Chef thank you for a great experience. The flavors in the Puerto Rican tastings was unbelievable. We upgraded to the cheese souffle for desert and it was well worth it. From, NH, Arkansa, Florida and Mississippi we thank you.

The last visit we were lucky enough to meet Chef Wilo. This time we "snuck" in and settled down for the extraordinary food and impeccable service. Delicious. Not to be missed if fine dining is your goal.

Pikayo deserves its reputation as one of the top restaurants in Puerto Rico. Both the service and food proved to be exquisite. My husband raved that the filet mignon was the best he has ever tasted.They also offer an extensive menu of upscale wines.
