El Siglo XX
This is a great dining option. This is the original member of the South Fortaleza Restaurant district, known as SoFo, and it is a traditional Spanish bistro. Frequented for generations, this restaurant is still renowned for its excellent Zarzuela de Mariscos, a seafood dish unequaled in terms of flavor and richness. Other dishes include paella Valenciana and several tapas. The space has a very pleasant, small tavern ambience. Crowd includes as regulars those who watch Spain's soccer league games on the monitors at the bar.
We love their extremely strong coffee!! Waiters are very friendly and super fast. Great place for breakfast to start a day with coffee hit, fresh juice and wide selection of egg dishes and fresh sandwiches! Great prices for high value! I always take there my visiting friends and everyone never got disappointing. Excellent for brunch with mimosas and sangria. As well as custom size made delicious Paella!! Unforgettable experience. Only one complain, sometimes gets too crowded.
I stop by this restaurant to have lunch everytime I go to Puerto Rico. The food, the atmosphere and the prices are excellent. The octopus salad is a must have. Our lunch is at least 2 hours with wine. I usually have the halibut (rodaballo) with rice and beans.
All of the food was great and they had exelent service!Perfect stake and there was no resterant without good food! As soon as you walk in you can smell the awesom food I've never been anywhere like it!
I used to go there every time I was in San Juan. Place is almost run down, too old, not well taken care of. I understand these buildings are over one houndred years old, I have seen better. This togethe with La Bombonera are the worst. Cleaning is at most, non-existant. They are selling you like a fantasy of what old San Juan is (or was) all about. There are better, believe me, I know.
It's great to find a comfortable restaurant that specializes in Spanish and especially Puerto Rican cuisine in Old San Juan. This is also a meeting place for "power lunches" for important members of the local citizenry, which makes people watching interesting. The food was excellent and interesting, as was the service - though we did get there for a late lunch.
I loved the paella and the stuffed mofongo with shrimp.
They also have very good Sangria and Tapas.
The overall experience was a very good one. Our group ordered a plate of local hor d'ouvres which was excellent. Also the Octopus salad is very good.
I liked the food, the spanish"Paella" is out of this world. Another person in our party had the lamb chops which were grilled and very good. Very nice variety of "Tapas", spanish hor d'ouvres.
Overall I would highly recomend it.
We have neen there a couple of times , and plan to go back again.
