During our stay in San Juan we also ate at Oceano, Orozcos, El Jibarito, and Budatai, and Pikayo did not live up to these other excellent places. The lobster was overcooked, and when I noted this to the server, I was told that that is...More

Bill, it's unfortunate that you provided such a score only based on the lobster which is exactly how they told you, not as tender as Maine Lobster. Not all lobster are created equal! Cheers, Chef Wilo, Owner

We loved this restaurant! Service was excellent, attentive and helpful. The food was amazing. We had the chef's tasting menu and I also tried the wine pairing. I loved every course and the wines perfectly complimented them. It was a truly unique and wonderful experience.

Absolutely delicious homemade sausages and some of the best risotto I have ever had!! This is a great little restaraunt, there are only about six/seven tables, and I recommend going early as they did start running out of some items! The service was top notch!
