We visit Puerto Rico every year and Pelayo is one of our favorites. Their Paella is one of the best around and is prepared to order (takes 20-30 mins) but sooo worth the wait. Seafood version is our favorite. Besides, you can get a bottle of Albarino (at just $25 a bottle) and an order of their pulpo (octopus), which is melt-in-your-mouth tender, and the wait time goes by very easily. The Paella is served from the pan table-side which only adds to the excellent service you'll receive. David has been our server and he is one reason we returned multiple times this year. David is happy to make recommendations and on a recent visit he recommended their grilled Langostinos (4 HUGE pieces) for my wife who is a shrimp lover. She loved it! For me, he recommended the trout. He also gave me options for preparation as I would like it. I chose olive oil and garlic and was presented with a tender and tasty whole fish which had been expertly de-boned. We added some Amarillos (fried sweet plantains) and rice and beans to our meal. Parking lot with valet across the street. Breakfast, lunch or dinner you cannot go wrong.
