I've been to El Meson de la Roosevelt on various occasions and it never disappoints. It's a great option for brunch, lunch or dinner (even late night, since it's open until late). It offers great service and very affordable prices.

El Mesón de Roosevelt April 26, 2016 We visited this establishment late at night after a great night bowling. The place doesn't look like much from the outside. To our surprise, the inside is amazing, chic and modern. The waitress was professional and super attentive. We decided to order 3 plates and share the food because it was really late.... More

Place appeals for both family meeting and social gathering. Some of the sandwiches are originals you wont be able to find elsewhere specially de seafood ones. And very good prices. Although, I found appetizers a little pricey.

This would be my number one choice for when I'm wanting some rice and beans, mofongo and any other typical Puerto Rican dish. The ambiance and service are good.

We went for lunch on a weekday, a table of three. The waiter came over to get our order and we didn't see him again until about an hour later, when we still had not received our food and called him over. He didn't apologize for our food taking almost an hour to be served but told us it would... More

If you are in the middle of Hato Rey or Roosevelt avenue this place is a very good alternative...parking is small but no problem they have valet parking! The menu is wide and very interesting but also they have daily specials like risotto, salmon and of course smoked pork chops with Guava sauce...delicious...why not a 5? Well the rice flavor... More
