In Puerto Rico, there is no restaurant better that Orujo. I’ve been in multiple fine dining restaurants but this one is the best. It is an outstanding food in a Cosy and romantic place that made a plus to celebrate any important date….Oh, forgot to mention that our 17th Anniversary, which is today but we celebrate it yesterday evening, was great! …no wonder we still celebrating our Anniversary since the opening year. Thank you Chef Portela for still making this evening so special. Love it…Chef Portela….you Rock!

Amazing!! The best culinary experience We’ve had! Had the best time with my son and daughter. Chef Pórtela’s talent is unbelievable. Every single course was an experience in itself. Great ambience and attention like no other place. Please visit this place, it will not disappoint. Thank you chef for making our night special and memorable.

Chef Carlos is a true master of his craft. I've had the opportunity to dine at Orujo twice this year, each time a unique awakening of the taste buds. It's clear the dishes are made with fresh, high-quality ingredients, as well as creativity and pride. Treat yourself to this culinary experience – it's worth it.

La comida y servicios fueron excelentes. Nuestra reserva era para dos. No hubo respeto al distanciamiento, sentando a un grupo de seis personas en la misma mesa nuestra.
