About Permanently Closed - Yantar

This restaurant is permanently closed. Awesome place right in the Condado Tourist Area adjacent to the beautiful Condado Lagoon, has a very nice dining area but also a large bar next to windows that offer great views of the lagoon and the city at night. We offer a variety of tapas at the bar. It is a great place to go with friends to have a drink and also have a wonderful dinner.

 (Atlanta)·Dined on March 8, 2017

Was an excellent experience. Very romantic and the staff was very pleasant. Love the food. The appetizers size was excellent enough for share. The only and minimum concern was with the dessert. We order some chocolate cake that comes with vanilla ice cream. When the dessert arrive the chocolate cake was a very tiny and not very fresh at all, and the ice cream was change for some sorbet. Because all the night was delightful, we do not say anything. That was just a little thing. Little bit expensive but again the experience was great.

I went on Christmas Eve. The food was good but it was served on the colder side. One of the appetizer got lost and delivered almost 40 minutes late. However, we complained and they gave us 2 glasses of Chardonnay on the house. It was fair, yet a bit disappointing for the price. Will think twice before going back.

My husband and I dined at Yantar on our last night of vacation in Condado. We had dined at Yantar a few years before and looked forward to being able to do so again. The service from the moment we walked in was exceptional. Everyone is very friendly and nice. We were fortunate to be seated next to the window facing the lagoon, it was beautiful. Our main server was Carlos and he was extremely kind and promptly took care of our needs. The food was excellent and prepared perfectly. My husband had the homemade chocolate ice cream for dessert and he said it was the best dessert he had all week. That is a huge compliment as he enjoyed the food everywhere that we ate. We visit Condado a few times a year and we will be sure to come back to Yantar on our next trip.

I come to the restaurant every time we want to celebrate, feel special or crave fresh fish served in a cool ambiance. Excellent service. Delicious appetizers (octopus, tartare and croquettes). My prawns were delicious; my husband's fish was delicately cooked and our friends meat was of very high quality and he enjoyed it thoroughly. Good wine list. All our desserts were pretty spectacular too!

Usually if you can get a last minute Saturday night reservation, it's in a place you wouldn't want to eat. So it was a pleasant surprise when my wife and I dined at Yantar 6 hours after arriving in San Juan. The venue was sophisticated and attractive. Our meals were excellent and the service outstanding. While it gradually filled up, the restaurant remained pleasantly subdued. We even had the pleasure of meeting the executive chef, who stopped by our table to introduce herself. All in all, it was an excellent dining experience, one we hope to repeat on our next visit to San Juan.

We went on Super Bowl Sunday, so the place (as most fine dining establishments) were empty. There were two other parties when we arrived and we were the only ones there when we left. As a result, I can't comment on the ambiance other to say that it is a beautiful setting and when full is likely a lively and inviting atmosphere.

Service was great - considering we were the only customers; but food was served rapidly - not my preference.

Food was notable, good to very good, but again a bit rushed.

I would definately go back and would like to experience it in all of its glory. It seems like it would attract more of a business dinner clientele, we were vacationers. None the less, a very viable option for more upscale dining in the Condado area.

We just got off a Windstar cruise and this food blew them out of the water. We did the tasting menu and every single item was so delicious and creative. The executive chef came out and introduced herself. The maitre treated us to after dinner drinks. We live in NJ and our flight got canceled so having this was our last meal in PR so it made it so special.

My wife and I dined at Yantar on January 6, 2016. We found the experience less than desirable. There was no menu posted online for this restaurant, allegedly because it changes so often. The food we ordered, recommended by the waiter, was oversalted. The desert was quite good However, our main complaint was the service. The serving staff liked to stand over in a corner and laugh and cut up. It ruined the atmosphere of the place. Further, the service was slow, as if we were being ignored. In fact, we waited for the check for a good while and finally had to ask for it. This place is way overpriced for what you get. We had great experiences at Oceano and Lemongrass. However, Yantar is not on our recommended list of high quality restaurants.

The table service was poor. We had to call a waiter over for the menu, the bread, to take our order, to ask why it was taking more the 50 minutes to prepare and deliver the entree and final for the check.
The grilled vegetables were over cooked and saturated in oil.
A very disappointing experience in a supposedly fine restaurant.

Chose this restaurant as it was in the top 5 on tripadvisor. Expected a good view based on some reviews, but in reality it was on the second floor at the back of a building, view was of the dumpster and carpark on the first floor, and beyond that, residential buildings across a "canal". Food was expensive, but quality was not bad. The salmon was good. Mango gazpacho was pretty but tasted so-so. Overall, I would say it was not value-for-money, you can do better at other restaurants nearby.

Upon arriving I was impressed that the place had valet. When we advised the valet we were there gorgeous the restaurant he advised my husband "You can get out now." At first I assumed it was the limited English language but I realize I may have been wrong. The location and scenery truly breathtaking. Once we were seated I reviewed the menu send looking for a sweet wine I found a moscato d'asti that was $49 a bottle. Which I oredered for myself and 2 others with my party. The waiter then went to the manager who then came to our table. The manager then advised that there was no more. At this point, I just shook my head knowing that was not familiar with any of the other wines and that it may take a moment for 3 people to agree again. My friend told the manager that I was saddened by his news. He then turned and looked at me and stated " We are done with this. It is dinner not dessert. You will have a dinner wine that is it". I was surprised and was not looking for someone to chastise my drink of choice at dinner. It seemed to also be a problem when we (a party of 6) asked for 2 tickets. I would have expected better service from a place of this caliber. I do not recommend it for tourists looking for customer sevice.

When they found out we just got married they brought a dessert out after dinner that said Just Married and the chef came out herself to congratulate us! We would definitely come back---the best meal we had during our stay.
