Great place, great beer and plenty of variety of good beers to choose from. I always recommend this place to every friend that visits Puerto Rico and visits Old San Juan. If you're walking thru the Old San Juan streets and get thirsty you have to stop there.

Job related travel to the island, as a beer geek started searching for good night spots and found this place. After almost an hour in the tiny bar I ask the bartender were all the people are and she showed me the garden, its big but as cozy as the indoor bar. Huge selection of craft beers and some local...

I went to Taberna Boricua on a friday night, and it was surprisingly not crowded like the other nightlife spots in San Juan. The back of the place is spacious, comfortable and relaxing. Wide selection of craft beers to try out!

The bar has a great outdoor space with a wide variety of beers. It is in a very good location close to the financial district of San Juan. The only negative aspect about the place is the parking.

Real nice outdoor patio in back, nice selection of on tap and bottled beers (no, make that REAL nice) friendly competent bartenders. They say they have BBQ, didn't see or smell any signs of it, but ordered it off the menu anyway. Don't expect chicken, ribs or brisket, are quesadillas bbq? But hey its Puerto Rico, other things were OK.

You have an a/c'd indoor bar and a beer garden on the back. I always prefer the back outdoors bar. Chill atmosphere, great to talk with friends. Great beer variety, always has something new to try.

The place is fun, I'm not gonna lie but it's so small it's hard to walk if it gets packed. The beers are also a bit too pricey, more expensive than Taberna Lupulo or any spot in Old San Juan. With that being said, I prefer to go to old San Juan where there is more space and I can... More

Service is usually lacking and it's always upsetting that they have a large amount of beers unavailable. You end up having to look all over the menu and then settle with what hey have. I'm rating it very good to be generous, cause they do have a couple of good small plates and the ambience is nice for evenings out.

I have wanted to go here but every time I drove by I thought twice about parking since this part of town is very desolate at night. This time though I went and was pleasantly surprised by its laid back atmosphere and beer selection. Will make a return visit.
