The atmosphere was just right with dim lights, excellent service, interesting cocktails, pleasant music, and delicious food! I will definitely be back during my next San Juan visit.

The first time we visited was March 2016, we loved it so much we returned December 2016. It's a great way to start off a holiday. My husband and myself love the casual relaxed atmosphere. The drinks are made with great care, the food is delicious! If you go during happy hour 4-7 pm daily, ASK FOR THE HAPPY HOUR... More

We had three tapas and a pitcher of Sangria. The food was OK, but nothing memorable, the Sangria was tasty (a lot of fruit juices). All of this (with the tip) cost us $80.00, not cheap for the Caesar salad, chicken skewers and some roasted potatoes.

We originally wanted to visit a particular spot in Old San Juan for a dinner of tapas selections. Instead we opted to stay in the Candado area and this place suited our fancy. We were well rewarded with a wonderful listing of various tapas selections. Each different one we ordered was wonderful. I believe we tried five or six selections... More

My husband and I were looking for a tapas dinner. So we checking out Trip Advisor and found Bar Gitano. The restaurant itself offers indoor and outdoor seating. The atmosphere inside the restaurant is relaxed and friendly. The table are not on top of each other and the service was really good. Now onto the food. The tapas was really... More

The relaxed atmosphere & excellent service were the beginning of a great experience of sampling delicious tapas! We had Spanish peppers, cerviche, bacalao, arugula beet salad, chorizo pizzette for Tapas all great choices. The churros for dessert were amazing. Everything was fresh homemade & gastronomically pleasing. The white sangria was great also!

Menu had a great assortment of hot and cold tapas at a reasonable price. We sat on the sidewalk which provided great people watching. Drinks were good. Service was a little slow but not frustratingly so.

Reviews were good ... so we were very disappointed. Everything felt like it was hastily made in the kitchen. Pitcher of Sangria : fruitless except for two lonely grapes. Two paella plates -- seafood and meat -- but portions were small and lacking any saffron so I'm not sure how they justify the $28 and $34 price tag. Tapas were... More

Food was good. We ordered the Paella Mainera it was overpriced at $34.00 There was too much rice and not enough seafood. Waitress was Rossana. The service was poor. She was inattentive because she was busy speaking to a friend at the bar. We had to ask other waiters to ask her to come over when we needed service. The... More
