Great Kitchen that goes with the View!

I had visited this lovely restaurant for more than 20 years, the service, quality food and the view is expectacular, call ahead and reserve a window table to spend a one of a kind sunset...

If you are staying in the rio grande / luquillo areas, you might want to consider Terraza Monte mar as a very good dining selection. Terraza de Monte mar is an excellent choice if you want to sample good sea food (puerto rican style). Great service plus great food at very reasonable prices make this selection a winner. I have...

My family went there on a local recommendation as a great non-tourist seafood restaurant. It was a cute place with a colorful waitress, who gave us recommendations, all of which was good. Now the bad- when the bill came we were charged more than double what was printed on the menu. We asked the best fish choice, and she said... More

We were very satisfied with a delicious meal (we had fresh fish), very attentive service, reasonable prices, and a beautiful view of the coast. They also have very economical lunch specials Monday - Friday that are well worth it and much less than fast food, while getting a great home cooked meal, including soda or bottled water.

After years, I went back to this restaurant with friends and was pleasantly surprised. The food was good. Even though the fried red snapper lacked a little taste it was cooked perfectly and when some salt was added it was really good. The mofongo was good and the shrimp a friend had was also good. The service is great and... More

We had fresh red snapper and arroz manposteao, and both were delicious. Service was very efficient and friendly. The views are spectacular. We recommend Terraza Montemar.

This is a hidden gem! The view is wonderful, the food is consistently delicious, and the service is A+ this family run restaurant delivers on freshness, top quality meats and wonderful seasoning. Try asking the staff what they have thats not on the menu, and you will never be dissapointed. The churrasco (skirt steak) is one of the best, tender... More

We ate dinner here and enjoyed the welcoming feeling. They had fresh red snapper that evening and it was delicious. I had shrimp in a garlic sauce which was also great and my husband had the seafood medley, also wonderful The coconut flan that we had for dessert was the best EVER and very reasonably priced!
