We eat here whenever we vacation in Puerto Rico. The food, service and decor are all 10/10. The freshest, perfectly cooked seafood are our favorites Looking forward to returning in January. We feel this is the best restaurant in Puerto Rico

Went with my family and friends (including 5 teenagers) to Pikayo. It was an amazing dining experience for our last night in San Juan. Martine, the maitre de, was so accommodating. He sat us at a wonderful round table and we were treated beautifully. Our greatest meal in SJ by far.

For our 48th wedding anniversary we decided to treat ourselves to Pikayo in the Condado area of San Juan. Instead of two entres, we chose several small plates. What a treat! We started with a rich mushroom soup that was more mushrooms than soup, followed that with small cheese empanadas in a wonderful dipping sauce, then on to a light... More

We ordered several things on the menu, a couple of sides, two small plates, and one main meal. All of it was delicious. Do be warned, the "small" plates, are truly small, but everything was delicious.

Stayed at the Condado Hilton for convenience, dined at the Pikayo based on trip advisor reviews and proximity. Turned out to be a great choice. Once we found the restaurant (its tucked into a mezzanine level), we were seated in a bright, modern dining room. The service was excellent, despite several large groups dining at the same time.

We ate here the first time 6 years ago. The food is outstanding. Everything was perfectly seasoned & cooked to perfection. They have a really nice wine list that pairs well with the menu. The service is impeccable. Possibly one of the best restaurants on the planet!

Pikayo is beyond excellent! My wife and I were very fortunate to visit on our honeymoon to San Juan. All of the staff are incredibly accommodating and knowledgeable.

Last time we ate at pikayo it was housed in the art museum. Now it's in the condado Hilton. The food and the service were outstanding. It was less of a "scene" than our meal at santaella the night before but that wasn't anything that bothered us or interested us. The food was amazing. The oyster shots on special were... More
