Well worth taking a break in this lovely inside court yard in the El Convento Hotel. The food is only ok and the prices are steep but they are everywhere in OSJ. This is the place to take a break after walking the old city.

Husband took pork tacos and i took snapper filet. The quality was not amazing and we had to wait a while to get our food. We were the only customers. Only positive note: the pina colada was really good. Location is cute.

This restaurant and bar is in the El Convento Hotel. The courtyard makes you feel like you are in Spain. The drinks are generous and the food is Puerto Rican and authentic. This is a beautiful spot for drinks or a meal.

Cab can't be more than $10. It's also a lovely walk and you should walk a lot in Old San Juan. The city is small and delightful. I don't think you will need a reservation but you could call ahead just to feel better.
