I would highly recommend eating at Ariel. The chef is one of, if not the, best on the Island. The food is spectacular and the restaurant was recently renovated and the space is very nice. Its the perfect place for a meal away from the main strip in San Juan.

This restaurant was recently remodeled, and the staff was changed as well. Sometimes changes like this have serious repercussions and this is not the exception. This restaurant used to be one of the best fine dinning experiences in the island know, I am sadly to inform that the dining experience was good but not fine dining. The service was a... More

Had lunch with friends on Friday. We had the three course lunch menu which was simply spectacular. Great wine pairing with our food. If in the area make sure you don't miss Ariel"s cuisine for sure you will be back!!

It had been a long time since I visited Augusto and now again it was an amazing surprise: Very adequate pricing for fine dinning and excellent food and service.

We took a taxi here from our Hyatt Place hotel. It was my son's first time at fine dining, $78 for 3 course prefixe. The bartender came to us and customized our cocktails. He made me a great variation on a mojito with tomato and basil. They served a complimentary amuse bouche. I had the Grill Octopus tomato fondue, fennel... More

We checked in the Courtyard late. We arrived at Augusto's 5 minutes after the kitchen closed. However, we were told the chef would keep the kitchen open. We sat in the bar area at a small table for 2. I have to say, for staying open later for us they really made us feel special. They brought us small appetizers... More

Spectacular hotel restaurant with amazing service and nice atmosphere. Two people at our table agreed it was the best scallops they had ever had. Chef gave us a few small bite surprises before our food came out as well. Nice touch. Just go and enjoy! And thanks to the management for letting us in a bit under dressed.
