We went to the Father's Day Bruch at Augustos Restaurant this year and enjoyed the idea of the Buffet Table with appetizers that include fresh oysters, shrimp cocktail and warm spanish tortilla followed by the main dish and the great desserts. We all chose either the chocolate souflle or the apple charlotte.

Augusto's is one of those places that every time you go you are sure to have an amazing culinary experience. Chef Ariel has elevated an already great restaurant, keeping some of Chef Augusto classic dishes but giving them a more modern twist. Great ambiance and superb service.

This place is expensive. But very good. They take great care of you. Attached to a Courtyard which is very odd when using the washroom and being confronted with bright fluorescent lighting from the more subtle restaurant lights. Food is top notch.

Chef Ariel Rodriguez is one of the best chefs in Puerto Rico. As a regular customer, I generally ask the kitchen to serve whatever they feel like serving on any given day, and they have never failed to impress. Their cellar has top tier as well as great value selections.

I visited Augusto's on November 12, 2014, a Wednesday, on my first night in the city. Not impressed at all. Granted I ate at some fabulous places later in the week, but even without comparison to those, I was disappointed by Augusto's. I love good food and travel for it. And I especially like French food, with Foie Gras being... More
