“Cheap, fantastic tacos”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Local flavor and great value. They are very accommodating to those whose Spanish isn't up to par yet, though don't speak English themselves.

If they're not open, try the taco shop that's down a few shops. Both are fantastic!

I found this restaurant on the last night of my trip. I only wish i had found it sooner! The tacos were excellent as well as the service. Great location to be around locals. I will be back.

“Tasty, local”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

We get tacos al pastor at home, but not fresh off the carving spit with a good chunk of fresh pineapple. That's reason enough to make the walk back to El Pique. It's also a great deal, and the guy we dealt with was friendly and was gracious with my bad Spanish.

“Fantastic Value”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

After many trips to the island we finally tried El Pique and we were very impressed. The food was fantastic and so very inexpensive. The al Pastor tacos and fajitas were amazing. I wish this place was open during lunch, I would eat there multiple times during my upcoming trip. As it stand we will be back at least once per trip from now on.
