The menu is great, varied, tasteful -not over complicated- from cocktails to dessert everything was perfect. We ate there several times while in the area, it couldn't have been better! The chef, Christian is wonderful and creative, yet keeping the tastes true.
Chad and partners have created a incredible warm and friendly atmosphere in a very sheik setting. Thank you

Thanks to TripAdvisor for this terrific find. The service (Angelo) was attentive, discreet, and very helpful. The food was imaginative, flavorful, well presented. We had the duck tacos, which fuse Latin and Eastern flavors; light crisp tacos and tender, well-seasoned duck confit. The seviche (mahi on the night we visted) was light, bright, and very fresh. Baby spinach garnish was a lovely accompaniment. We shared the pork chop, well cooked in a very flavorful mushroom reduction. It is advertised as "Caribbean" cuisine, which seems a bit of a stretch. It's a fusion restaurant. Overall a spectacular meal, and the best I've had yet on the island. The hotel housing the restaurant (Acacia Boutique) looks really cool too. I will stay there the next time I come to Puerto Rico.

This was a great find. Very small which made the experience of eating there even better. The food was excellent and well prepared and presented. We had martinis made with a new gin for the restaurant call G-vine, a French gin. The owner recommended it and it was a great gin.
In addition to the wonderful food and drink, the bartender, Lester, and our waiter, Ian, helped to make our dining experience special. They were efficient, very helpful, and friendly
