Visiting San Salvador? Here Are Some Restaurants You Must Check Out

It matters little that El Salvador is the smallest country in Central America because it’s one of the best countries to visit for food!

There’s no better place to explore high-end restaurants, burger joints, art cafes, and neighborhood canteens serving up authentic Salvadorian cuisines than San Salvador, the country’s capital. And the good news is that the country has reopened for tourism!

With a negative PCR test result obtained within 72 hours before take-off, you can travel to El Salvador with no quarantine required, regardless of nationality. Now, with that out of the way, eat to your heart’s content at these spectacular food joints!



  • Rustico Bistro

The long queue here is mainly made up of ex-pats and tourists because the familiar taste of home is served in its dishes.

Rustic Bistro is a very famous place. Both locals and vacationers agree it offers the best burgers in the city.

The burgers come with succulent beef patties and different toppings like caramelized onions. And other top sellers are pulled pork sandwiches and hot dogs.

So, if you crave a hearty burger, yummy cheesecake, or sinfully delicious brownies, then head on to Rustico Bistro.


  • Los Tacos de Paco

Los Tacos de Paco serves authentic Mexican food in the capital city and doubles as an art gallery and bookshop!

It’s a great place to meet like-minded locals if you have a flair for arts and literature while munching on classic Mexican dishes and street food staples.

There are cheesy golden quesadillas and crisp tacos aplenty for you! Oh, and there is an abundance of cold beer to go with all that cheese too.


  • II Bongustaio

Great quality Italian food, excellent service, first-rate cocktails, and elegant setting overlooking a verdant garden and terrace; what’s not to love about Il Bongustaio?

Order fresh pasta dishes and salt-baked fish, then end your meal with a decadent chocolate souffle or any other meal dish that piques your curiosity from the extensive menu!
