Great view!

We were told the view was awesome but the shuttle was about 45 late in picking us up (well that is after I called to remind them we were waiting) HOWEVER, the food was really good and the 'special' drink was very effective!! I had the mufongo with fired pork and garlic sauce.

We ate here our first night in Puerto Rico. It was close to the Windham Rio Mar. The restaurant provided free transportation to and from the hotel. The drivers drive eratically and didnt seem as friendly as other places we visited but we were grateful for the ride. We wanted to experience the local cuisine and ran with the recommendation...

We went there on the advise of someone by the pool at our resort. They said it was great and they were right. The view is amazing. The food was awesome and the service was excellent. Will go there again when we return.

Repeat of several other reviews in that the view is million dollar, the service was friendly and the food was decent. Fresh but not extremely flavorful and a reasonable variety. Average score from our 5 diners was a 3.5 out of 5.

Enjoyed a beautiful view while having a great supper. Tried mofongo for the first time. Server warned me I might not like it cuz it has a lot of garlic in it, but when he realized we were Latinos and italiana, he said "do it". It was delicious to us. The chicken pineapple that my daughter had was also awesome... More

Food was average, the service from our waiter was friendly and good, but slow. Here, you end up paying high prices for the beautiful view. Not sure I would return.

Breath taking view overlooking Luquillo Beach! The food was good but slightly overpriced compared to some of the offerings in Luquillo. I guess you are paying for the fabulous view....best seen mid day with the brilliance of the sun shining on the array of greens and blues.
