Great food, menu, ambiance

This is a really nice restaurant right on the water. Fresh fish is tops on the menu but they have something for everyone in case you don't like fish. We were a family of 6 and had shrimp in garlic sauce, shrimp with tomatoes and onions, a special mixed seafood dish - all of it was delicious. Of... read more

Fried canapés and sautéed conch with a star filled sky. Easy to find and great harbor view on airy balcony. Que bueno!

We had a very nice dinner here. Seafood was very fresh and delicious. View from the balcony is great. Service was slow, but it was Good Friday and they were packed. The restaurant next door had run out of fish and closed early. I recommend the fish with tomato sauce. My daughter really liked the pulpo in garlic sauce. You... More

This restaurant has a very good location at the waterfront. However I've been there on various occasions trying to have a good day with the food and service. The food has nothing that any other regular seafood restaurant would have. Service is a disgrace to say the least. Last time I was there for a casual dinner with my boss... More

I came here with several friends. The food is delicious, fresh and plenty. I ordered the makito lobster tails stuffed with seafood. YUMMMM. The plate comes with two tails and its big enough to share. I had the mofongo on the side, and it was very good as well. This place is very relaxed atmosphere and people come to enjoy... More

The food was great .. My conch salad especially .. Good ample parking .. The service was ok .. It's hard to tell if a waitress has too many tables or if she sometimes takes a siesta ??? Maybe a little heavy on the price point !!!!? We enjoyed everything for sure though !! Hey we're on vaca .. !

If one is in search of a casual local restaurant by the sea, El Makito is it. The restaurant sits astride the open bay in Naguabo, on the eastern coast of Puerto Rico. The vista is untarnished by modern things - bay, residential housing and small shops together with trees and mountains in the background. The restaurant is family owned... More

Given that Naguabo port area is very small and modest, the food at el Makito is much better than one might think. We ate here three times in our four days in Naguabo. The first time was a Sunday night, and we had to wait for an outside table (well worth the wait to be in the sea air). We... More

I really don't understand what happened to the people that gave bad reviews to this restaurant. Maybe every restaurant has their ups and downs. My experience was incredible. I'm from Puerto Rico and we are known for our food so I have been to a lot of good restaurants on the island. We ordered the "el makito" lobster that is... More

My wife and I where looking for a good place near the sea to lunch and remembered my brother and Mother had mentioned the restaurant. A lot of employees to take care of your needs and dishes so big you can share.
