Our four night (three full day) February visit to San Juan is long off; but, I'm already studying the forum and dreaming of great food, especially Spanish and Puerto Rican cuisines.
I am a bit lost about where to go in the Old San Juan area, at lunch or at dinner, for traditional Puerto Rican food. Would prefer a sit-down restaurant rather than a market stall. Saw references to Raices, but some reviews described it as "touristy". Tasca el Pescador looks good, but seems far from where we are staying at El Convento. What would you recommend?
I've identified Botegas Compostela and the Restaurant at Casa de Espana for Spanish food, and probably good bets for dinner. I understand the El Picoteo (very conveniently located in our hotel) is also pretty good for tapas. Any other recommendation?
