The worst timing for food delivery I've ever experienced. My main dish arrived 20 minutes after my two friends had already finished their main course, and it was cold!!! The waiter apologized and tried to fix the situation offering me a new dish, but at that point I didn't want to wait anymore to have my dinner. The waiter explained after she brought my main course that the chef sends the dishes when they're done for family sharing style. If that's the case, it needs to be explained before ordering. We ordered three very different main courses with no expectation of sharing as we have different tastes, and no knowledge that was the expectation. I expected a fine dining experience from a chef designed menu, NOT family style dining! Extremely disappointing dinner.

Excellent service and cuisine with both indoor and outdoor dining with a view of the pool and, further out, a view of the beach and ocean. I sat outdoors during both visits. The octopus is very tender! I will return to this restaurant every time I am in San Juan.

Great food and great service, our waiter (Alexis) went above and beyond . The restaurant is beautiful, I recommend you get a table outside facing the pool. Best red snapper I've had, hands down.

My husband and I came for our anniversary dinner and absolutely loved our experience! Sheila was so kind when she greeted us and even brought us a hibiscus champagne to celebrate our anniversary. Alexis was our server and took excellent care of us! They were both so friendly and gave us a list of places they recommend while visiting. Not only was the service incredible, but the food was exquisite! We opted for the 4 course tasting menu with the wine pairing. We had such a wonderful experience and look forward to visiting again soon!

1- the rice with seafood had a funny taste and you can feel the crab shell in it
2- they have the most expensive snapper of Puerto Rico $65 and the smaller too, no side included.
3- no desserts on the menu
4- expensive cocktails $17 and small too
5- the mamposteado rice with longaniza had two small pieces of sausage.

Save your time go somewhere else

Very good! We did the 6 course experience on the patio, we received glasses of champagne upon our arrival. We sat on the patio the view was great and the Dj played great music. We enjoyed ourselves so much we actually switched to the Fairmont hotel the next day.

The food was good! The patio area can be a little noisy and entertained been next to the pool but inside it pretty quiet.
When we arrived the service was excellent but as soon the place got busier our waiter stop coming to our table.
We ordered one piece of chocolate cake... 20 minutes later and nothing. So we canceled the order and asked for the check. He apologized for it.

The fix Menu was kind of disappointed, based on beef and an option of chicken sausage that should never be included in that menu. Was something you will serve for breakfast. My husband doesn’t eat meat they did offer to cooked a fish for him which we really appreciate it, he said it was extremely salty. Our server Alex was outstanding. The food wasn’t a memorable experience, sorry.
