no taste. Shrimp lukewarm. Salmon over cooked Recommended by our cab driver. He blew it

This was my first time trying Mofongo and it was absolutely delicious. So delicious that we went back on our last night in Old San Juan and so upset that we'd missed out because they had already closed for the night Great service. Nice atmosphere and great food. Short walk from Sheraton Old San Juan. I will definitely make this... More
