This is a hip and elegant bistro which offers the finest and exquisite international, Caribbean and creative cuisine. The owner, Carli Muñoz, considered among the finest contemporary jazz pianists today, performs nightly from Monday through Saturdays. Patrons from all the world visit us to enjoy Carli's music, exquisite menu, classic bar and artistic ambiance...
Carli's has been in the golden corner of Rafael Carrion Plaza at the historic Banco Popular Building in Old San Juan Puerto Rico since December of 1998; undoubtedly recognized as the best location in Old San Juan. On the open terrace you are surrounded by historic buildings, at night add the stars and the pulse of people walking by, with a view of the San Juan Bay.
Hosts Jam Session: Yes
Directions: Dear visitor:
Beware of taxi drivers and other tourism related staff including some hotel concierges that might steer you wrong by saying that “they don't know where Carli's is” or “Carli's no longer exist”, etc. We've have repeatedly heard comments from our visitors that have encounter this unfortunate problem.
This practice comes from some restaurants owners that pay taxi drivers and hotel personnel to lure clients; especially tourists, often by discouraging them from accessing their planned destination. We don't support that practice- we love and respect our clientele and it's capacity to choose or not spending an enchanted evening with us, by our own merits.
TIP: Ask the cab driver to take you to the Banco Popular Building, on Recinto Sur Street (of course in Old San Juan).
We thank you for your patronage.
