San Juan Dining Question

a

My husband and i are in Puerto Rico and have had a great trip so far (I'll write up a post when its all done!) We were in San Juan for a few days and ate at great places (Jose Enrique, Marmalade, and Punta De Vista). We are now in Rio Grande, headed to Vieques in a few days.

We're going to have one night in San Juan at the end of the trip and want to do one more dining experience. We met a guy at Jose Enrique who is a "local foodie" and he recommended 3 places:
La Jaquita Baya (newer place),
Compostela
Santaella.
My DH read about 1919 in a San Juan newspaper and is intrigued.

Any thoughts on this? La jaquita baya has GREAT reviews on other sites - but nothing here. not sure if that's due to its newness. The others seem more established...

Thanks in advance and I'll be sure to post after the trip is complete...there is a lot of food down here!
