Very nice white wine sangria and pleasant outdoor seating, but tapas offerings were pretty standard/mediocre. Portion sizes and value were pretty good and not a bad place to fill up or have a few patio drinks but not anything special to recommend if you're after some unique cuisine while on Old San Juan.

Often the place with great location does not have food and service to match. This does. The chori sliders are superb. The El Toro sandwich came with good fries. The vegetable flatbread was tasty but a bit undersized for the price. Great location and overall good food.

Just went to visit Old Puerto Rico, walked in Toro Salao for lunch, what a nice surprise! Food was exceptional, tasty, fresh and creative. I had the steak sandwich on home made brioche bread and it melted in my mouth. We also saw other items on the menu passing by us and they looked one better than the other. Service... More

We where walking thru the streets of Old San Juan and stopped for refreshments and something to nibble. We ordered two beers, fried calamari's and brava potatoes. They where excellent.

After a morning circumventing the perimeters of Old San Juan and meandering through the streets of the eastern part of the old city, we decided to scout out the numerous eateries between the Columbus Plaza and the docks. Toro Salao seemed to have a decent selection of Spanish tapas and refreshing drinks. We split a delicious spicy chicken panini and... More

I travel often and come from NYC where we don't like to wait nor settle for mediocre. I highly recommend this restaurant in every facet. From the food to the drinks to the service to being greeted with a smile and in English to boot!

My family and I had an amazing dinner here tonight. The empanadas were perfectly golden, the shrimp were cooked perfectly, the flatbread was divine, and the Sangria was the best I have had in my week in this lovely city. The service was also fantastic. We were helped by Joel who gave us personal service and made sure that we... More

After waiting 20 minutes to be seated on the patio, our server disappeared for over 10 minutes when we asked for the wine list. He was polite enough but after a half hour of waiting to eat at this restaurant, we started to order and were told 4 of the 5 tapas dishes we wanted were not available that day.... More
