There’s nothing better than a good homecooked meal. You can travel the world and experience Michelin star restaurants and that’s great and all, but you’ll always come home craving for your mother’s cooking. And that nostalgia of tasting home-cooked food is exactly what we experienced when we visited Grand Meré in San Juan.
Tucked away in the narrow streets of the city lies a four-story restaurant and events space that’s perfect for small family gatherings or big occasions. Grand Meré came to life in 2014 as a joint business venture between the siblings who currently own and run it. Their operation started with just short orders, but they recently expanded to catering and group events! Good food with a good party? What more can you ask for?
Each of Grand Meré’s food trays is good for 10-15pax.
Experience homecooked meals created from family recipes in the first floor of their establishment, sing to your hears desire in their videoke room in the second floor, experience a more intimate yet spacious dining experience in their third floor, and party it up at their open-air roof deck!
Grand Meré’s rooftop venue can accommodate 80pax.
The videoke room can accommodate up to 30pax.
Grand Meré provides venues for big groups. Their rooftop venue can accommodate up to 80 people and if that’s not enough for you and your party, you can book the 3rd floor space which accommodates 60 people as well! Aside from their standard catering packages, they also have debut and wedding packages. They also cover birthdays, christenings, and Christmas parties! Whatever event you might have, Grand Meré has you covered.
Their best sellers include their Carbonara, Pancit Canton, Sisig, Cheesy Potato, Lumpiang Shanghai, and Beef Mami. If you’re looking for some homemade comfort food in San Juan, check out Grand Meré next time. Grand Meré is open from Monday to Saturdays at 11AM – 10PM.
