As a vegan it is always challenging to find good places to eat while traveling. Here there were a few menu items, and the food was delicious. Service is great as well

Hour and a half later they come to our table to told us that they do not have ingredients to fulfill another of our order. At that time,... More

This was a great find for dinner for our families. We had 5 adults and 5 kids under 10. Decent kids menu but great adult food. The nachos were very good and the shrimp tacos were incredible. You will not regret your visit.

Queso fundido was solid as a rock, waited more than 30 mins for our appetizer, an hour and 45 mins for our meal, WHAT IS HAPPENING IN PUERTO RICO, mi gente, what is going on, so many good people and sad service.

They do outrageously wonderful and subtle things, in general, and specifically with meats. The flavors are fresh and unique. When we first walked in, we were hit with the aroma of lime. Try it and you won't be disappointed. And yes, the service is slow. Our waitress compensated for that a bit with her her knowledge and helpful attitude.

Went to Bartola to celebrate our 36th wedding anniversary. This was an excellent choice for a Tuesday dinner. Service, location, price and ambiance/decor met our expectations. Located in upbecoming trendy Miramar section of San Juan. There are a series of new, upscale and elegant, yet fair priced restaurants in this area. Recomended 👍

Lack adequate staff 3 people to deal with customers in groups of 6 or 2 people. Slow service & overly priced $12.95 per order of Shrimp tacos. We waited over an 1 hour for 2 taco orders. The food was good but not worth the wait.

Authentic mexican food, good ambiance, attentive waitress, excellent margaritas and don't forget dessert in the heart of Miramar. In summary is the best Mexican restaurant I have tasted in San Juan.
