We were here in May 2016 and food so good we made a point to find again. Service was dismal. Food was just something to get us to next stop. I should have bought the beautiful avocado from the street vendor because they were out of guacamole. Last time has fresh made salsa....this time Old El Paso! No joke. Skip... More

Food was good. Mojito was solid. Only issue was my mom was done with her tacos before I got my food and my app came out the same time as the entree.

Came here because of the past reviews on TA and it is a great option to eat and get some drinks at Viejo San Juan, the place is also steps away from The Morro Castle. Had some fish tacos and a mango mojito. The service was fast and polite. We would come back.

Stopped for a lunch which showed to be a good move. Aircon was nice after the walk to the historic site. Very colorful interior and a nice atmosphere . Service was excellent and with a little of the buffalo Tabasco the food was great and just what we needed. Recommend that you try it out.

Stopped in with friends on Christmas Eve and sat at the bar. We just wanted to snack and drink. The Tapa's were excellent. The mixed seafood ceviche with tostones was super, the Nacho's very good as were the stuffed Jalapeños. We (some of us) had wine which was very good and others had frappe's and Mojito's. All seemed to enjoy.... More

After a morning of exploring Old San Juan we were hungry by noon. We ventured into the center part of OSJ and stumbled across Aureola. We ate inside and enjoyed the air conditioning. We needed a break from the sun. Chips and salsa were served on the house. A meal for two (enchiladas and tacos) and a beer came to... More
