Food was superior when finally arrived... Waitress missed our appetizer order completely... did bring the kids food first, which is always nice... then we waited and waited and waited for our food. Lucky the view was good and the beer was cold... Overall I would recommend, but I would also recommend patience!

I am Puerto Rican, born and raised here. I'm always been very proud of my people and our pride as the best of the best, specially in customer service. I have been in this restaurant many a times, and EVEN during the busiest times of the year, I never had such a terrible customer service experience. Our stay was of... More

Great Grouper! The food was great and the service was fantastic. Don't judge the restaurant by the area.

Not once in a60 minute wait was my table ever checked if in need of anything while this ridiculous long wait and clearly other guests served before even thought seated after me. I made eye contact several time with the waiters/ waitress. No apologies from the owner for the long wait at all. When I went to the bar counter... More

This was recommended by the hotel desk as one of the best in the area and it did not disappoint. The food, service and view were fantastic. There were three of us, and we each tried something different along with a few appitizers. We knew we wouldn't finish everything, but we wanted to experience variety and that is what we... More

I was so very disappointed with this restaurant. It had been recommended by several people and I went there expecting something great. The snapper was rubbery (I thought it might have been sitting under a heat lamp or "refried" but I can't prove that) and the red wine I ordered was ice cold and not very good--I returned it. The...

We were really impressed by El Makito, great seafood & lovely views of the sea from the terrace (it was pretty hot but they had fans out there & blinds too). We had lobster tails, which were huge & simple but yummy.

Fresh seafood and very nice view of the Caribean See at Naguabo, well worth the one hour drive from San Juan. I started with a conch and octopuss cocktail, perfectly maninated. Then close with lobster prepared in butter with mofongo on the side. The food was very well prepared and presented. Definitely will go back during my next visit to... More

Went to this "famous" restaurant at Puerto Rico east coast. My expectations were to enjoy our visit and very good food !! I ordered a Mojito and it was like a very sweet lemonade!! Then "salmorejo de jueyes (similar to a land crab stew) it was horrible! They just used canned crab meat and there was no flavor on it.... More
