Description: At Dragonfly's, our candlelit atmosphere is calming and provides for intimate spaces within the restaurant. Our romantic restaurant serves plenty of vegetarian and meat dishes and has two dining areas, a lounge, and two bars. We also offer our customers a communal noodle bar. Dragonfly's sexy, ruby red, and gold interior is transporting and designed to resemble an old opium den in tropical Asia.

Highly recommended by native Puerto Ricans and others as well. It was expensive but service and food was excellent! The duck nachos are a must and the rum punch are unique. Atmosphere was quaint. Did I say the service was exceptional! A must eat place when visiting!

Dragonfly seemed to be recommended by many people on the internet so my boyfriend and I decided to try it out while we were in San Juan. There was a little wait but thankfully there is a nice little lounge area where we could go ahead and pick what we wanted while we waited. We didn't have to wait too long before we were seated, however, we were unlucky enough to have to sit next to the stairs and my chair was constantly being bumped by people needed to get by. The restaurant seemed busy and it took our waitress a VERY long time to finally get to us but she was pleasant and even had some drink recommendations that turned out well. The food didn't not blow either of us away like we were expecting. The duck was only so-so and the sushi was far more mediocre than it should of been for a place (and price) like that. However, the calamari was phenomenal and I enjoyed how they staggered bringing out each plate so we weren't overwhelmed.

While it's great to hear that the calamari was a hit, I'm sorry if we dropped the ball on service. We're always doing our best to put your feedback into action and would love a chance to impress you a bit more on a future visit.

The food is a fun fusion, but the real pleasure is in eating in the basement. The ambiance is really cool and the wait staff members are all really genuinely sweet and attentive.

food was amazing. Plum Saki was great and sushi was so fresh and tasty. I would recommend hitting this restaurant up as its the best suhi place in Old San Juan. Dennis was a great waiter
