Fabulous Puerto Rican food! We went with friends of ours that are local and we sampled just a little of everything- fish tacos, gnocchi, seared tuna, calamari, skirt steak, EVERYTHING was good. Oh and all the juices are fresh squeezed. Great mojitos, yummy grapefruit juice. Very comfortable atmosphere, rustic but classy. Great service. Will go back!

This is a fantastic restaurant. We ate here on our first night in Puerto Rico. The food was fantastic and the staff really friendly and helpful. Great atmosphere. Definitely recommend.

Jaquita Baya is a layed back, fun dining experience in the Miramar area of San Juan. It is close to Condado and Old San Juan, but avoids much of the traffic seen in this area of a weekend.

I visited the restaurant with three friends on a Saturday evening after finding out there was a two-to-three hour wait at other popular restaurants. We were seated immediately. Might this be one of the best-kept secrets in San Juan? The food was is excellent, and prepared against a menu that reflects fresh produce for the day. It is obvious the chef takes pride in his work.

Be sure to have the fish tacos as a starter....one of the best items on the menu. The fish and steak are also delicious and well prepared.

Highly recommended!

Classic PR cuisine but with a creative twist. We came in a group of 9. All the appetizers I tried and the main dishes were superb. Try the fish tacos, meat dumplings, or shrimp tostones. I'm fond of the fresh fish (red snapper) broiled with a simple lemon, butter and cilantro sauce. The meat paella was excellent. They have about a dozen top notch mojitos and a couple of sangrias to boot. Not touristy. Cozy, but noisy. Service is affable but can be spotty or slow. It's in Miramar, a residential neighborhood. It's as good or better than the top PR cuisine joints in La Placita in Santurce but not as well known.

The menu for this restaurant offers a mix of Puerto Rican food accents. Plate presentation fabulous. Definitely not kid friendly, but great for an adult dining experience. It's a tapas menu, so don't come in hungry, unless you are ready to order a lot of plates and pay a lot of money. Unique wine menu. Loved the classy atmosphere.
