Great Place Mahi Mahi and Risotto was awesome!

Highly recommend this restaurant at the kiosks. Loved the risotto and Mahi Mahi. Excellent appetizers. Great atmosphere, prompt service (which was rare in the PR). Best food experience our 4 nights in PR.

This was out last stop before heading for the airport, the food was authentic and tasted fresh. According to the some reviews we read previously, the place was on the pricey side but I didn't think it was overprice. Order the cheese and guava sauce appetizer, you won't regret it. Their juices are fresh and the crab cakes are worth... More

Though not on the menu, the chef kindly cooked up the best mofongo on the island!! Truly fabulous!! My wife and daughter enjoyed a wonderful pizza. The owner was kind and generous and visited with all the patrons!! This was a meal I will never forget - will definitely return next time I'm in Puerto Rico

The first time we were there was absolutely good, table for two, good food and perfect service! On our second visit, the waitress were rude, this time my table was for 5. The food was pricy for the portion.We had to ask for drinks and the waitress was more attentive to other tables so we had to call her several... More

We came upon this restaurant because the live music was so inviting and the place was packed! The staff was so nice and attentive. The food was delicious. I had the salmon and my family had burgers. We will definitely return.

The food is always spectacular. The owner/chef Paul uses the freshest ingredients; and; he brings a unique twist to many traditional native dishes. The atmosphere is fun: salsa music, a great bar and people-watching. Co-owner/ hostess Jolie always makes sure you have the best dining experience And her smile is infectious. Additionally, the restaurant features 2 feline co-hostesses, Michu-Michu and... More

You will want to make this restaurant a 'must do' when visiting Puerto Rico. It is just a 40 minute drive from San Juan and well worth the trip. The food is great, all fresh ingredients, home made and secret recipes. Try the crab cakes. The decor is upscale, spotlessly clean ..... a nice change from the surrounding bar scene.... More

This was out first meal in Puerto Rico, and the staff at Ay Bonito! helped us settle in and feel at home. Our hostess was very personable, and took time to explain the menu, adjust the music level, and help us in off the patio when a light rain started. The Mahi- Mahi was really tastey, as were the mufongos... More

We enjoyed the crab cakes, shrimp kabobs, and Mahi-Mahi. We thought they opened at noon, but discovered the day we were there they did not open until 5. We walked up and down the kiosks and by then they were open. Enjoyed the food. It was more expensive than the places we usually try, but we wanted fish and enjoyed... More

Ay Bonito continues to be the best restaurant in the Kioskos and clearly up there on the island. Yoly and Paul continue to put out great food and really take care of their customers. I have been on the no-carb Atkins diet recently (it works) and I explained this to Yoly who is a fixture at the front of the... More
