Melao Bistro - Capital Plaza, San Juan

Lobster ravioli with a sweet balsamic reduction finished with chive oil - pure heaven.

Melao Bistro is walking distance from Old San Juan, but a world apart. There are no parrots to be found here, just a low key environment with delicious refined cooking. Open six days a week, Melao serves lunch or dinner in a relaxed atmosphere and is a favorite among the locals. Healthy fare, guava cheesecake, and mango mojitos are just a few

of your options. This family run restaurant takes pride in its homemade desserts and it shows!

    No se engañen por el tamaño del lugar. El sabor de la comida es deliciosa, la calidad y presentación es esquisita. El precio, muy por debajo de lo que uno esperaría. De hecho, en cualquier otro lugar pagarías mucho, muchísimo más por la misma calidad. ¡El arroz mamposteao es el mejor que he probado en cualquier sitio y los postres son fuera de este mundo!

    Do not be fooled by the size of the place. The flavor of the food is delicious, quality and presentation is fantastico. The price, far below what one would expect. In fact, elsewhere pay much, much more for the same quality. The mamposteao rice is the best I’ve tried anywhere and desserts are out of this world!

    La comida…excelente y el trato bien cordial en un ambiente agradable y frente a la bahia con muuuucho fresco. El churazco te lo sirven como gustes… y si quieres un “Mojito” te los sirven de varios sabores.

    Alguna vez has visitado un restaurante con tus amistades donde entre copas y risas has probado cada bocado de la mesa y, como resultado de esa osadía, has jurado volver para pedir cada plato degustado? Ese es Melao. Con atmosfera esencialmente refrescante, Melao, ofrece una variedad de platos hasta para el paladar mas estricto. Cada plato, el cual se distingue por su implacable y único sabor, deja en cada consumidor una satisfacción sublime, no sin mencionar los postres lo cual son un pedazo de gloria en tu boca….experimentalo…..

    Wonderful!! We have more comments from those in the know! We are going to use the computer translation for these, so know that they are not exact, but you will get the idea. We may have to get a bilingual advisor…how great would that be!

    Here goes:
    The excellent food… and the warm good treatment in an pleasant atmosphere and against the fresh bay with muuuucho. Churazco serves it to you as you like… and if you want a “Mojito” serve them to you as several flavors.

    and:
    Sometimes you have visited a restaurant with your friendships where between glasses and laughter you have proven each mouthful of the table and, as a result of that boldness, you have sworn to return to request each tasted plate? That is Melao. With essentially refreshing atmosphere, Melao, offers a variety of plates until for the strict palate but. Each plate, which is distinguished by its implacable and unique flavor, leaves in each consumer a sublime satisfaction, not without mentioning desserts which is a piece of glory in your mouth….experimentalo …..

    Hummmm. Después que saboreas la comida de Melao, no quieres ir a ningún otro lugar a comer. No sólo son platos agradables a la vista, sino que tienen un sabroso, riquísimo, brutal, sabor. Algo diferente con un toque especial que te provoca a querer comer otra vez. De verdad que el chef se luce preparando tan exquisitos platos. ¿Y los postres? Deliciosos al paladar, algo diferente y único. Visita a Melao, no te arrepentirás.
