    Best meal in Puerto Rico! Every dish was totally new, creative, and delicious. The combination of flavors had us spooning up every last drop of sauce. Drinks were also excellent. Don’t miss dessert! Service was attentive and quick. Before we left we were ready to book again for tomorrow night to savor our new favorites and the dishes we couldn’t try in one visit! #MichelinStar

    We love coming back to this place. Tucked on Calle Del Parque, is always consistent on the high quality of their Japanese Peruvian fare. A superb, different, delectable experience. Very good wine list. Service outstanding.

    Cenamos aquí el 14 de febrero, un día que presenta sus retos, tanto para el restaurante como para los comensales… ¡y fue excepcional!! El servicio muy atento, eficiente y amable, y la comida un descubrimiento. Sobre el ambiente y el nivel de ruido, son dos aspectos que me hubiese gustado no incluir en mi opinión, pero el app no me lo permitió. Estábamos en la terraza. El nivel de ruido provenía de los bocinazos de la calle por el tapón, algo que el restaurante no tenía control. Sobre el ambiente de adentro del restaurante, no tenemos criterios para opinar. En resumen, cinco estrellas ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Another fantastic meal at SUR Barra Nikkei. This was my second visit (and my second visit to San Juan), and I can’t wait to return. If you’re feeling indecisive or just want to try something new, ask your server to put together a selection for you. They’ll ask you about food allergies and preferences and about how hungry you are and then bring you something interesting and tasty.

    Great flavors and textures, the staff is super friendly and knowledgeable. We asked for recommendations and everything was spot on. I ordered one of their mezcal based cocktails, Espíritu Libre—absolutely delicious. The Róbalo in one of the mains was to die for, flaky, buttery and smoked to perfection. Would recommend and come back for seconds (and thirds).

    One of the best meals I've had anywhere, ever. The flavors created by this chef are as delicious as they are innovative. The service very knowledgable, but also warm and welcoming. We let them choose our menu, though with a few loose parameters. Our party included diners with some restrictions and preferences. They not only accommodated, but delivered on a sensational meal. Before we left the restaurant we made reservations for friends passing through San Juan the following week. If you only have one fine-dining evening in San Juan, dine here. If it's your first time let them build your menu.

    This is one of the best places in Santurce. Top quality food and prices are not crazy like in Condado in the tourist traps. It's a high end restaurant, but the value for money is good. I highly recommend it.

    A spectacular newcomer to San Juan’s exploding foodie scene, Sur is a refreshing antidote to ubiquitous renderings of comida criolla. Nonetheless, this thoughtful take on Nikkei Cuisine with super fresh local ingredients (snook ceviche, sea bass crudo,etc.) resonates with and reflects its Santurce surroundings - this place may be a player with Beard nomination in hand, but it has a neighborhood feel and a distinctly Puerto Rican amablé vibe that makes you want to stay every time you visit.
