Went on Valentines Day for Dinner & Jazz. The music 🎶 was fabulous as Mr. Carli, the owner, delighted the guests with his masterful jazz selections. After his set, Roberto Figueroa, sang & played Brazilian rhythms. The vibe is a cozy & cool Cafe Bistro. Just be aware that the place is small and the tables are very tightly packed so you will be aware of the other guests’ conversations.

The appetizers, Croquette Risotto Balls & the Cheese & Prosciutto plate, were fine. However, the Rib Eye Steak & Filet Mignon were way over done to what we requested. These are the most expensive entrees in the menu but they missed the mark. The 🍸 drinks were fine, but, careful if you ask for anything that’s not standard.

Overall, a fun experience and would recommend because of the vibe, music & appetizers.

Hi we go here every time we come to San Juan. Wish we could come more often. A wonderful spot for a Jazz lover. I particularly enjoy being able to sit outside and listen on a warm nite. Our experience with the food/staff and music has always been first class. A real gem in old San Juan. Thank You. Hope you made it thru the hurricane ok.

Best, D& D

Although the location was great, the waitress nice and the music beautiful, the prices were too high and the food below average, except for the spinach ravioli. The spinach salad was very small and tasteless and the penne primavera had so few vegetables it should be just called penne. We were very disappointed as it was our last meal in this city my husband and I love very much. We would not recommend anyone to spend so much money for such an very ordinary meal.

Had dinner there last night with our family for my birthday. Little slower on a Thursday night which suited us perfectly and made this restaurant which seats about 50 even more relaxed and intimate. Our waitress "Tennessee" was lovely, unhurried and attentive. We were initially disappointed that Carli would not be playing that night but Roberto on the guitar (he's there every Thursday) was even better. He played a range of Spanish and English songs in a very relaxed vibe. And the food! In a word - fantastic! Everything we had, specials or off the menu, was all delicious, perfectly prepared and presented. If you want a great and relaxed experience, go on Thursday. If you want more of an exciting jazz experience, go on the weekend. Either way, make reservations.

Nice intimate place with good jazz. Owned by the well known Carli Munoz although he did not play the night we were there, two younger players were quite good. We had the crab cakes, a little heavy on the bread, calamari, very creative and prepared to perfection, and risotto. Like many places in P.R. lots of fried offers and the appetizers had less non-fried alternatives. The mains looked great but we weren't so hungry.
Nice venue and well worth the visit.
Advisable to get reservations as this is a hot stop for the cruise ships that stop in San Juan and they can fill the whole place.

Place was recommended by a friend and we really enjoy ourselves. Food and the environment was v3ry nice. We cant forget abt the music. Carli was playing his piano and a young lady with a beautiful voice sang. Next time im in San Juan I will definitely go there again.

Cafe Carli Concierto is a friendly atmosphere and even the owner makes you feel welcomed. If you're looking for an excellent Ahi Tuna this is the place for you. They also have the best Mojiti's I have ever had. Everything made fresh. This is by far one of the best places to eat in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico.

The Food was the best we had in Puerto Rico for the week. The escargot was just delicious. The Grouper perfectly cooked. Great music, great fun! I would go back in a red hot second! Oh and you must have their famous Mojito. It really was the best Mojito I've ever had.
