Description
Despite the costumed waiters who might set off tourist trap alarm bells in a certain kind of traveller, Raíces serves some of the best and most authentic Puerto Rican food on the island.

Best {local} food in town! Try the the garlic shrimp mofongo and their pork special

This restaurant caters to tourists. The drinks are extremely watered down so it's best to save your money if you are going to order alcoholic beverages. The food is on the higher price side in comparison to other places around San Juan but it is above average in taste. Definitely worth a trip. At least you can say you tried it. Just don't order drinks. That's a complete waste of money.

This is a tourist trap!!! The location is perfect and the atmosphere is good. The food doesn't taste as good as it looks.

This is somewhat of an expensive restaurant, but you need to go here and try the mofongo.

This is a nice restaurant offering typical Puertorican dishes at a reasonable price. It has nice atmosphere and it is located right in the Old San Juan Historic District. Buen Provecho!

This is one of my favorite restaurants for Puerto Rican Creole food. The employees dress very typical with the local clothing of the early 20th century, which makes this restaurant something colorful and interesting for locals and tourists alike. In addition, the food is very good, especially the Mofongo de Churrasco which is my favorite.

The prices, although not the cheapest for local food, are accessible and considerable considering the tourist location of the restaurant.
