It opened in 1848 and has been run by the Rojos family since 1900 and some historians claim that La Mallorquina is the first eating establishment in Puerto Rico.
The restaurant's original owners, Antonio Vidal Llinás and others, came from Palma de Mallorca,
Spain; that's why they named their restaurant La Mallorquina, which loosely translated into
English means The Woman from Mallorca.
Puerto Rico's first elected governor,
Luis Muñoz Marín, was also one of the famous people to visit the restaurant.
