I visited Orujo with friends for the first time after hearing good ratings about it. It was worth it, the food outstanding, the service superb and the wine selection excellent. I was impressed with the excellent wine selection because it offers Spain regions out of the traditional Ribera del Duero and Rioja. The chef visited us a couple of times... More

Orujo is a gastronomic voyage through the wonders of the palate. We have been here many times and it is always a new flavor experience. We do not know "whats on the menu" as the house specialty is their tasting menu where the amazing Chef Portella creates a 6 course dinner. You will not be dissapointed. The tasting menus can...

Worst experience ever!!! The service was awful, the food was ok. We arrive at 8:00pm and left at 11:20pm. You can imagine how bad was the waiting. The waitresses come and go without offering more water or wine. It was really bad!!!

Orujo, Taller de Gastronomía highly values quality and freshness and places it at the highest level of the totem pole; hence, the reason for possible slight delays in the cooking and the serving of orders. Clients in the same table that are ordering a tasting menu (consisting of... More

Had the pleasure of visiting Orujo for a birthday dinner. Loved it! Great service and locations, and the food... SUPERB. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars was the minimal amount of vegetarian options. Side, vegetarian dishes were great, and I did not feel my meal lacked anything when compared to my companions´, but a few vegetarian... More

What a wonderful dinning experience! The food was fresh, flavorful and service was outstanding. We travel to PR every year and have sampled Mofongo in many places but Orujo's is the best hands down! The arroz frito was wonderful as well as the skirt steak. Can't wait to go back.

It's always a great culinary experience, they never have disappointed me! I always go for the tasting and the last four times (in a period of 11 months) I have visited them they never have repeated the same dish. Just Great.

I have come here many times with friends and family, and I am always blown away by the dishes and wine at this place. It is a true gem of Caguas. The environment is family friendly but also romantic with its various artwork and local vibe.

We visited this place and we were in love! The food is simply spectacular, the service is what you expect in a restaurant of this price range. Expensive but that what you pay for! Highly recommended.

We love to go there for any occasion, or for none at all, besides having good food!!! The chef owner has a great commitment with quality. He uses local products when available, and prides himself on that. This is a slow-food-movement type of place, go there with all the time needed to enjoy the experience. You can even see your...
