Weird lighting adding to the effect of being 20,000 leagues under the sea...the cheapest Malbec on the pricey owner list was in the top 100 wines I have had amongst thousands, wow has Argentina come a long way in the price/value wars...could easily have just stayed in the apps, and done them all...but the entrees rocked as well...a superb choice,...

We are staying at Acacia, and after a long day of travel, wanted a drink and some food and really didn't want to venture out to find it. Niche is, just as its name says, a tiny little place. The decor is nothing special, but the food and drink were! The front of the house was ably staffed by Donna,... More

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2014

The interior design and dramatic lighting were a little over the top for my taste (and somewhat undermined by the large TV in the dining room), but the food, cocktails and service were no joke. The staff was sharply focused on producing great food and drinks and, boy, did they deliver. The restaurant was not very busy when I visited... More

Flew to Puerto Rico for a few days and had dinner here...the food was amazing; Donna the host was gracious and very nice. I ordered the Mahi Mahi dinner, and it was to die for! Very pleasantly surprised! It's a little pricey...but you get what you pay for! I'll recommend to any of my friends and family!

My husband and I ate here for our first anniversary dinner and had a delicious, romantic, and extra special meal we will never forget! Our hotel staff made the reservation (and recommendation - thank you!) and they told the restaurant that it was our anniversary and mentioned what we like to eat (light, healthy meals with fresh fish and vegetables)....

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
