We were staying about 50 feet from the restaurant and stopped by on just convenience. Wow, what a pleasant surprise. Best meal in San Juan in 10 days. Cooked perfectly meat and seafood. Higly recommend. No regrets.

Chef David Chaymol greeted us and took us to our table(Reservations recommended since seating is tight). We went ahead with Chef Chaymol's recommendation on the degustation and was the... More

A simply faultless meal - not heavy and not 'flashy' but the red wine sauce on the beautifully rare and succulent Filet Mignon was simple, classic and perfect. Excellent light and flavoured crab cakes with and lovely individual( I have forgotten the description) sauce was very good too. There were local dishes mainly seafood also available but the Chef David... More

Went there for anniversary dinner. We had the tasting menu and it was full of black truffles! The service is so personal that it's like a large Chefs table with David by your side. Like I said Unique!
