Perla at La Concha, A Renaissance Resort Ratings and Reviews

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.

Nice restaurant, great ambiance and view. Many drinks to choose from (wines, cocktails and beers). Food was very good, but not unforgettable (grilled swordfish) and a bit on the pricey side. Service was very nice and the dessert (Orange creme brulee) was outstanding.

The overall dining was exquisite. I celebrated my boyfriend's birthday and upon entering the restaurant, the staff greeted us both and asked him if he was enjoying his special day. I requested to sit by the window and I was granted that request right in the middle. The meal was scrumptious and the staff were pleasant.

Great food and service! This place is the perfect spot for a very romantic date or special occasion. Everyone at the restaurant was a couple. A few even celebrating anniversaries. Make sure you get there before sunset for an nicer experience.

The food was really good! The lobster was to die for :) the wine selection was good and not to expensive. The views are very nice, only if next to window thought. The servers nice and fast. And food went out fast.. I would go back there to have some wine and double of lobster!:)

Me and my husband had dinner for our first anniversary and we loved the place, the restaurant was very pretty and romantic. The food was good but the menu was too restricted. We would like to find more dishes. But what we ate was just perfect. Prices are high but the ambiance worthy.

As alway the staff very friendly and respectful. They got a table with a beautiful view for us and the service was excellent. My cousins ordered the bake chicken with the pumpkim ravioli and they love it, my wife got the aji tuna and it was very good. She also had the carpaccio as an appetizer and I tried it because it was different, but it was a winner. I had the red snapper over white rice and it was very light and pleasing. My dessert was the black cake that it turn out to be flourless chocolate cake. Very good. The wine selection by the glass can be better. They had a nice wine list, but half of the table wanted hard liquor so there was no need to order a full bottle. They used to have the fix menu with the matching wines. Hope they will do it again.

It was a pleasure dining here on July 3, during my stay at La Concha. The flavors on this menu are wonderful. The curry prawns was an outstanding appetizer. I also enjoyed the scallops entree. Everything on the menu looked great and i am happy with my selections, wish I could have gone back a second night to try other items on the menu. The wait staff were so professional, pleasant and kind, and I thoroughly enjoyed my meal.
The restaurant is beautiful and very romantic. We made an early reservation and got a prime table. We ordered from the Restaurant Pre-Fixe menu and wasn't crazy about anything we ordered. I'd like to go back, but order from the regular menu as it contained some amazing items.
The food is not at the levels you would expect considering that is a gem of a place and the prices are in the high end, but the service and attention is top notch and somehow you forget everything and enjoy the wine, food and desert. If you're looking to impress someone with a beautiful place to eat and chat and a romantic tone this is place.
