Sadly, it looks like Aji Tapas Bar is closed down. We visited the area yesterday and the former site of the restaurant is now just a private restaurant. Not sure what happened but sad to see Aji leave. Maybe it has just moved locations.

Thank you for your review. Aji is not closed permanently, only for renovations. We anticipate being open in the next couple weeks in the same location. If you are still on the island when we re open we invite you to come over.

Awesome food, a great waiter, and a very nice atmosphere for seaside dining at Aji. This is a very short walk from grand Caribe. Although the paella was not as good as advertised, all other dishes were pure delight, including the carrot soup, meatballs, snapper,...More

After eating out at nearly every restaurant north of San Pedro over our two week stay, Aji was our favorite dinner spot. Best and most friendly staff we found.
