Places to eat & drink around San Juan, Puerto Rico

Black plate of plantains

Eter Restaurant and Lounge:This upscale rooftop lounge is located in the heart of San Juan with a spectacular view of the city. Great for date night or a girls night, Eter lounge has great food, music and best of all, a rooftop pool! The grilled octopus was a delight!

Ropa Vieja Grill: If you’re looking for a place that has authentic Puerto Rican cuisine, then this is your place! I would suggest ordering the Mufungo, which is a mash of fried plantains with salt, garlic, broth, olive oil and your choice of meat in a wooden pilón. 

Tijuana’s Bar and Grill:This Mexican restaurant has a wide variety of Refreshing margaritas that not only taste great but are very photo worthy.
