Perla at La Concha, A Renaissance Resort Ratings and Reviews

We all loved the atmosphere, service was very good. We sent back a carpaccio app but server did not take it off the bill. One of my guests got sick on Chilean sea bass, which may or May not have been " bad" as I had the same dish which could have been a mishap. But between the sea bass and the very poor quality carpaccio, I have to say, I would recommend this restaurant, but cautiously.
Magnificent setting, good service.
Shrimp app 5 star
Drinks 5 star
No manager sent to table with 2-3 issues 1 star
Price a bit high, but such a beautiful place.
I have to give it another Chance as I think we had s bit of bad luck, no endemic to the venue.

Perla is an upscale restaurant located in the La Concha hotel. Sometimes, unusual restaurants can be tacky or just weird; Perla is shaped like an inverted shell and is in a pool. It is neither tacky nor weird, in fact, it's just lovely. There was a birthday party going on for a couple of little girls. At first I had the "oh crap" feeling you get when you are about to pay a fair amount for a dinner and have to put up with noisy kids, but that wasn't what happened. The arched ceiling does an amazing job of dispersing sound, and we could barely hear them. By the time we left, there were many tables, but the sound level never got annoying. I dislike noisy restaurants.
The service was excellent, the server was there when we needed her, but not obtrusive. The food is unusual, but not weird. Portions are small, but I prefer several courses of small, interesting portions vice large portions of mediocre food. The food was nicely plated, and wonderfully paired and seasoned. They don't have salt and pepper on the table, you don't need it.
We each had an appetizer, a main course, and had room to split a dessert. I found the price quite reasonable. It wasn't cheap, but I have no problem paying for a well executed meal.

Unfortunately we had a bad server and an average meal. My Dad's Tuna was not prepared correctly, but the kitchen remedied it fast. We were rushed through dessert and our waiter could not have wanted us out of there fast enough.

This place is awesome! The food is fantastic, but go here for the style. I dont know when it was originally built, but Austin Powers and Dr Evil would definately have a meet up here. Beautiful views of the beach and of course the food was really good too. Would be the perfect place to hold a party of any kind. If you are in San Juan, you cant miss this place. We would certainly go again!!

I dined at Perla at La Concha for my Birthday (special Day).
On arrival I was seated at a great table overlooking the ocean.
I was happy with the quality of menu options. The Lobster Escabece was ok, and
somewhat bland. The Fennel Dusted Diver Scallops were very good as was the Orange Crème Brulee for desert. Service was very good. Overall a good experience. I would go back and try other menu options.

El menú de este restaurante ha cambiado. Solían tener unos aperitivos excelentes; ahora son comunes y corrientes. Además, la comida apenas tiene sabor. Es una pena, porque el local es hermoso.

We dined for the first time several days ago. It was a late reservation and the place was empty except for several tables. We ordered several appetizers which were good (the prawns in curry sauce were outstanding). The food was good but with many other fine dining places around, I would pass on the next visit

The food was delicious. The setting - overlooking the ocean - was fabulous. Because we were there on a Monday night, we had our pick of seating. But the entire perimeter of the restaurant overlooks the ocean. So no bad seats.

The food was delicious and fresh. My boyfriend took me here before he proposed. The only tarnish was my purse was stolen after I had left it at the table. Since we were one of two tables left in the restaurant at the end of the evening on a Sunday, it seems suspicious no one turned it in.

The Restaurant was beautiful,the service was just okay the prices where way over priced spent $200.00 on dinner for me and my wife she had water and I had 2 beers the portions were so small we left hungry. When I made the reservation I told them it was for our 30th wedding anniversary when we got there I told them again just so we could have a nice table that we got and that's it , not a couple of glasses of cheap champagne not dessert nothing but 200.00 and leaving hungry we will never go back

My husband and I chose Perla for dinner for our first night in San Juan. It was a very good choice. The restaurant is beautiful and very romantic and we had a nice relaxing dinner. The service staff was very attentive and friendly and made us felt very welcome. Lots of good choices on the menu as well. The food was amazing. Everything was presented in such a beautiful way. They also have a good wine list as well. I ordered lobster as the main course and it was wonderful. You will not be disappointed if you dine here.

My husband and I ate here for a special treat on our honeymoon and we thoroughly enjoyed the sunset view, yummy food and cocktails, and being treated very respectfully. We are not very fancy people generally speaking, but this definitely made us feel fancy and offered us the opportunity to have that "special honeymoon evening" we were seeking.

Had the baked lobster and it was amazing. Views were amazing. Only thing is I called ahead to let them know we were celebrating a birthday and didn't acknowledge it. Otherwise great night and the birthday boy enjoyed it.

This was my third visit to Perla and I look forward to dining there each time and I am more than pleased with the food, ambience and service. A truly unique room in the shape of a seashell with delicious flavors and nice staff.

While the food was delicious, the price paid for the portion size was way off. I understand the restaurant is in a hotel/resort and that means higher prices, but I don't feel that the value for price paid was truly there. The restaurant interior and view are excellent, the service was lovely but the value just isn't there. We ate in several restaurants, also in hotels in San Juan, and the value was considerably better. Again, I will repeat, the food was excellent, but the value falls particularly and notably short. The portion size on the sea bass entree was minuscule.

Really enjoyed my birthday dinner but there were some hiccups along the way. The hostess was super friendly and professional. The server took quite a bit time to greet us. But when he did we was very kind and hospitable. He explained that he was very busy so I understood why things were moving slow. But if that's the case go and beyond for your guests. No manager in sight all night, a table visit would have been nice, a possible comp would have been thoughtful. Great cocktail and wine list.

Go here for view and ambiance. Came here for my boyfriend's 40th birthday dinner, which I made sure to note in the reservation request area. Our reservations were early to ensure that we'd get a great table, and to be sure that we would be settled by sunset. When we arrived, there was only one other party, but when the host showed us to our table, he sat Scott facing the windows. Again, there was only one table besides us! Scott moved to the seat across from me so that he could get the full feel of the restaurant. If you are reading this, I am sure you are intrigued, as we were, about how the light reacts to the architecture and design elements - which Scott's back would have been facing had he sat in the aisle seat.
We enjoyed our grilled prawns and the arugula salad, but were not impressed with the seafood chowder. I liked my sea bass, but Scott's spicy seared tuna was fatty, not spicy and the lentils were not fully cooked. Which was only made worse when, in the middle of our entrees, the host came by and asked Scott to return to his seat in the aisle.
We ordered the Boca Negra Cake, and it was presented nicely with a candle and 'Happy Birthday' written in chocolate sauce.
We might go back to try other dishes,when we are in the area, but definitely not for a full fine dining meal, and not for a special occasion.

Disappointing that Perla is no longer lit up at night. Our waiter told us that the reflection of the lights onto the moving water was making too many motion sick, which is a bit funny, but totally understandable. The interior was beautiful. Service was great. They even opened the restaurant after close because we had left our visa in the bill fold. Thanks for the great service.
