Every time I visit Puerto Rico Pikayo is on the top of my dining list!! This year ago it was amazing. The service & the food is so consistent we actually went a few times. The New York strip is great but my all time favorite if you visit this place is the chocolate soufflé!! You will not be disappointed... More

I recently held a group dinner for 20 in a Private Ocean view room here. The restaurant suggested a 3 option meal plan and at first I did not understand why. Actually they are offering things that they know are killer. The appetizers, the salads, the dessert and the main courses were off the charts great. The suggested house wines... More

Cheese Parisienne, Carpaccio, Foie Gras, Swordfish, Cheese Souffle, Besserat de Bellefon Cuvée des Moines Champagne Brut, The Macallen, elegant presentations, stuffed to the gills, large tab!

Made reservations and were seated immediately upon arrival. Decor is high end. My wife is vegan and doesn't do gluten. The staff went out of their way to make special dishes just for her! They brought some bread with homemade butter with honey and white sesame. They realized that wouldn't work for her so they brought out a white bean... More

We visited Pikayo on Valentines Day. We were disappointed not to be sat in the main restaurant but in an overspill room at the side of the main restaurant and we had to site on plastic chairs. Not quite what we expected. The food was amazing and the service good, I'm sure if we had visited another evening it would... More

A nice atmosphere in the Hilton Hotel. Take the elevator or escalator to the M level for the restaurant. Excellent service and very good food. Higher prices but a good dining experience. We had shared appetizers and main courses plus desert. All good.
