Marmalade Review

"Wow!" may well be your first reaction after entering Old San Juan's hippest—and finest—restaurant. Its U.S.-born owner-chef, Peter Schintler, apprenticed with Raymond Blanc and Gordon Ramsay; here he's created a class act that's famous for its ultra-chic lounge bar. The restaurant's sensual and minimalist orange-and-white decor features high-back chairs and cushioned banquettes beneath recessed halogen lights. The menu uses many local, sustainable ingredients prepared California-French fashion, resulting in complex flavors and strong aromas. The lamb might be dressed with wilted spinach and feta cheese, while the sea bass might be served with a green-olive and blood-orange relish. You can build your own four- to six-course tasting menu, with or without pairings from the very strong wine list, or order à la carte. In addition, the restaurant is accommodating to vegetarians, those with food allergies, and other dietary restrictions.

    I would have Marmalade for breakfast, lunch and dinner, if I could!

    We were here strictly by chance. Looking for a place to eat and saw the menu posted outside. What a wonderful surprise! Fabulous food, great service and when we asked to meet the chef, he came to our table and talked about how he came to be there and the food he prepares. A great experience!

    Excellent all around

    The owner and chef took our order explained the plates and served us. The food is five star, I did the six course meal,,the price is high and well worth it, if u can't afford it don't bother going in the door, the finest food I've ever eaten, excellent service and atmosphere, would recommend to everyone I know to eat here if they come to San Juan.
