    The food was amazing. The risotto was out of this world. Got to meet the chef, and he provided excellent commentary on the dishes. Just a wonderful night out. Try the croquettas made with Gouda. So good!

    We actually didn’t stay for dinner because the server told us there were numerous items that were not available on a very limited menu to begin with. Also there was only one other table of people dining in the whole restaurant at 7:00. Tha ambience was very pretty but a shame we had to go elsewhere for dinner.

    It was our first visit and it was awesome. The place is beautiful. The drinks, food and service were excellent. They have a good variety of wines in the cellar. Eventhough there were few items not available in the menu, they had some good options available out of the menu. We got the pork belly “montaditos” with the ripe plantain chutney. My husband had the rib eye with sweet potatoes, asparragus and mushrooms; I had the salmon with vegetables in an asian-like sauce. For dessert we had their deconstructed carrot cake. Loved the mix of flavors in the food. Will definitely return!!

    Our hotel recommended this restaurant. The menu was limited. We sat down, the restaurant looked lovely. The waiter came Over immediately and my husband ordered a glass of wine. When we gave our order, the waiter informed us that there was no fish. Well, my husband hasn't eaten meat in 30+ years so we were forced to leave and find somewhere else to eat. Quite honestly, we should not have been charged for the half-glass of wine consumed.

    We ended up at Almaviva when our rooftop reservation at another popular local spot was cancelled due to rain. It was really quiet for a Saturday night but we enjoyed that SO much as we are traveling with our two little ones and really enjoyed the calm atmosphere. It's very modern and pretty inside, looked like there was a special cigar/wine tasting room that you may be able to arrange which is so cool. We had the "Tabla" appetizer of cheeses and meats and that was delicious. My husband ordered a scallop fish and I had the filet mignon and they were both perfection. Our server Juan was so sweet and very attentive, the entire experience was very high end and professional. 10/10 would eat here again on our next visit to PR!

    What a gem in Condado! The owner Chris has balanced an incredible menu with a wonderful ambiance. Let’s start with the emotional response as you enter what is in effect an art gallery! The abstract paintings from Noel Ruiz are stunning. The personally owned piece that we ate aside from kept the conversation brisk and the imagination wandering. The Tabla was a spread of incredible cheeses, with the truffle cheese our favorite. The nutty earthy aromas jumped off the cheese onto your palate. The halibut entree was probably the best piece of halibut I have ever eaten. I have been around the world so this was big. The rest of the family had a burst of conformity and all had the filets. One rare, one medium and one…forgive her…well. Each expertly prepared and delicious. The well done one was moist and tender as well…something that takes skill as many know. The custom concoctions were out of this world. My fav was the one made with Crème de Violet called Purple Rain. Wow I don’t drink cocktails like this often but it made me ask myself why? There was no room for desert unfortunately but I was so close to cranking a piece of the Carrot Cake and my 22 yr old lamented not getting the Cookie thing all night. They had 2 huge parties going on along with a bunch of other tables but they balanced it all properly and pleased us with the right types of interactions and discussions as we waited for the food. And it was worth the wait. Come hungry and come curious and you will have a wonderful time at this wonderful restaurant Almaviva!! Our compliments to the chefs and staff as they had a tough job and nailed it!!

    Our server was outstanding. Prices were high but food was very good. I felt it strange that I had to go into wine room to pick wine as there was not a list??????? Last time this happened the place was closing and just not reordering wine. We also were the only people there but.... it was only 6pm

    Almaviva is a vibe. The live musicians The Gypsies had beautiful singing voices and sang classic songs in Español and English in a soulful way. Our meal was fantastic! We had the fried fish and the scallops and the beef empanada as an appetizer. The fried fish was well seasoned and easy to break apart from the bones. We left our cocktail choices in the hands of th3 super friendly and talented bar tender who made custom drinks for us that tasted just as amazing as our presentation. The second round was where he decided to show off and make the drinks glow with light! Our waiter Victor was so pleasant and happy to explain the different dishes. Loved the art work and decor!

    The food was the best food that we had here in PR so far. Service was good too until the end. Never got the espresso we ordered with dessert but not an issue as we were very full. And after the delicious and flavorful entrees and appetizers dessert was surprisingly bland. Over all a great experience.

    Great experience started before we even arrived. I texted reservation line asking about keto diet accommodations and they were very receptive. Yan?, their host, took care of letting chef know. At dinner, service was tremendous by Roxanne as she gave recommendations and prompt attentive care. Food and drinks, purple rain and LA PASION DEL CONDE THE CONDE'S PASSION were top shelf. Apps, CROQUETA DE QUESO BRIE & JALEA DE SOFRITO for family were good and dinners were so good. We had a perfectly cooked filet mignon on potatoes, churrasco on sweet plantains and my special keto dish of ribeye on smoked/grilled zucchini and yellow squash with Brussels spouts. Chef even made me a green pepper and cream sauce. All steaks were perfectly cooked with beautiful plating too. Just a super dinner and highly recommend this restaurant. Interior has very elegant lighting with very inviting sound proofing and music set just right. Thanks!!
