    The food was amazing and for one of our party it was their first time to San Juan, although we knew of the time limit on the table, we were left alone after we'd finished and we weren't rushed out of the door. One observation is the music was slightly too loud, as the restaurant was busy it felt slightly intrusive. Other than that great food, and great service.

    Never tested sangria so sweet - not necessarily a good thing. Staff came over every 60 seconds to take our order - again not a good thing. The food was tasty but very salty and the steak tasted Chinese, not Spanish. I thought the prices were very high for the quantities. I left feeling thirsty, hungry and wondering why i waited so long to get a booking at this restaurant.

    Perfect little authentic Spanish tapas restaurant. Food was delicious from the fresh bread and papas bravas to start, to the marinated anchovies and the cod cheeks. Plenty of choice behind the bar, I opted for the sangria which was lovely and then some almond cake and ice cream to finish off. Would definitely recommend this restaurant and would imagine it would be lovely in the summer with the outdoor seating. Waiting staff were friendly and kept the food coming. Really enjoyed the whole experience and hope to visit again soon

    First time visiting Bar San Juan, we had a table booked outside so the noise level was low. A heater kept us nice and warm throughout our meal. The service was excellent and the staff were very helpful answering any questions and giving guidance on any of the dishes we enquired about. We didn't have to wait too long for the food and when it came it was obviously freshly cooked and each dish was absolutely delicious. The star for me was the fillet steak pieces over potatoes, we will be returning to this restaurant again
