Restaurante El Estribo


Restaurante El Estribo, or The Stirrup Restaurant in its English translation, is situated in the exciting Isla Verde tourist area of Carolina, Puerto Rico. As its name suggests, it has an equestrian theme inside, and serves traditional Puerto Rican style food. The menu is dominated by hearty meat dishes, which are often accompanied by local ingredients such as rice and plantain.

The restaurant receives high praise for its warm, family-friendly atmosphere and its attentive waiting staff. It is run by a welcoming couple who are always on hand to tend to guests. They will be delighted to tell you stories about their homeland, making you feel as though you are paying a visit to grandma and granddad's house.

A number of local musicians perform on stage during the meal, and between acts the owner himself will often take to the stage with his guitar to sing a number of traditional Puerto Rican songs. The restaurant has a casual vibe and food is relatively cheap, making it popular with locals and consequently a great place to soak up the local culture.
