We had an afternoon snack at Casa Cortes. We tried the frozen Mochas and the fresh made churros. The chef was busy creating a christmas tree made from chocolate, and we watched him pass our table with sheets of tempered chocolate as he added layers to his creation. The restaurant was a nice mix of locals and tourists. It was... More

This is a restaurant and bar. But it also has chocolate in many forms at the front counter. We stopped in and bought a few pieces and watched their video on making the chocolate. Nice place to visit with in Old San Juan - even if it is just for the Chocolate.

Theverything waiter Marc was sweet and tried to make sure we got everything we needed. You'll need an acquired taste for the place, but over all good experience.

Waited to be seated for 20 minutes, no employee came to the reception desk, a couple of them walk in and out of the restaurant, passed beside us and not even looked at us. We were not the only ones that left because of the same treatment.

We thought it was going to be a chocolate themed museum, but it was a normal exhibit of local art, which was fine. The food all had a chocolate twist on it, which was cool. The atmosphere was great and service at the restaurant and shop were awesome.
