I dine in San Juan frequently. Pikayo is not to be missed for anyone who appreciates fine dining and a creative menu. The room, the food and the staff all combine to make it an outstanding dining experience.

We visited pikayo after a long day of touring around the island and we called for a reservation for 10:00 pm and they accepted to wait for us a little bit so we can try the place. The staff was super nice and the food was really good , some typical flavors for the appetizers and great international mixed with... More

Dinner last night at Pikayo was amazing. We never miss coming every time we come to Puerto Rico. We try to taste different things each time and last night was no different. Tuna tartare, mushroom risotto, swordfish with native gandulas and a marinated NY strip with sherry and mushrooms. Topped off with a chocolate soufflé. Doesn't get better than this.... More

This was quite an experience! A small storm hit upon our arrival to the restaurant, which caused the power to go out. One would have never known. Service did not falter once, the staff was also very apologetic. We didn't mind, weather is beyond their control. Despite the set back, they were still able to deliver a phenomenal meal. Hats...

excellent chef and food is presented with a flair. The menu offers something for everyone. The food is high quality and the cost is also expensive.

Modern design was a plus. Good choice of foods with great tastes but also a bit pricey. It comes with the territory though. If you're looking to save a dollar, try visiting other local restaurants for genuine Spanish food or even a few dim sum places down the road.

Before we arrived to reservation we went around the hotel it's really nice, as per the restaurant it's kind of $$$$ so if you have it visit we liked it.
