The stone walls, wood finishes and lounge style seating give it a sense of being in a remote and rustic location away from it all with only 8 tables. It’s a cozy and romantic ambiance, perfect for having a unforgettable dinning experience.

OpenTable Diner 
4.0  Dined on February 16, 2018

Niche Restaurant is on my list of top 5 restaurants in San Juan, PR.

The ambience of this restaurant is perfect for special occasions or to enjoy an evening with a small group of friends.

The food is indiscutible top quality and the chef makes sure the ingredients used in every plate are as fresh as possible. The food presentation is very good and the food taste combines different styles and flavors.

The only feedback I have is in regards the costs. In general, the prices on the menu are not far from the average of a great restaurant but they need to be more reasonable with the specials. During my last visit I ordered the Sea Bass and Risotto special which was amazing but it was priced at $60. The price was not advised upfront and it was a surprise when we received the check.

Overall, a great dinning experience but given the prices not a restaurant to visit frequently

David Chaymol and his team is excellent. One of the best French Restaurants in PR. His fusion of haut cuisine recipes with local products is sublime. Highly recommended

One of the best meals I have ever had. Other 3 people dining with me thought the same. One of them actually said they were eating slow because she did not want the meal to end it was so good.

Wow, great stuff! Everything was top notch. David, the chef, talked to us and every other table personally and explained everything. Mark, our server, was on top of everything. The food was super in all cases. Highly suggest the mussels as an appetizer.

We plan to return soon.
