Let's be honest: You'll spend northward of $150 for two. But it will be well-spent--the best meal l've had in years. The cocktails were innovative and the food, bursting with stunningly subtle flavors. lt's a small place, so you will need reservations. They have valet...More

This French restaurant was amazing over all, what made it special was that it was so small and cozy you can almost miss it if you’re not specifically looking for it. It sits 30 people at most, so I strongly recommend reserving a table. David,...More

Niche is a lovely hole in the wall in a boutique hotel in the condado. The restaurant is very small and nicely appointed. We had a fruit bowl, French toast, pancakes and cappuccino. All were very good.

Small restaurant, reservations a must. The chef himself will greet you. Come with an empty stomach, leave very happy. Everything was good. If in doubt, order the 5 course tasting menu.

This is not a bad place where to eat French-Caribbean fare, but the place is fairly small. The service was not bad, neither was the food, but we were seating very close to the next couple, and so was everyone else.

I have only been there for dinner, but I believe they are open for breakfast and lunch also. It is connected to a hotel. The Acacia, so it has expanded hours.
