Stopped in to see what the great reviews were about and ended up writing one myself.
This charming little Restaurant is located in the heart of Old San Juan. The manager on the ground level floor welcomed me and graciously took care of me. I had lunch twice at St Germains and maybe because of the enormous August heat, I had the awesome cobb salad with a light, crispy sparkling house wine followed by homemade carrot cake and fabulous coffee. The salad was fresh, had tons of crispy bacon, atacados, hard boiled egg and tomatoes etc. The service was excellent and always gracious. My second visit, just could not get enough of the salad and again, it was fabulous.
One review below mentioned the building's history so I had to really check this place out. The first floor is where I ate both times, floor two is darker, more intimate setting and I met the gracious, young chef who let me wander about even though they were not open. He showed me pictures of the activist who had lived on the second floor. I stood on the balcony where the activist had stood and faced American solders who pointed guns at him.
I then went up to the rooftop restaurant and was greeted by the gracious young chef whom I had met on my first visit. Again, he let me wander about and ask questions. Cocktails and more substantial food tends to be served on the 3rd level. Yes, they do have cocktail hour.
St Germain's is gracious, serves delicious food, and has a very interesting history behind it. Pricing was very reasonable. Enjoy.
