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

The family went to kayak at the bioluminescent bay. I had a bit of a head cold, so I stayed back home. Right next-door to our condo was a lovely looking restaurant called Niche, so I went there for a solo dinner. The lovely woman behind the bar, Donna, so I could sit anywhere, so I chose a place away... More

Reservations required ! Located in a boutique hotel the restaurant has 6-7 tables. Service and food are superior. They know how to cook risotto. Lamb and pork dishes were also prepared nicely. Mojitos are first class. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that I'm not inclined to spend $150 + for dinner and a drink. I don't... More

We would have missed this spot had it not have been house in the Acacia Hotel where we were staying. Having saved this for our farewell dinner we were not disappointed. Niche has a very intimate feel to it yet not crowded. The staff is both knowledgeable and friendly. Daily specials were creative as we watched the menu change on... More

We stayed at a nearby hotel but stopped at the Niche for breakfast. Roberto was our waiter and he was friendly, knowledgeable about the city and as helpful and professional as anyone could be. . We found the store he directed us to and bought two pounds of local coffee based on his advice. The restaurant was nice and the... More

Niche has deteriorated greatly since last time I went, they obviously have changed chefs and the new one is not good, the food also has worsened since all ingredients are frozen not fresh even the meat. Service is ok.
