The Fly Dining restaurant recently opened (late 2023) on Loiza Street in the Ocean Park area of San Juan, Puerto Rico. With a $500,000 investment, this is the chains 18th location. And from the website Puerto Rico is one of only 4 locations in the US. 

Flydining Puerto Rico Experience

The first thing you need to do is make your reservation online at FlyDining.pr where you select at date, time and experience. You can either pay in full or pay a deposit. Then, on your date, just make sure to arrive 30 minutes prior to your experience.

When you arrive at FlyDining, you’ll check in at the reception desk. After that, you can wait in the beautifully decorated ground level dinning area. This is where you’ll sign the liability waiver, and can also order food and drinks before your experience. The garden area dining is open to the general public for service as well, so if you have friends or family who are not going on the experience, they can enjoy a snack and wait for you there.

When it’s time to fly, the host will direct you to a seat in the sky. Your seat is part of the unique structure that accommodates 22 guests around a table and bar. Also joining you is a staff of four to guide all the guests through the experience.

The unique structure that hangs in the air by a crane

When everyone who’s participating is securely strapped, similar to a roller coaster ride, that’s when the fun starts. The entire structure is lifted by a single crane to suspend you 160 ft in the air, where you dine in the sky.

Review of FlyDining Puerto Rico

For us, this was a 5 star experience! And we would do it again. The food was better than expected, the staff was great, and unless you look down, you almost forget you are dangling in the air.

When we made our reservation, we opted for the Happy Hour for two reasons. First, we were slightly cautious wondering if it was worth it? And secondly, we were unsure how would we feel about hanging in the air for more than 30 minutes. 

I am happy to report, we both felt the experience was worth it. The unlimited house bubbly was acceptable for a house beverage and the appetizers were tasty. They served a pork belly tostado, smoked salmon on a mini bagel, a beef slider and a puff pastry.

As for hanging in the air, well, honestly if I looked down too much, it did freak me out. So, I just kept my eyes up and I was fine. Overall, we had a fantastic time!

I will say the dining in the sky concept is not for everyone, and if you’re afraid of heights, then this isn’t for you. However if you’re looking for unique things to do in Puerto Rico, then this should make the list!

Disclaimer: For the best experience, always check the website for updates, restrictions and safety guidelines. Of course with this type of activity, you should consider the safety hazards. So, therefore I am not encouraging or discouraging you from this activity, just sharing my experience.
