"rehearsal dinner"

I'm getting married next Saturday morning (12/15/12) on the beach at the Courtyard Marriott in Isla Verde. Just a small wedding with (as of yesterday) 17 guests. Can anyone make a restaurant recommendation for someplace for dinner the night before? Something with local flavor but not fancy. I've read a lot of good reviews here about Punto de Vista, but am worried that might be too casual? Any thoughts?

Courtyard is in Isla Verde, Punto de Vista is in Old San Juan, almost seven miles away.

Punto de Vista is a too casual place, indeed. It is good for a snack and drinks. The place and the building are not what I understand that you are looking for, to have a comfortable place for your party.

In Isla Verde there is Metropol, a cuban restaurant. It is not expensive, good to host a group like yours, and its food is very similar to ours. You can also walk from the Marriott Courtyard.

Other places are in Piñones, but you would need to get transportation yet as nearby as it is.

Remember to call ahead and tell how many people will attend.

Try Soleil. It is a beachfront restaurant 5 minute car drive from your hotel which offers free transportation. http://soleilbeachclub.com/

If it's not tool late, you can also check out Barrachina in Old San Juan. We are having our rehearsal dinner there next year. Apparently, it's a pretty popular place for reharsal dinners as they have a separate website for them: http://rehearsaldinnerpr.com

We went to metropol in Isla Verde. We were able to walk from the Courtyard which was a plus They accommodated our group of 19 well. It was a little slow but to be expected with a large group. Food was good. Thanks to everyone.

Did you have your rehearsal dinner (and wedding) yet? How did it go? I am looking to host a rehearsal dinner in December for my son's wedding.

The price at Barrachina seems right for me!! What else can you tell me about it? Would appreciate any input you can offer!

NYElise,

You should also look at Metropol. The food is excellent. Authentic food, mostly PRican.
