We visited the restaurant for breakfast since it's very well known on the island and we wanted to try it out. The service was fast and the food & coffee we ordered was very well prepared and tasted great. My only let down was based on my expectation of the breakfast menu. The menu is pretty straightforward and safe. As... More

I've visited Pelayo frequently and have to say that the quality of their food is excellent for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Consistency is in their DNA. For breakfast I recommend their pancakes: fluffy with a toasted edge and delicious buttery flavor! Unlike any pancakes I've had before. Also try their eggs Benedict, they're amazing! For lunch I love their roasted... More

I had dinner with my boyfriend there this past Saturday and have to say it was an amazing dinner. We shared the paella and it was outstanding. Our server was Roberto and he did an extraordinary job. I highly recommend this place when visiting Puerto Rico. It close to all the near resorts and prices are reasonable.

We were there for the breakfast menu, but got only the a la carte list and had to choose from that. I had the sea bass and it was really good with sweet plantains on the side. My boyfriend had paella. Both dishes were good but a bit pricey as we had two drinks each and those meals and ended... More

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.
