Fodor's Expert Review Patio del Nispero

$$$ Old San Juan Caribbean
Once a convent, the boutique El Convento Hotel is home to El Patio del Nispero, its signature restaurant. Dining here is alfresco, in the impressive interior courtyard. The menu developed by chefs Luis Castillo and Rafael Alamo is Caribbean with strong local influences. The greens come from the fourth-floor garden and many ingredients are sourced directly from neighboring farms. Traditional rice and beans are served as cod-battered croquettes with tomato aioli. Smoked pork loin is set on top of a pigeon pea risotto with fried root vegetables in a red pepper coulis. When making a reservation, request the chef's table tasting for the ultimate dining experience.
