    Il Perugino for excellent Italian food. Also expect to pay the price in Calle del Cristo. Before going there stop by Amadeus for a pre-dinner drink in Calle San Sebastian- 45 second walk to Il Perugino. Hit Fortaleza Street (SOFO) and there you have Aguaviva, Dragonflt, Tantra, etc. In Miramar- 15 min from Old San Juan go to Chayote or Augustos. You can't go wrong.

      La Bombonera is a little bakery/breakfast place that serves excellent pastries (mallorcas are the best) with great coffee.

      Calle San Francisco 259

      I went to PR a couple of years ago and had dinner at Dragonfly one night. The food was awesome and the atmosphere was chic. I would highly recommend checking it out. The food is asian/latin fusion...super tasty.
