VERY small restaurant east of the main San Juan scene. Reservations highly suggested. Takes about 2 hours and $100 per person by the time you're done, but it's worth it. Fantastic cocktails and main courses. The chef knows what he's doing.

One... I could not have two desserts!! Two... that we didn't meet the chef to tell him that dinner at Niche was all that a dining experience could offer!! Upon entering the hotel lobby you feel like your going into a rabbit hole and your leaving reality!! We then opened the arched entrance door to Niche we were so wonderfully... More

Went as a party of 5. Reservations are recommended. Intimate, welcoming, great food and service. The food was top notch with a focus on flavor and presentation. All five dinner party members were impressed. You can tell the kitchen staff puts a lot of effort and thought into the food. You can't go wrong here. Totally worth it.

Went to celebrate my bday and it was delicious. I had the tasting menu and every single dish was impressive. Contrasting flavors, good ingredients and great technique. Returned for the Sunday brunch and it was a disappointment. I was evident the owner and chef was not around. So I recommend this place for dinner but not for brunch.

Everything about this place is fantastic. The food, the quirky atmosphere. It was the best meal of our recent trip by far.

Had New Year's Day brunch at Niche as we were staying in the Acacia Hotel. The service was excellent - they were attentive and patient as they waited for the rest of our party to arrive. Coffee was well prepared. The meat lover's omelette was delicious, not too heavy and well seasoned. The oatmeal was obviously home made and also... More

This was definitely the finest of the many restaurants we sampled during our vacation. David is a Charming host and an amazing chef and the tasting menu did not disappoint. There is a wonderful and somewhat more reasonable wine list as well. Do yourself a huge favor and visit this Bistro and be wowed!!

For a place that boasts itself as one of the best restaurants in Puerto Rico it was a horrible and rude experience. We made a reservation for Niche when we arrived in Puerto Rico. There was a fixed NYE menu and it was not cheap...$185 per person not including tax or tip. Ok NYE is a special night so why... More
