My wife and I were wandering around Condado killing time, waiting for our room to become available at our hotel. We decided to go for lunch, and decided on Pelayo. It's very vibrant, though not overly noisy, and a couple blocks off the main drag. We ordered coffees (great coffee), and ordered an omelette with chorizo, peas and Serrano ham.... More

Pelayo's serves the freshest, most tender seafood I've had. The tripe appetizer was excellent as well, and it was fun to try "tembleque", a puerto rican dessert. Attentive and friendly services completed the experience.

We came here in a quiet Monday night....our server Abelardo made the night with great recommendations, and amazing service, he was on top of everything all night! Everything we ate was wonderful, the ceviche appetizer and eggplant appetizer were both great!

Local business professionals flock to this favorite local spot for the great food, the ambiance and scene. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Chef Luis Cueto and his brother Pancho will feed you like a king. Quality is their motto and Spanish flavor is their specialty. From Asturias de Puerto RIco, nothing is lost. Come for the food, stay and... More

Food was excellent, service also superb. This time I came with my family and every one enjoyed. One additional service of Pelayo's is the valet parking service right next to the restaurant that makes it very safe place to go with family

We had the paella and chicken Parmesan and both were delicious! We would recommend this place to anyone looking to spend some money, but get enough food to fill them up!
