Chef Wilo Benet - PR Celebrity Chef. What a great meal full of flavor. Love his Pegao Bites, Gouda Cheese Parisenne with Guava Sauce, Risotto de Gandules and Bistec Encebollado. Great for Special occasions, Family, Friends or Business.

Loved the atmosphere and the view at Pikayo. Unfortunately, I can't say the same for the food. We tried the chef's tasting menu and it left me underwhelmed. While it was fun to try a variety of dishes, none made me say "Wow!". The wait...More

I choose this restaurant while I was at a business trip to Puerto Rico. I strongly recommend the tasting menu they offer. It's a 6-course menu, very tasteful, well presented and the service is impeccable.
