    This is by far one of the best restaurants in the whole of Condado. Took the recommendation of a friend of ours that works at the hotel we’re staying at (La Concha) and seriously was BLOWN AWAY! The food was impeccable! The service (shoutout Erick) was beyond attentive! This was one of the best meals I’ve had since we were in Paris in February(it’s September) and that restaurant had 2 Michelin stars! They offer a tasting menu option or you can order from the tasting menu Al a carte - the menu changes based off what’s available, all locally sourced, and prepared soooo well! This was my partners first beef Wellington and it was perfectly prepared- would make Gordon Ramsay proud! The Yellowfin Tuna Tataki was the most perfectly prepared fish I’ve had outside of Japan! They have a full bar so if the specialty cocktails aren’t for you, order whatever…my partner doesn’t drink much and they made a special off menu cocktail that he absolutely LOVED! Definitely make sure to ask if they have anything special that day, when we were there there was a croquette that was off menu….it was the best I’ve ever had in my 15 years of coming to Puerto Rico! We will absolutely be back! HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Do not skip this place!

    Wonderful meal, and the wine pairings truly enhanced our tastings. The combinations in the menus were delightful, and I truly enjoyed courses I would not have ordered individually from a menu.

    This was not a dinner, it was an OUTSTANDING EXPERIENCE! Everything was on point! Delicious and lovely presented. You can taste the passion in every bite and drink. Passion of the farmer, of the chef, of the server, from the wine director, from the bar, etc. Best choice for our anniversary celebration.

    Celebrating my mothers first time in Puerto Rico and this place had a beautiful tasting menu. They did a phenomenal job of explaining the restaurant and where they receive they’re food from. Our servers went into great detail about each dish which helped us to experience each flavor that was carefully cooked into each dish. Amazing time and some of the best food I’ve had in a long while.

    I dined here on my own for my birthday and it was amazing!!! Yes this restaurant would be a great place for small groups and couples but I had no problem savoring all those wonderful dishes on my own! It was moderately priced for what you get, pure quality and so elegantly presented. I would definitely recommend this place for anyone who wants to get away from the regular touristy restaurants and eat locally sourced ingredients, clever dishes and amazing service.

    If you love food while enjoying the experience of tasting menus, this is the place to go. We did the wine pairing and it definitely enhanced the experience but we are also wine drinkers. Our server was so knowledgeable and explained everything well. My friend was hesitant about some of the foods but the server definitely helped ease her concerns and it was great. I promise that even though the portions are small it is very filling. We were stuffed when we left.

    Best meal we’ve had in Puerto Rico - if this was in NYC it’d be 2-3x the price! We had the pescatarian and carnivore menus, with the associated wine pairings and everything was amazing. The staff was lovely as well and accomplished our giant baby stroller.

    De los pocos restaurantes que tienen cena vegana en cursos. El curso era vegetariano pero el chef no tuvo reparo en transicionarlo a vegano. Cuentan con cenas en cursos de pescados y carnes también. Todo muy rico y muy bien presentado. El ambiente agradable y el lugar limpio. Lo único, la música muy alta para aquellos que queremos disfrutar de un ambiente más relajado. Sin duda, es un excelente lugar para tener una experiencia diferente, creativa y sabrosa!

    Not sure why, but the restaurant changed to a fixed menu. You can go for a vegetarian, pescatarian, or carnivore menu. Plates are small and you cannot add more if you’re hungry. Prices are $65, 70, 75 per person per menu. The vibe is also dead. 100% tourists. Food was good. I used to visit frequently, but the experience is just not what it used to be.
