Wilo Bennet is making his best at Pikayo! This is the Guavate at San Juan for the best Roasted Pork you will ever have.

Pikayo has amazing decor and great service. There are few places that make you turn back and say the good was not as good as i'd like but I'd go back for the service. In general, I found that PR food was overly salty, unfortunately I did not realize that until it was too late. Pikayo is not exception to... More

It's truly a shame that most of the food you've had in Puerto Rico just ended up being unsuitable for your palate. However, I still appreciate your compliments on the dishes that you did enjoy. Take care, Chef Wilo, Owner More

This restaurant is very overrated. My husband and I often frequent fine dining establishments, and did so in San Juan. The first thing I noticed was a horribly wrinkled table cloth. We should have left at that point. Then I ordered a signature cocktail which had muddled raspberries. The young man who delivered it announced that since there were no... More

I enjoyed it but was not overwhelmed. I'm from Chicago and not as good as restaurants there. (Or as Marmalade in Old San Juan). Sword fish was excellent, Alcapurrias and chocolate souffle just ok.

There is not enough space or words to describe this amazing elegant restaurant!! My son and I reserved a table for his 25th birthday. I rarely encounter a staff that are as knowledgeable, articulate, efficient and make you feel so comfortable and welcome.

This was so highly rated on trip advisor, that we had to try it. It was good and very classic, and the staff was amazing. I just wouldn't recommend it if you're looking for something cutting-edge. Food was delicious; the sea bass on coconut polenta was amazing.

When service and kitchen are in perfect harmony, some incredible results are produced, and I'm happy to hear you felt that way during your visit here. I have no qualms with providing a classic experience, as long as it's excellent, so hopefully we'll have the pleasure of another visit from you someday. All the very best, Chef Wilo, Owner More
