Positively surprised! Yantar means To Eat, in Asturias (northwestern province of Spain), and in Portugal. This is a spanish tapas bar, own by an Asturian. They have two menus; one personal, and one to share among several people. The dishes are exquisite, with a wide variety where to choose from. From small lamb burgers, to Octopus, galician style. ( What a feast). They have an extensive wine menu, and excellent bartenders. Service is excellent, and the prices could not be better. On Wednesdays they have Happy hour, two drinks for the price of one, until 9:00 PM. The place is nicely decorated, with very good taste paintings and sculptures. The glass blown chandelier in the bar is beautiful. I thought it was an original Chihuly, but it's not. From almost everywhere in the restaurant you will have an amazing view of the Condado Lagoon....beautiful. If you go early in the evening you won't need a reservation. Hope this will help you!

While my stay in San Juan, my goal was to visit every restaurant in the top portion of the list. Yantar was ranked second or third, so I visited here expecting some great tapas. Overall, yeah food were not bad. Being tapas restaurant we ordered many small dishes, but I can't remember anything that was especially memorably tasty. I think this place is overrated for sure.

Amazing view, 5 star service. Food was amazing. Make sure you to seat by the window, you won't regret. Valet parking available and the location is prime for tourists.
