I ate here with a friend back in January. We were in town for Christmas in Puerto Rico and we're here for El Maraton Cervecero festival. We ordered our food and it literally took an hour-maybe longer-for the food to come. And it was a busy Saturday night. We chatted and ordered drinks to let the time go buy, and... More

I really loved this restaurant--we ate outside on the balcony, overlooking the calm blue water. The weather was perfect--sun, few clouds, warm with gentle breeze. So sitting outside was ideal. The day we went, it was slow in the restaurant or we went at an off hour. The service was probably a little slow, but I was having such a... More

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 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 course beans... 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 .. !
