Pikayo

Pikayo is located in the plush Plazo Hotel. Chef Wilo has a gift for making anything he touches taste magical. Many say that the tuna “pegao” and the foie gras with sweet plantains accompanied by black truffle honey are the best things to order on the menu, but you’ll just have to see for yourself.

Casa Lola

Start your meal with Casa Lola’s sangria, which is far more than just wine and fruits and has even come in second place at the Puerto Rico Sangria Festival! Although the menu has some Puerto Rican classics, everything has it’s own spin and is always presented beautifully. And as it’s open to 1am every day, no matter when you find yourself in Condado it can always been sangria time!

Bar Gitano

Just when you think that tapas can’t get any better, you discover Bar Gitano and Chef Treviño’s unique twist on the classic Spanish fare. The menu highlights include tapas, paellas, cocas (Spanish pizza-style pastries) and great wine. Try to get a seat outside to enjoy the beautiful Condado area alongside your meal.

Blonda

Brunch at Blonda could very well be one of your best experiences in Puerto Rico. The Blonda breakfast includes eggs benedict, french toast, house fries, pancakes and bacon. The chicken pasta penne is equally as good for a lunch choice, as long as you save room for the brioche bread pudding for dessert!

For a special night out in Puerto Rico, make sure you call Perla to reserve a table. This luxury seafood restaurant has spectacular interiors, softly lit by eight beautiful Murano glass lamps, casting turquoise sea patterns over the shell walls. The decadent menu serves sophisticated contemporary cuisine alongside a superb wine list. Perla’s wine cellar contains a staggering 4000 bottles! The architecture is as amazing as the food.

Learn the real difference between Puerto Rican and Cuban food first hand by visiting Yerba Buena. With a reputation as the original home of the Mojito cocktail, this lively, modern restaurant serves all manner of Caribbean fare including pumpkin fritters and mofongos (mashed, fried plantain). With large portion sizes it might be good to bring a group of friends to share.

Buenos Ayres Bar and Grill

Get a little taste of Argentina during your trip by visiting Buenos Ayres. They can create magic with their red meats, so anything from the grill menu is good, but we particularly recommend the churrasco or chorizo dishes. The menu also includes Argentinean empanadas (fried sweet or savory stuffed pastries), pastas and dulce de leche crepes for dessert!

Buenos Ayres, 56 Condado Ave, Condado, Puerto Rico +1 787 725 1818

Kasalta

Kasalta is beloved by locals and is a great place to have your weekend brunches. It’s a few blocks from the beach and many people say it has some of the best coffee around. In addition to the variety of pastries, great coffee and toasted breakfast sandwiches you can also try the caldo gallego (traditional Galician soup) or the octopus salad while you’re there. It has even been frequented by US President Obama, which tells you something about its notoriety, great food and friendly service.

Budatai

Budatai fuses Asian and Puerto Rican cuisine for a memorable dining experience, and with Chef Treviño in the kitchen you know you’re in for a treat. The interiors try their hardest to capture the essence of Asian dining, with oriental colors and Buddha statues dotted around. The menu is a combination of creativity and crisp flavors. And with regular live music and dance nights, including Spanish Flamenco and Cuban Salsa, the atmosphere sizzles just as much as the dishes!

With its elegant oceanfront setting and the overall historical setting in the Vanderbilt Hotel, 1919 offers an exciting yet modern dining experience. With a 4 course prix fixe dinner menu allowing you the chance to taste a little bit of everything, this really is the upscale world of Puerto Rican dining. Perfect for rounding off your trip in style.
