Wait staff knew very little about GF but was friendly and tried to help by checking with the kitchen. Kitchen told me I could not eat the rice (not sure why no rice?!?), so the only thing for me to eat was mofungo. Disappointing.

They don't have a dedicated fryer so nothing fried is safe for celiac. The rice and the mashed legumes are safe to eat and so are the grilled meats. Their menu changed drastically after the pandemic, so they don't have many options to choose in general. Celiac husband ordered skirt steak with rice with green pigeon peas and a piña colada and he said it was good and didn't get sick.

Great food! Highly recommended when in San Juan. They don’t have a gluten free menu but the waiter was knowledgeable on what had gluten and breading. They have lots of grilled fish, chicken, and steak to choose from.

The menu did not state gluten free options but when I asked, the server was helpful. I know paella is usually GF so I went with that and it was delicious and I did not have any reaction.

I had an absolutely wonderful experience eating here! First off, I am a sensitive celiac. I did bring a gluten free card that was transcribed in Spanish (and I do know how to speak basic Spanish) so that helped a lot! Definitely bring a card. The waitress was wonderful and had a conversation with the manager and head chef. They were able to specially cook me mofongo with skirt steak. And honestly it was one of the most delicious meals I had the entire time during the trip. And I did not get sick. This place is VERY busy so come early because you will have a 2 hour wait haha but it is definitely worth it.

No, they have no clue. One very rude employee told me one dish was not gluten free because it has butter. There are better places to eat in Old San Juan. Don't waste your time (and get sick) there.

Great local cuisine and while they do not have a GF menu most of the food is prepared from scratch and staff are knowledgeable about ingredients. I ate here twice during my stay in PR and had no gluten reaction.
