Fodor's Expert Review Augusto's
Under the direction of noted chef Ariel Rodríguez, this restaurant is one of the more celebrated in the San Juan area, popular with the city's elite. One of the few fine-dining restaurants left in San Juan, Augusto's serves well-executed international cuisine with strong French influences. The osetra caviar with seared tuna is superb, and the venison carpaccio with shaved foie gras is outstanding. A prix-fixe menu is also available with or without wine pairings. Begin with a classic cocktail like James Bond's Vesper Martini or chat with the sommelier, who will help you choose a bottle from the approximately 300 selections on the wine list. Local works of arts decorate the walls of the formal, old-fashioned dining room, giving it a lively, modern touch. Brunch is served on Sunday.
