We ordered the salmon platter and goat cheese - basil omelette; both were delicious! Niche is small and intimate, but the atmosphere is really nice and eclectic. We went there at the suggestion of our Lonely Planet travel guide. Overall, very good!

My husband and I stayed at the Acacia Boutique Hotel after a week-long cruise. We decided to try NICHE for dinner, which was inside the hotel. Our server, Donna, was very friendly. Although they were out of the wine we chose, the wine we received instead was also great. Our food was cooked to perfection and expertly seasoned. It was... More

We were staying at the hotel and decided to try the restaurant. Dinner was absolutely delicious. Staff had fun personalities, made the experience that much more enjoyable. The coffee was really good, don't even bother with Starbucks.

We started off with a problem with the valet being full but they quickly recovered. It was a Monday so it was slow. Drinks and apps came in a reasonable amount of time and were very good. The entrees were very slow but ended up being worth the wait. (to clarify, this was a business dinner . The timing would... More

We were staying in the hotel and ended up eating there twice. Appitizers we ate: 1. The shrimp and portabella Cazulita- sauce was amazing. 2. Tuna Sashami – yum! 3. Roman Squids- just breaded calamari, but good. 4. Shrimp Ceviche- more like a shrimp cocktail with cooked shrimp. Entrees: 1. Pan Seared Halibut- OMG to die for!!! 2. Grilled Mahi-... More

My wife and I were staying at the Acacia Boutique hotel and decided to treat ourselves to some traditional Caribbean Cuisine at the Niche Restaurant. This restaurant has a very romantic atmosphere with relaxing background music provided. We were served by Ian who was very attentive to our requirements and diligently explained what the dishes, that sounded very unfamiliar to... More

I came into the restaurant after it was suggested by the concierge at the sister hotel. Service was quick and the breakfast was amazing; the hand made strawberry juice renewed my obsession with the fruit!

On Friday, February 7, 2014 my wife and I were debating wether to visit Santaella or Papillon, two restaurants we frequently visit in San Juan, but decided to visit Niche for the first time to celebrate a special occasion. When we arrived we wanted to order a bottle of wine, but our waiter Dana told us that the bottle we... More

We are locals. Although we usually dine at very fine restaurants in our island, we never heard before of NICHE, a fine dining restaurant in the Condado area. We were looking for a place for a special night, which almost remained perfect, until DANA the hostile waitress of the restaurant, chased us to the valet parking questioning our tip. She... More

Sooo glad we found this restaurant. The food was amazing. I had the lobster salad, followed by the bass, my husband had the ceviche which was huge, followed by the stuffed chop. We couldn't put our forks down. The service was equally amazing. Small restaurant, maybe 8 tables. Truly a gem!! HIGHLY recommend
