A little gem of a restaurant with creative dishes and twists on old favorites. Nice wine list. Family friendly!

My husband and I walked into this restaurant based on the reviews of others and a unique menu selection. However, the hostess just stared at us when we arrived. When we asked to sit at the bar, she asked us if we were sure. We sat at the bar to enjoy some drinks and food, but were never acknowledged. We... More

A friend recommended this restaurant - it is a farm to table establishment. The food was excellent and was worth the Uber ride. It's not in the tourist district so worth the time to find this place. We ended up getting several dishes to try among ourselves. Every dish was great.

La Jaquita Baya is a very special place for me. Is not just because the food is always excellent, but also because I know the Chef all my life. Always dedicated, talented, charismatic, and excellent Chef. There is no single choice in their menu, which you won’t say “wow”!! Very well priced and just my favorite restaurant for Puerto Rican...

Went to the Jaquita Baya to a friendly classmates reunion we do every two years, when one of our classmates who lives in California comes and visits. Unfortunately, although he was part of this years meeting he had to leave early. Our waitress with a fancy elegant name which I cannot remember was very helpfull, cordial and patient with these...

Great cocktails, suculent pork belly, delicious smoked beef, mussels in coconut broth, the rabbit was perfectly cooked, and the stewed beans with rice had a very authentic Puerto Rican flavor. Service was very attentive. Will definitely be back for more!

This was my second time at Jaquita Baya and it does not disappoint. The food is incredible, service is excellent and drinks are delicious - and it has a fun atmosphere. Both times I have been here, I have split several appetizers with friends so that we can try as much as possible - and I have yet to try... More

This is like third time visit with some colleagues. We know that in business change is necessary, but they change plates from the menu that were really good. Not that this time wasn't, but we missed those. Service was great and accurate time. The presentation still awsome. Food always please us. This a very nice restaurant.

La Jaquita Baya is nestled in a residential neighborhood in Miramar, away from the tourist strips. There's little to show for from the outside, but once inside, you're going to feel like a local at home. The food here is to die for. Try one (or two) of the tasty appetizers to start off. I assure you will be scratching... More
