A quaint little restaurant within east walking distance from pretty much any central hotel in San Pedro. The prices were very reasonable and the food was delicious. The portions were above average.

One of our favorite spots in San Pedro. 10/10 meals have all been fantastic. The prices are the best in town. They make pupusas by hand right in front of the restaurant, it’s an experience not to be missed

Family run feels like home but quite professional. Pupusas are a national dish for El Salvador and I won’t bother trying to explain, others reviews will likely do so. I can tell you, watch them being made fresh for you. I tried both pork and...mixto…excellent. My ex is Salvadoran…these are as good as hers!More

This place is amazing! I visited three times on my weeklong vacation. The stew chicken is great for the price. The Pupusas are to die, for we tried almost all of them, but the mixed pupusa is the best. Not to mention, the owners awesome....And bring your cash, no cards. Nobody seem to mind since the Pupusas were amazing. Don’t sleep on this place.More

We stopped by Papuseria Salvadoreno for lunch on a Sunday afternoon (it was Christmas Eve!). The place wasn't that crowded, but it was the middle of the afternoon on Christmas Eve! Our waiter (one of the owners) let us know right away that they would...be closing early for the holiday, which was fine with us because we were really there to try the papusas. We enjoy trying foods from different cultures, and we must say that papusas are pretty spectacular! It's a native dish from El Salvador, and looks much like a pancake, and in fact they are often served in a stack, like pancakes. We tried a couple of the "mixed" papusas, a combo of meats inside. It was delicious, and the sauce (a thin brown gravy) served on the side was amazing. We also order a lobster quesadilla to save for later. It was darn good too! The house margarita was quite tasty! It was so wonderful to chat with the owner about his home country, the amazing turnaround the country has experienced, and just chatting about the El Salvador culture in general. An amazing family run place, and the food is terrific! We'll be back! Highly recommend Papuseria Salvadireno in San Pedro!More

We ate here multiple times. Very affordable food and drinks (our cheapest stop on the island). Service was superb and food delicious. Recommend it above all other places if you are limited to one stop for island food.

Tasty, authentic, plenty of locals... We've been twice already and plan to go again before we leave. Such tasty pupusas and ceviche! You can't go wrong... And a bargain, given the handmade, quality product. Remember to bring cash. What a gem!

Was just introduced to Pupusas!!! Such a nice subtle, flavorful food! Cheesy warm treats! We tried 5 flavors! The Pork & Spinach were our favs! Staff were so genuine and kind! Loved that we got to hear about their story of how they have grown...over the years! The most affordable dinner we’ve shared on the island! So good! A must visit!

This is a great casual dinner spot where you can get a lot of food for a great price. We had fish ceviche, 5 different pupusas and beef tostada and took home a lot of leftovers. You really only need the pupusas - they’re fresh...and cheesy and delicious. If I were here longer, I would go back every day.More
