A very dark place with a gothic atmosphere, which was nice. The food was good, but nothing impressive, and a little expensive for the kind of food served. I was expecting much more from chef Tino, so disappointed...

Don't underestimate this jewel by the exterior. We were received by Chef Tino and from the welcoming until the end it was a great experience! The ambience is very sensual and artistic. Just watching Chef Tino cooking your meal with the passion that he has, and being served by him is like being in a reality show. Don't underestimate the... More

We just had dinner at this restaurant. I have seen the place before but had never felt drawn to try it due to its odd location. It's at Road 2 but not in a pretty area. The dining room is beautifully decorated and the background music very appropriate. I got one of those internet offers and that's why I ended... More

The chef greet us on the way in and went personally to our table with some recommendations. My wife explained what she wanted and he went outside the menu with some recommendations. She was extremely happy with her fish. I had the Ribeye with an in house steak sauce and Yia's rice. It was off the charts. The meat was... More

I bought a online offer and went to the restaurant. It's decoration has a very intimate feel and it is as if Chef Tino's personality is reflected on it. The place is a little pricey for me (like $30 on a plate) but the food has very good quality and amazing taste. The downside of the place is that parking... More

Loved this restaurant. Quiet, dark atmosphere and wonderful service. The staff was almost too good to be true. They actually thanked us for coming to their restaurant right off the bat. I am a vegetarian which can be hard in Puerto Rico. I ordered pasta. Then the chef came over and told me that he could make several other dishes... More

My wife and I ate here under the recommendation of a friend who said chef Tino was one of the best chef's in Puerto Rico. He was supposed to have a cooking show on the food network, like the Puerto Rican Emeril. I have eaten at Emeril's in New Orleans, this is not Emeril's. First, it is loud. It was... More

First of all we will like to thank you for your visit and considerations. Yia's is not your average place, known for our unique style of decor and food. It's not for everyone, and we are very aware of that. We are a family owned restaurant that for almost 8 years now had been serving GREAT food with a GREAT... More
