“Fine dinning at its best”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 via mobile

Fresh food made daily to perfection. Excellent European flavors. Wait staff and Maitre D' are there to fulfill every need.
Extra thumbs up to the Pastry Chef.
I would dine here everyday if I could afford it.
A good $140 spent for a couple but worth it!

“Wonderful Experience,Tasty Food”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

The food is delicious, tasty. The servers are very attentive and polite. Good atmosphere. Plenty of parking space or valet parking available. Well located, easy to access. Perfect place for a wedding celebration or a Sweet 16 party or "Quinceañero",

“Best paella in town”
Reviewed 14 January 2014 via mobile

I was in the mood for paella so I went direct to El Zipperle a German old fashioned restaurant in Hato Rey metro area of San Juan. Was not my first time, and I had a great paella pan at my table. All that big rice plater for me, it includes lobster instead of shrimp, a great flavorful chorizo and chicken and clamps.

Service is slow, slower than anywhere else but if you have time this is the place to go for tradition in Puerto Rico
