This place is a hidden gem in Miramar. Located inside the Hotel Marriott Courtyard in Miramar. Had a great dinner and the Tuna Tartare was the best plate. Had a few good bottles of wine with friends and had a great time. Service was Ok, but they have improved since my first time there.

We were tired when we checked into the Marriott Courtyard and decided to try this restaurant. We expected expensive, we didn't expect the food and service to be superb. We had the three course prefix menus, with no dessert. We saw some wonderful looking desserts go by, but we are not sweet eaters. I had the special Fois Gras it... More

We unexpectedly spent a night in San Juan when our flight plans changed, and chose the Marriott Courtyard as a convenient place to stay. We were surprised and delighted to find the hotel was home to an excellent restaurant, Ariel. The setting was quiet and contemporary, the food was superb (I had fish), and the service was quite attentive. The... More

An affordable and delicious breakfast. We had a generous portions that were well prepared. Our party of three adults picked the same item: a breakfast bread basket, juice, and coffee. The bread basket had five breads. The dining room was mid-sized, quiet, and overlooked their pool.

Went for brunch and it was good but really expensive. I guess the super fancy ambiance is included on the price. They even have a standard $5 charge for water (you learn about that when you get the check). Honestly, I've had great brunches in other places around the area and find the food is better and more creative. But... More

This is a good option for a quiet lunch or dinner. Very good food, nice wines, excellent service. The bar is another alternative if you only want to have a drink and eat something. Menu is limited, but with very good options.

I ate here for the second time yesterday. After several years and a change of name it was as good as ever. Fixed prices for two, three or four courses provide great value for stunning food.

I would highly recommend eating at Ariel. The chef is one of, if not the, best on the Island. The food is spectacular and the restaurant was recently renovated and the space is very nice. Its the perfect place for a meal away from the main strip in San Juan.

This restaurant was recently remodeled, and the staff was changed as well. Sometimes changes like this have serious repercussions and this is not the exception. This restaurant used to be one of the best fine dinning experiences in the island know, I am sadly to inform that the dining experience was good but not fine dining. The service was a... More
