My wife & I have not been to San Juan for a number of years. As such, we were not familiar with a lot of the newer restaurants. Pikayo being one of them. It was literally a block away from the Condado Vanderbilt, where we were staying. After reading the reviews, we had great expectations. We were not disappointed. The fresh fish is to die for....flavorful, and cooked to perfection. My wife had the cod the first night. She has eaten cod all over the world, and emphatically stated that it was the best she has ever eaten. The first night I had the escargot & barbecued shrimp.While I love escargot in the shell, the flavors were amazing. Not drowned in butter & garlic. The large shrimp, cooked to perfection. We both enjoyed it so much, we went back two nights later. We NEVER do that ! Two out of four nights at one restaurant? Worth going back for. Our meal the second night was just as good as the first night. I don't want to leave out the service. Impeccable, without being over-the-top (in your face). Everyone from the initial assistant who got us our drinks, to the manager who came over to insure that everything was outstanding - which it was. Price wise, exactly were you expect a fine dining establishment to be. On the pricey side, but reasonable.
Most amazing place for celebrate everything. The service is spectacular and the flavor are delicious. My favorite place in the world �!!!
Chef Wilo Benet - PR Celebrity Chef. What a great meal full of flavor. Love his Pegao Bites, Gouda Cheese Parisenne with Guava Sauce, Risotto de Gandules and Bistec Encebollado. Great for Special occasions, Family, Friends or Business.
The tasting menu was fun, beautifully presented, on time and inventive. Some were a bit too much to ask for my Boricua palate (risotto, cheese and gandules is a bit off for me) but I loved to go through the concept. My husband's beef tenderloin was perfection and the cheese souffle excellent at the end of my meal.
es un restaurante clase A . fino y prestigioso
Superb dining experience. Excellent service and gourmet food. The best restaurant in Puerto Rico period!
Pikayo has become one of the must do when we go as a family to PR. Milo and his team have done a fantastic job sustaining high quality on both food and service. Food is amazing (quality, freshness and presentation). This last time several of us ordered the tasting menu and needless to say, it was amazing. Can't wait for the next time we are back. Milo and team, keep up the great job...!
Fresh and very tssty food, great service.Delicious deserts.
We told the host that my wife and I were celebrating our 10 year anniversary. It was a memorable experience. The food, service, and environment were impeccable. Thank you chef Wilo for coming out to greet us and to wish my wife and I well in our special dinner. I highly recommend, if you are in the San Juan area, this is a gem not to overlook!
Supera la ficción !!! El mejor restaurant de PR !!!
Pikayo is a fine dining Puerto Rican cuisine restaurant. The food is not like any other as IT IS FINE DINNING! with a PR flair.Food is exquisite, love the Alcapurrias, fish and desserts. For all of those 1 to 3 star reviews, it seems that if you can not afford fine dinning, meaning great food, great service stick to Loiza, luquillo simple flavor with simple ambience Where you don't have to dress up and leave a 5 star What you all do not understand is that you get what you pay for, I got the book from Chef Willo and the recipes come out delicious, I'm glad to have it and It's a shame that guests come in and give poor reviews, but guess what? We the guest who have tried it many times, know the truth. The truth is that no matter how good it may be it will never be able to please guest who have already a misconception of Fine dining, nor guest who were born with unpleasant attitudes, demeanors and a problematic sense of life, including those who think they are food critics- Yelp. How SAD. As for all of us who enjoy Picayo, let's continue coming and writing great reviews, Bon Appetite!!
Hemos comido en varias ovaciones y todo es muy bueno, el trato, la cortesía en fin todo es excelente en ese restaurante.
Best restaurant in PR!! Food and service is always amazing!!
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary last night at the restaurant. The service from the lady making our reservation to the staff at the restaurant were exceptional! We had the Puertorrican tasting menu and everything was delicious. Definitely going back! Pikayo thank you for an incredible night!
The tasting menu was fantastic and well worth the price. Our server, Jorge, and his team made the experience second to none in fine dining. The best restaurant in PR and one of the best anywhere. Will definitely return on our next trip. *Dont forget the chocolate soufflé
Had dinner with business associates and was impressed with the creativity of the chef. My wife summed it up best when telling another couple about the food. "Almost too pretty to eat!" Service was impeccable!! Truly fine dining. Asked and got to meet the chef. If you are a "Foodie" this is where you need to be! If you are on a budget, you might want to reconsider.
We had a 7pm reservation and our table was right at the window facing the ocean. The view was fabulous. They had a special stool just for our purses. The portions were appropriate. Not huge, but quite fitting for a gourmet meal. The shrimp were fantastic. My friend ordered the lamb chops and couldn't stop raving about them. Dessert was not as good. We ordered a chocolate soufflé as well as the cheese soufflé. The chocolate one was delicious, but the cheese one was not at all palatable. The waiter had no issue removing it from the bill. Average price per entre was ~40+. Great service.
Great atmosphere and decor. The tasting menu with the wine pairing was great. Excellent service. Server was very knowledgeable and explained the menu very well. Will visit again the next time I'm in San Juan.
It was my sisters Birthday and we picked this restaurant based on my research of the Chef. The atmosphere was elegant yet approachable. We chose the Puerto Rican tasting menu. OMG!!! The well developed flavors of each course, the presentation of the food and the creativity of the recipies were magnificent!!! The staff, very professional, one more handsome than the next, very attentive!!! The only thing that would have put us over the top was some acknowledgement of us celebrating her 50th birthday.... the food and experience kind of made up for it...kudos!!!
One of my top 3 favorite restaurants in the world. Just go.... The service, food, location are outstanding.
