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.

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

Had lunch with friends on Friday. We had the three course lunch menu which was simply spectacular. Great wine pairing with our food. If in the area make sure you don't miss Ariel"s cuisine for sure you will be back!!

It had been a long time since I visited Augusto and now again it was an amazing surprise: Very adequate pricing for fine dinning and excellent food and service.
