Steakhouse

Located on the fourth floor of the Hotel Puerto Valdés, in Puerta de Tierra, it has a view of the San Juan Bay and one of the most complete Argentine wine cellars locally. Its cuisine offers a wide variety of select cuts of meat, poultry and seafood that are roasted using the thousand-year-old concept of Kamado.
But what is Kamado? It is an ancient art of cooking meat that allows its flavors and textures to be unique and of an exquisite flavor for the palate. As our executive chef Kenia Rodriguez describes us “cooking meat in Kamado is an art. Carnes Steakhouse offers a relaxed atmosphere for dinner. On its terrace, the visitor will be able to observe the beautiful bay of San Juan, and when there are cruise ships, the view is much more interesting.
To accompany the meats, the pairing is made with a delicious selection of Argentine wines in a cellar that includes an interesting variety.

    The place is beautiful the ambience is nice. But the chef is rude and terrible in service. We arrived for a table of 2 and requested one extra person to be added. She got into an argument with the waiters about it in front of us. The food itself was ok. As others have mentioned wine glasses where dirty and stained.

    The churasco steak was extremely tasty, as was the Parmesan risotto. However, there were a few items the restaurant was out of: all salads except the Caesar, no gin for cocktails, only one red wine, and aside from a Prosecco, no white or rose wine. And that was only what we were interested in ordering, there may have been more. Also, the music was very loud for the small space.

    Food was delicious! I got the ribeye and the mushroom risotto was off the charts! Bread pudding for dessert a must! The waitstaff accommodated all of our requests and really cared about our experience. This was our last night in Puerto Rico with family and it was a homerun! Do not be fooled when you arrive at the location....we thought we took a wrong turn but once upstairs via elevator we stepped into a quaint atmosphere with a great view! You will not be disappointed.

    A great authentic Argentina steakhouse with great food and service. The wine menu is limited and our waiter spoke very little English but pointed us to the best dishes made in house. The place is small and loud but I did see a private room in the back. Enjoyed the open kitchen and staff was very friendly

    Service took a very long time to get our drinks and food orders. The food itself was great. But the wait time was too long. Other people that came after us were served first. Took more than 2 hours to dine there.

    I usually don’t take the time to review restaurants unless the experience was outstanding and I just say the chef(s) in this kitchen knows flavor. The mushroom risotto was perfectly prepared. The Carbonara had to be the best I ever had. When I visit PR again I will go back to this restaurant.

    We love this place! We went for my husband’s birthday and since we arrive they greet him. The appetizers, food and deserts were delicious. And the piña colada was very good. Even though it was cloudy the view was awesome. We will definitely will be back. The chef came by our table, let us felt at home. Alexis welcome us, was attentive with us, and went far and beyond to explain every the definitely made good our experience at Carnes Steakhouse.

    Sweet bread appetizers were excellent. Chorizo appetizers was very good. Mushroom risotto was excellent. Churrasco was cooked to perfection and excellent. Most of the meat cooked on “Big Green Egg” Grills so the flavor is exquisite. Open kitchen, most is made from scratch so can be a little lengthy.

    What a great small hidden gem. I let my daughter pick out our restaurant on this night, expecting an outdoor Palm tree venue. To quite my surprise this place was quite the opposite. A 7 to 8 table, small indoor place with great atmosphere. The food was absolutely amazing! The portions with the price were a little high. However, we enjoyed.
