Today while visiting Old San Juan we stopped at Verde Mesa for lunch. Upon entering you'll find a small, eclectically decorated room... probably not more than 10 tables. The menu is limited and a big % of dishes leaned towards vegetarian which we typically don't order. However we'd read such great reviews we wanted to try it. We started with... More

Contemporary French, Farm to Table. Well executed and very attentive service. Some commenters complained about waits and not getting in when tables are empty. My perception is that this restaurant does not set u at a table unless they have enough staff on that day to maintain the dining experience. Probably the most perfectly cooked and smoked octopus that I've... More

The drinks are refreshing and made with local fruits! The salmon is done PERFECT!!! We had lunch on a Saturday and the restaurant was full but worth the wait on the park across the street with San Juan bay view.

Our jeweler told us about this little gem of a restaurant and we could NOT have been happier! Everything about it was delightful from the ambience to the service, the food and drinks - literally everything was wonderful. We had the herbal drinks to start, salmon (meal and salad) for our entrée, and shared a delicious dessert. Of note the... More

We stopped at Verde Mesa after a day in Old San Juan and were blown away by the food, service, and atmosphere. Our server gave us great recommendations. Everything tasted extremely fresh. There was attention to detail in every aspect of the meal. This is a great place if you're looking for somewhere a little different than any other restaurant... More

Lovely food and wine! We had the ceviche and the day specials, all were delicious! The restaurant is also in a very cute area in Old San Juan. Tip - come early! People queue to get a table from 17:00.

the atmosphere is supercute, and the food was great. Wine selection was ok, but for us europeans it`s too overpriced. But you don`t god there for the wine, you go there for a healthy and delicious dinner, far away from puertorican greasy fried plantains!

Had Christmas Eve dinner there with my family. We got there about 45 minutes before it opened and were the third group in line. We were seated at 6pm when it opened. There are only a few menu selections available each night and they had a few specials for Christmas. The food was fresh and well prepared and the service... More

We were one of the first people in line before the restaurant opened for the dinner. The food menu was eclectic and cocktails were infused with house made concoctions. The service was very pleasant, but a bit spotty due to all people sitting at once and unsettled chef's menu, but we were never rushed. Definitely come for dinner, but be... More
