This is a small restaurant in the El San Juan Hotel. It has a wonderful menu and the food is excellent. Worth a visit.

We went on a friday night, arrived just in time for our reservation and they sited us immediately. They have one of the best services that you could find in any restaurant in San Juan. The food was very good but not great considering what you pay. homemade pasta is a plus.

Very busy evening with a large private party going on. Staff did a wonderful job of muting by moving us and in addition to soft music compensated with excellent service. A grouper proven ale and veal scallopini with porcini mushrooms were nicely prepared preceded by an arugula salad with marinated tomatoes and dried prosciutto. The evening came together with a...

The service, food, ambience and everything about the experience was enjoyable. We were nervous based on previous reviews but took a chance when we met Luis in the lobby by chance. He invited us to try it out and everything about the experience was enjoyable. The service,food, and conversation with the staff made the experience great. Jose, Luis, and the... More

Dinner started off with some warm bread with different flavored butters. The cheese and prosciutto appetizer was delicious, I had never tasted a cheese that melts in your mouth like that. I ordered the veal which was tender and perfectly cooked just not seasoned well enough. The pasta sauce could also use a tune-up because it could have tasted better.... More

We went to this fine dining establishment on a recommendation, and unfortunately we were underwhelmed. The service was snooty, and the food was average, with above average prices. We don't mind paying higher prices, if the food and service warrant it, but this didn't meet our expectations unfortunately. Lots of other places in this area to try.

Seems like the place lost a little charm when it remodeled a few years back. Service and menu are still very good but it's not as good as it once was.

I went to this restaurant to have a birthday dinner with my friends. From the moment we arrived the service was excellent. Our waiters were so attentive and amicable. Our main waiter gave one of the best services I've ever experienced in my life. (I hope he reads this, FRANCISCO: YOU ROCK!) great sense of humor, great knowledge of the... More

My wife and I dined there again this week with friends and it was as outstanding as ever. The service, as usual, was impeccable. The food incredible. The experience memorable. Very expensive, but well worth it. You really do get what you pay for.
