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. My wife has numerous food allergies (gluten, dairy, soy, peanuts, and some others) and usually when we go to a restaurant, we are cautious on any and all ingredients. When we arrived, we were asked about any food allergies and never once were concerned about if a food contained allergens. All of the staff were aware of our dietary restrictions and were intent on describing each dish and its ingredients and ensuring it met our needs.
The food itself was absolutely wonderful. From hors d'oeuvres to appetizers, entrees to desserts, everything was cooked perfectly and presented beautifully.
If/when we find our way back to San Juan, we will definitely be returning to Pikayo.

This restaurant is very overrated. My husband and I often frequent fine dining establishments, and did so in San Juan. The first thing I noticed was a horribly wrinkled table cloth. We should have left at that point. Then I ordered a signature cocktail which had muddled raspberries. The young man who delivered it announced that since there were no more raspberries in the kitchen, I would have to choose something else for my next drink. Honestly? They had run out of raspberries at 7:00 p.m.? The tasting menu was also below par. 1919 and Marmalade are much better choices.

Was disappointed to find that the premier dining venue at this hotel was closed when we stayed there on 1 JAN. If the hotel is going to promote itself as a resort destination, then it should be open on holidays to accommodate clients on vacation. I am sure the restaurant is just fine, to bad we did not get a chance to find out.

The food spectacular! The seafood entree I ordered was cooked exactly as I liked it,and you could not complain about the sides of asparagus and mashed potatoes. The dessert platter was stellar as well, the cheesecake was some of the best I've ever had (not a cheesecake person fyi), Pikayo's food is simply amazing and i have tried almost all of their dishes.

I was really disappointed with this place. We heard so many good things about the appetizers here, but the only redeeming thing was the presentation. You can find some far better places in the area if you know where to look.
