CARLI’S FINE BISTRO & PIANO is the place to gather.

where locals and international patrons enjoy a unique live musical and fine dining experience.

Our tight-knit staff will make sure you’re well taken care of as you savor an exotic assortment of gourmet tapas and international entrees, or sip on your favorite martini from our classic bar in the main room or under the stars with a view of the San Juan Bay from our open terrace. As a former touring musician himself, playing with a range of incredible talents including The Beach Boys, you can often find Carli at the piano in the evenings. Whether you’re looking for a romantic dinner accentuated with classic jazz or a fun night out with friends during a rockin’ 60’s and 70’s night, we’ll make sure your time with us will be memorable for years to come.
