What do we highlight in Santaella? Lush vegetation, retro decor and avant-garde recipes.
In San Juan's nocturnal and festive environment par excellence, the 'placita de Santurce' (Santurce Square), you'll find another of the best places to eat in the city: The Santaella, which is ideal for a few drinks after-work or later on. Its trendy decor includes retro air bulbs that are suspended over the tables with views of a lush garden. The menu offers regional specialities combined with international dishes, so you'll find anything that you'd like to try on their menu. The recipes that mix Caribbean cuisine with contemporary avant-garde are booming in Puerto Rico, so you'll have to book if you want to guarantee a table. In the Santaella, you can experience their 'ensalada de siete pisos' ('seven-story' salad) (nothing less), Octopus with chorizo and chickpeas in sherry, beef carpaccio with Parmesan or fried taro (cassava) with smoked duck.
