The ambiance was special. The food was out of words! The chef takes care of your table. Very romantic and exquisite. This place has little space so call ahead to make reservations.

Niche is by far the best french bistro restaurant in Puerto Rico. The restaurant is located inside the boutique Acacia Hotel in ocean park. Niche is small and intimate but the food is plentiful and to die for. Picture stone walls, hand carved tables and comfortable seating. Chef David Chaymol takes a lot of pride in not only his food...

EVERYTHING about this restaurant was perfect! From David (such a delight), to the fantastic French food, to the ambiance from the live, soft guitar music!!! We so enjoyed every minute of our evening!!

Niche is always a favorite on our annual trips to San Juan. The ambiance is out of this world and we never fail to meet travelers from around the globe in this quaint, romantic, culinary setting; however, our recent trip was the best as we met the new French chef David Chaymol who delighted us with his strong French accent...

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 of the area/culture/people,... More
