Delicious French food in San Juan, excellent chef

I wasn't intending on eating here, thought I would come for a drink. When I arrived, Chef David greeted me and I very much enjoyed chatting with him -- in French! He is a French native who relocated to San Juan 15 years ago to offer (more) French food to the island. He is very sweet, knowledgeable... read more

I was truly suprised by this quaint restaurant, once inside you feel like you are in Paris. Inside a boutique hotel, once you enter the atmosphere makes you feel you have stared a pleasant journey. Chef David Chaymol and all the staff make you feel like you are an old friend. The only problem you will have is deciding what... More

Decor: Located inside a small boutique hotel in Condado, the entrance prepares you for something different. A large Buddha at the restaurant's entrance gives way to a very small but "chic" surrounding. Walls of heavy granite, tables and bar of puerto rican hardwoods, a granite floor over a water cistern with invitingly discrete shine through lights. Free form flowing tables.... More

Attentive staff, hip decor, energy efficient AND the best meals I have had outside of Paris. I was lucky to be at the restaurant midweek so I had a lot of attention from the chef and wait staff. Dinner was not cheap but it was worth every penny.

I came here for a business meeting with my company. I had no idea this place even existed. It is a hidden treasure. It is a great place to have a meeting cause it is a great atmosphere, beautiful design & doesn't get loud so we were all able to carry on conversations even though there were others in the... More
