Divino is one of the more modern tapas bars in Old San Juan, but has quickly captured the attention of both the local and the visiting crowds. It serves the famous, hearty Spanish appetizers in an exhilarating atmosphere. In fact, there are daily Flamenco or Spanish guitar performances. The decor is traditional Spanish tavern-style. Energizing folkloric music is also performed here. Tapas choices include Serrano Ham, Iberian Chorizo, Manchego Cheese, and Ali-Oli Potatoes. There is also full bar service available, with excellent Spanish wines on offer.
This is a real Spanish Tapas Bar and dance club in San Juan. Come to see people dancing Sevillanas and Flamenco. Professional dancers come here in their spare time...
Only problem is that being in Old San Juan was such a hassle that they moved on July 11, 2007 to a larger location with parking at Hato Rey, near the business district and commercial center, Great for locals, but really out of the way for tourists. Still, a cab will get you there and the trip's worth it...
Unfortunately, all four of us tourist felt pressured into spending more and more money, eating and drinking. Two of the dancers in the flamenco show were average, the rest were obvious beginners. The waiters and supervisor were courteous, but obviously pressured by their two bosses. I would not return again nor recommend it to others.
I love the ambiance! It is located in Old San Juan, so the Puerto Rico, and as soon as you walk in you feel like you're in a different world and once you've been there a few times, it feels very familial. They have their regulars that go every week, sometimes twice a week, for the ambiance, the food, and Sevillanas!
Yes, this is the only place that is purposefully set up so YOU can dance Sevillanas. They have a mini-class at the beginning, then they play several sets of Sevillanas. In between the Sevillanas they play salsa, merengue and a tiny bit of Rumba Flamenca.
The guys that work there have been there for while and are very nice and cordial. Every once in a greeeeaaat while when things aren't too busy (hardly never) they even dance a sevillana.
I've been to Spain three years in a row, plus the two times when I was little, and really the food is better than what you find in any ordinary tapas bar in Spain.
You are very hard pressed to find anywhere in the world a place with this relaxed, fun Sevillanas ambiance with a regular following.
Divino Bocadito is a perfect place to have a great time and enjoy of excellent spaniard food. It's a place where you ALWAYS feel welcome with the good atention from owners and employees. The music, dances and show are important part of the unique and delightful place located in old San Juan. Yesssssss, I'm looking forward to visit again Divino Bocadito and stay all night long.
Is a place were you feel like family. Always a personal welcome from owners and employees. They remember your preferences, and you find a frequent group of atendees, that makes the place warmer. Good food, always presenting new Spaniard amenities.
I have been visiting Divino for a couple of years because the atmosphere is great and they make a very good paella.
Last time I visited was for my birthday a couple of weeks ago and me and my friends had a wonderful time. They had a Flamenco show that night(I went on a Saturday) but I had previously visited on a Friday and they also had a show that ran in half hour intervals.
Thanks to David and Tony(owners) and the rest of the friendly staff, it's always fun to visit Divivo.
Divino is Spanish for devine. No better word could come to mind to express my dining experience at Divino Bocadito. As a "paella" (rice with seafood) lover and world traveler I order the dish wherever its available. From the "Siete Puertas" in Barcelona(where I hear the King of Spain dines), Spain to "Cafe Espa�ol" in Manhattan, NYC. But, the paella here is exquisitely devine. And the flamenco and Sevillanas dancing extraordinary. And free lessons on Wednesdays to boot. Highly recommend it.
Great dinner and floor show for a reasonable price.

I had dinner here on December 1, 2004, with two Puerto Rican friends and a fellow state-sider. We had a wonderful experience. The tapas were excellent, the vegetarian paella was superb, and the dancing/music was delightful. (The dancers were amateurs, but they were terrific.) I intend to return (on vacation next time) with my familiy in the future. I am a vegetarian and I found ample selections. The frozen dessert (something like a frozen flan) was particularly scrumptious, although the name has escaped me.
